Wimbledon Star in Florida

Clayton Fredericks Rides Graceland Horses for the Win at Galway Downs
Galway Downs in Temecula, California is the big event of the fall season. Clayton Fredericks won first place on Graceland's Wimbledon Star in the Open Preliminary division. They scored a 30.9 in dressage and held onto the lead until the end finishing a mere 1.5 points ahead of the second-place finisher.
Clayton also rode Quintano (owned by Chuck Moore and Steve Chase) to a third-place finish in the Open Novice division Quintano's first novice competition. He started with a strong dressage score of 31.5, but dropped one rail to finish on a score of 35.5. Our new working student Hunter Trombley was Clayton's groom for the weekend.
Peggy Moore rode Leibchen (our stallion Libero Star's daughter) in the Senior Novie Amateur B division. They scored a 34 in dressage, but lost a rail to finish in fifth place with a 38. Dana Chase and Aerolite were competing in the CCI**, but unfortunately they had a fall on cross-country. Fortunately both of them are doing well, and Aerolite is getting some well-deserved time off after a good season of competitions. Overall, a wonderful time was had by all, and we can't wait to return to Galway in the spring.
