Ocala, Fla. - Lisa Goldman proved that warm weather suits her this week at HITS Ocala. Just two days before bringing her horses to Florida, the temperatures at her home in Hawthorn Woods, Illinois plummeted to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Sunday, however, Goldman and her family-owned Centurion B basked in the southern sunshine while jumping to a win in the $50,000 HITS Grand Prix, presented by Zoetis.


Goldman and the 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding warmed up earlier in the week with a win in the $25,000 SmartPak Grand Prix, presented by Zoetis, before making it two in a row.

Representing her family's Red Coat Farm, Goldman was the first to best the first-round course, designed by Doug Russell of Ocala, Florida, which included 13 fences and a technical triple combination at the end. Eight more would later join her for a nine-horse jump-off. "Even though there were several clear, this course was a challenge - it was very technical and it fit the increase in money well," said Goldman...read more>

French on Fire as Delaveau Makes It a Double at Leipzig

The French were in fabulous form at Round 7 of the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping 2013/2014 Western European League series in Leipzig, Germany today where Patrice Delaveau recorded his second win of the season and fellow-countryman and reigning European Champion, Roger Yves Bost, lined up second.


From the starting field of 40, there was a 14-strong German contingent also chasing those all-important maximum qualifying points, but host-nation riders Lars Nieberg and Markus Renzel had to settle for third and fourth placings ahead of Ukraine's Katharina Offel in fifth as the French reigned supreme. A total of 11 went into the jump-off, and Delaveau won through with a typically fiery performance when third-last to go with the 10-year-old stallion Lacrimoso HDC...read more>
