Fast Facts: 2021 Stable View Oktoberfest

By Meagan DeLisle - USEA Staff

For the sixth year the Oktoberfest CCI and Horse Trials will return to Stable View in Aiken, South Carolina this weekend on September 24-26. Oktoberfest is one of eight CCI4*-S events on the 2021 calendar and will also feature a CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S, and Beginner Novice through Intermediate horse trial divisions.

The Field:

  • There are 30 pairs set to contest this year’s CCI4*-S, which is down 16 from 2020
  • Stable View has run its Oktoberfest horse trials five times and Phillip Dutton has won the top class three of those years (2016 with Z, 2018 with I’m Sew Ready, and 2019 with Z. He has two entries this year including his recent Great Meadow International Winner Fernhill Singapore, a 12-year-old KWPN gelding (Singapore x Riedellia) owned by Ann Jones, Tom Tierney, and David Vos along with Sea of Clouds, the 10-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Malibu Moon x Winner’s Ticket) owned by the Sea of Clouds Partnership.
  • Doug Payne and Quantum Leap, his and Jessica Payne’s 10-year-old Zweibrucker gelding (Quite Capitol x Report to Sloopy) are the highest placed pair from 2020 returning this year – they finished in third last year, can they best that in 2021?
  • Of the field, 9 of the horses competing are 10 years old. The oldest horses competing are 15 years old and the youngest are 9 years old.
  • Leslie Law will have his hands full with his four entries Voltaire de Tre, Typically Fernhill, Lady Chatterley, and First Class. Of Law’s entries, two of his horses make up the field of five four-star first-timers: Jackie and Steve Brown’s 10-year-old Holsteiner mare Lady Chatterley (Connor x Jucy) and Craig McCallum’s 9-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Typically Fernhill (Dondoctro Ryal K x Castlefield Sarah). Both of these horses helped Law make a one-two punch in the Intermediate division at the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds with Lady Chatterley taking home the champion tricolor and Typically Fernhill bringing home reserve honors.
  • Other horses attempting their first four-star track are Alexandra Baugh’s 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding I Spye (Harlequin Du Carel x Lombardos Corner) and Jimmie Schramm with Mark and Katherine Bellissimo’s 10-year-old German Sport Horse mare Eclaire (Furejev x Evita).
  • Sarah Kuhn is entered in her first-ever four-star with Deborah Kuhn’s 9-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding Mr. Cash van de Start (Deauville de la Vie x Ishtar van de Start).
  • 11 pairs are using this as a prep run for the inaugural Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill which is just three weeks away.

  • Peter Gray (CAN) is the president of the ground jury for the CCI4*-S and will be joined by Jan Conlon (USA).
  • Andrew Temkin (USA) is the technical delegate and will be assisted by Amelia (Muffin) Pantaze (USA).
