Riding in ECOGOLD saddle pads, Jacqueline Brooks and her Olympic mount Gran Gesto won the Grand Prix at Blainville yesterday, beating a field of 11 competitors. The win marked Brooks’ first major outing of 2009 season as Gran Gesto had not been in the show ring since the Royal in November.
"My horse was fresh, fresh, fresh,” said Brooks after winning the class with a score of 66.894%. “I was shocked by how excited he was, but I’m thrilled that he’s still so enthusiastic to compete.”
