Gallant Reflection HU, a Zweibrücker stallion bred in New Mexico by Anne Sparks of Horses Unlimited and ridden by Lisa Wilcox of Loxahatchee, FL,
won the Six-Year-Old Championship at Lamplight Equestrian Center, Wayne, IL August 21st - 23rd. Gallant Reflection HU took the lead on
Friday in the preliminary test and went on to score to score an 8.200 in the final test, for an overall score of 8.136. The final test was highlighted by the stallion’s
trot, which earned a score of 8.800! The dark chestnut son of Galant du Serein x Rohdiamant was reserve champion of his 70 day test in 2013.
When asked about the win, Lisa Wilcox was quoted by the Chronicle of the Horse: "I was very happy with the ride today,” said
Wilcox. “I thought I had a better canter, and they thought so too. It started out a little tight after he spooked at the gal moving
the [opening of the] ring. But he settled in, and then he was quite nice to ride. The trot tour was nice, and then I was very happy
with the walk; I felt like I could let him out a little more today than I trusted letting him out the first day. I was also very
happy with the canter—nice changes, nice reaction to the changes.”
WakeUp, an RPSI licensed stallion by Wagnis x Supermax Macho, bred by Beverly McLean and ridden/owned by Emily Wagner Miles, earned
Developing Grand Prix horse championship title. The final test earned Miles and WakeUp a 68.458%, for an overall score of 69.934%. Congratulations to these two talented pairs
which the RPSI is proud to represent in their stallion rosters!
