Todd Minikus (USA) welcomed another successful week of competition during the second installment of the ESP Spring Series at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, FL, after taking a first-place finish in the $35,000 ProElite® Grand Prix last week.
Minikus once again piloted the Quality Group owned Quality Girl to the blue ribbon in the $25,000 ESP Spring II Welcome Grand Prix, after a speedy run around the fast track, designed by Anna Catalina Cruz of Mexico in 35.281 seconds.
It was a “girls’ day” no doubt in the $25,000 ESP Spring II Welcome Grand Prix on Friday, April 13. After Minikus secured first aboard Quality Girl, Michelle Guardino’s Fancy Girl was ridden to the second-place position, with Willie Tynan (USA) after finishing the jump-track in 38.86 seconds.
Margie Engle (USA) rode Bockmanns Lazio, owned by Gladewinds Farm Inc., to third place in a swift 36.239 seconds, but ended the second round with four jump faults.
