After three Horse Trials Molly Kinnamon’s, MK’s Concord Dawn is leading the Plantation Field Equestrian Events Inc. (PFEE) Thoroughbred Competitive Series with 12 points. MK’s Concord Dawn (Jockey Club Registered Name: Mason) is a 6-year-old bay gelding by Smart Guy out of the Eastover Court mare Delta Street. Bred by Janet and Tim Ritchey, the latter a former event rider himself, this Pennsylvania-bred has won two Novice divisions at the Plantation Field Horse Trials since the Series began.
In commenting on the Series president and founder of Plantation Field, Denis Glaccum, said, “We are thrilled over the interest in this series. We have already 61 horses competing with 23 getting points toward the award, and we believe that the numbers will grow during the competition year”. The winner of the Series will win a $5,0000 cash award
The Series, sponsored by long time PFEE supporter Kathleen Crompton, was created to highlight and recognize Thoroughbreds in the sport of Eventing. Points are awarded to horses in the Beginner Novice, Novice and Training divisions at all PFEE recognized and starter trials. The total prize money of $5,000 will go to the owner of the top-placing Thoroughbred horse, and a $500 bonus will be awarded to the breeder of the horse. The goal is for the series to grow over time and possibly become a national series. The competition is open to all Thoroughbred horses with a Jockey Club registration, a tattoo or an affidavit certifying parentage from the breeder.
