|Red Coat Takes Top Two Spots in WIHS Adult Jumper Classic
Wayne, IL – June 11, 2016 – It was a good day for Red Coat Farm at Showplace Production’s Spring Spectacular in the $15,000 Marshall & Sterling 1.30M Grand Prix. Taking the top two places were Kyle Perkovich on Roc My World and Lisa Goldman on Sovereign. Perkovich took the win with a double clear round and a speedy time of 29.961 seconds, the fastest out of a field of 37 entries.
The 1.30m course, designed by FEI course designer Catzy Cruz of Mexico, included a single vertical Horse Flight jump at the end of the course, which resulted in a lot of four fault rounds. The other trouble spot was the wide oxer into the triple combination at the end of the course, giving riders hind rails and a few stops.

Winn Alden and Charlie took the third spot, with Goldman rounding out the top five on Zacantos Z and Chasinta.
“This is a great stepping stone class for the younger horses,” said Goldman. “It can be a strong meter thirty instead of going straight into the $20,000 Welcome Stake.”

“It’s exciting, we’re so excited,” said Mary Goldman of the successful day. “I love the series. I love that they have it capped off so it’s either inexperienced riders or some horses that need the experience in this division.”
Coming off a fresh win at the International Omaha horse show, Perkovich’s mother, Brenda, was overjoyed by his victory today.
“I’m so excited and overwhelmed. It’s been an exciting past few weeks. He’s grown so much and has put so much time in the saddle. He’s going to be 15 [years old] in July.”
Perkovich has certainly proven that age is just a number, with other wins like the Low Junior Classic at the Split Rock Jumping Tour in Lexington, Kentucky.
“I want to ride my best here and go all out and make the Spring Spectacular a really great time,” said Perkovich of the next two weeks.
