Winner’s Circle – Christian Coyle (IRL)

“She’s just naturally fast,” Coyle said of his mare owned by Old Oak Farm. “I actually did the same numbers on the first line, and then it was pretty neat back to the in-and-out, but my horse is just a little faster. I love it here in Lake Placid. Last year was my first year here and I love it. The ground is fantastic and my horses jump really well.”
