Winter Equestrian Festival Week Three Delivers Excitement and a Triple Crown® Excellence Award for Peter Pletcher and Sincerely
Wellington, Florida (February 6, 2018) – Week 3 of the Winter Equestrian Festival brought more spectacular performances, and Triple Crown Nutrition continues to recognize the best-of-the-best who have gathered in Wellington, FL for this prestigious international show series. Coming in first in the $1000 USHJA 3’ Green Hunter Incentive Stake was Peter Pletcher riding six-year-old Dutch mare, Sincerely. This outstanding performance not only earned the pair a score of 87, they were also presented with the Triple Crown Excellence Award. This exciting prize is given to a horse and rider team that demonstrates exemplary achievement within the equestrian community, as well as showing exceptionally good health and fitness.
Sincerely, who is owned by Kate Gibson and Shadyside Farm, is the perfect example of what makes the Winter Equestrian Festival so exciting for horse enthusiasts around the world. “She’s been champion the last two weeks,” stated Pletcher about the mare, “and I’m hoping we continue on with our great success.” Sincerely showed off her exceptional athletic ability to the crowd’s delight. “She’s one that you really want to watch because she gives a great jump” Pletcher continued. “When other horses are tired and just skimming the jumps, she’s always careful,” he added.
Held at The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival, runs through the end of March, and therefore many more exciting weeks of intense competition are yet to come. This year’s circuit will offer more than $9 million in prize money throughout the duration of the season and will feature many of the world’s top internationally ranked riders.
