Back-to-Back Victories! Aaron Vale Completes the Double with Win in $50,000 Hits Grand Prix CSI 2* at Ocala

Ocala, Florida, USA – February 26, 2022 – The second half of the 2022 HITS Ocala Winter Circuit is underway, with the sixth week of competition coming to a close. The Ocala Masters featured FEI CSI2* competition, the $100,000 John Deere USEF Grand Prix, a $10,000 Diamond Mills Hunter Prix, USHJA Zone 4 Handy Hunter Challenges, and masterful riding all around. Read on for the winners of Week VI’s featured competition.

After missing the earlier podium on Saturday, Vale (USA) asserted his dominance by returning to the top in Saturday’s $50,000 FEI Grand Prix. From fifth in the order, Vale and Lori Osterstock’s I Adermie R4 completed Danny Foster’s course cleanly in 88.27. That proved to be the only fault-free run, as Luis Sabino Goncalves (POR) incurred three time faults in his otherwise clean run, and all other riders had at least four jumping faults.
