In their first evening class together, Bedoya and the 16-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding – owned and previously ridden to great success by Bedoya’s husband, Daniel Bedoya – produced a double clear effort over the Britt McCormick-designed course for the win.

Finishing in both second and third place was Joshua Tabor aboard Concanto and Calispera, respectively. Tabor and Concanto, owned by Carat Group LLC, also earned the win in the $5,000 LubriSyn 1.25m Jumper Classic, held on Friday, September 30.

Lorek earned her big win of the week in the $5,000 Double Oak Tack National Hunter Derby riding Call Me Cool, owned by Allison Dodds.

On their way to the win, Lorek and the 8-year-old Holsteiner gelding had to top a highly competitive field of 42 entries. Taking second place were Megan Odozynski and MTM Pocket Listing, and Belynda Bond and Santana rounded out the top three.
