Hunter Derby
Three fabulous weeks of horse showing wrapped up yesterday at Waterloo Hunt in Grass Lake, MI.
Sunday kicked off with the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby. Greg Crolick and Nicole Ballard’s
Can Fly bested a field of 47 competitors to take home the blue ribbon and top check. Second place
honors went to Copper Fox LLC’s Moonwalk with Hillary Johnson in the irons. Rounding out the top
five were Greg and Claybrook Farms’ Encore CBF in 3rd place, 4th place was awarded to Meg Howard-Fuleky and Leonti owned by Gabrielle Thornton, and Cynthia Chaconas’ Sunkissed and Roger
Turner picked up the fifth place ribbon. The highest scoring non-professional was 11 year old Jada
Fuleky on Fox Meadow Farm’s Copperfield who placed sixth.

A special thank you to our Competition Management Patricia Haines
