Bluegrass '10 Double Lift

On a rainy Kentucky day Don competed in his first double lift. He rose above what we were expecting from a young 3 year old. He made only one mistake and that was the little bit of trouble he had on the turnback and he crossed over before he committed to the lookback. After that he worked like a pro and got RESERVE CHAMPION ! Congrats to Tommy Wilson and Sly who won the whole thing.

Congratulations to Scott and Don. I saw the second qualifying run and it was spectacular, to bad I missed the Sunday run. I also saw a couple of nice runs from you Jenny.
