Littlestown, PA – May 14, 2015 – Kirk Webby and Brando Du Rouet racked up top ribbons throughout the winter at HITS Ocala, and now the talented combination is continuing their winning ways in the North East. The pair kicked off their spring show season with a victory in the $7,500 Blue Rock Classic Welcome Stake on Thursday evening at Swan Lake Stables.
From the field of 23 starters, Webby and Brando Du Rouet were one of eight combinations to advance to the jump-off round. As the very first rider in the ring, Seth Vallhonrat was the first to advance, setting the jump-off time to beat right out of the gate. He elected to complete his jump off round immediately following his first round, and he and his own Cuesta Mucho set the standard for the rest of the class with a clear jump-off time of 39.128 seconds. At the end of the night, that time would be good enough to secure Vallhonrat the fifth place finish.
