Kelley Farmer rode Dalliance to first Sunday in the $35,000 U.S. Hunter Jumper Association International Hunter Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford. The last horse to return in the handy round, Dalliance, a 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, broke through for the win after finishing second in the $50,000 WCHR Open Hunter Classic in Tryon.
Dalliance’s score meant that a jump-off between Amanda Steege on Zidane and Jennifer Alfano on Jersey Boy to determine first place was not needed. They were tied at the top of the class before Dalliance returned.
With the proceeds from the Derby, a check for $7,500 was presented to Make-A-Wish of Western New York.
