Wellington, Florida, USA – June 11, 2021 – On Friday, Hailey Royce (USA) of Wellington, FL, and her own Sonic Boom dominated in the $10,000 Bainbridge Companies 1.40m Open Stake to win the class as the only double-clear pair. Going eleventh in the order, Royce (USA) and Sonic Boom mastered Loyola’s first-round track, then completed their immediate jump-off in a fault-free time of 47.63 seconds to capture the early lead.
