Of the 31 competitors to test the course, designed by Hector Loyola of Wellington, FL, eight combinations advanced to the jump-off. “It was a good class. I went first so I was just trying to go as fast as possible in the jump-off with the other eight other riders behind me. I guess I was a little bit lucky that nobody went clear in the jump-off and I ended up winning the class,” he commented.

“It was a new ride for me. I have only been back here for the last seven months. She came from a rest from the summer and she felt really good. Now we will start warming up for circuit. She is a really good mare and I have a lot of hope for her, especially for the winter. I am looking forward to more competitions with her,” concluded Barrios.
