Wellington, Florida, USA – November 19, 2021 – Earlier in the day, the $10,000 Bainbridge Companies 1.40m Stake showcased the efforts of 35 horse-and-rider partnerships. Of the initial field of entries, 12 duos advanced to the jump-off to vie for the top prize, whittled down further to just five double-clear pairs by the end of the class. Midway through the jump-off, Ali Wolff (USA) and her own Footloose HX set a quick standard without faults in 41.56 seconds, which no other pairs were able to surpass to solidify the early frontrunners as the class victors. Just one second off the pace, Sophia Studd (DEN) and Holsteins Matina, owned by Marie Botved Studd, finished in the runner-up position with a clear ride in 42.55 seconds. Third place went to Darragh Kerins (IRL) and Eve Jobs’ Intuitive in a fault-free time of 43.94 seconds.
