North Salem, N.Y. – Sept. 15, 2016 – The American Gold Cup welcomed 80 athletes to the Grand Prix Field on Thursday to compete and honor legendary horseman Donald V. Little in the $35,000 Don Little Memorial Welcome Stake CSI4*. In the end, it was Peter Wylde (USA) who sped to the top over the large field of international horses and athletes aboard Kathleen Kamine’s Paloma.
“This horse is really coming into her own,” said Wylde of the 10-year-old Holsteiner mare. “She was second in the opening class at the Hampton Classic two weeks ago. She’s incredibly fast. She and I have been working together for almost a year now and it’s really starting to come together. Consistently, show after show, she’s getting a great result. I am excited for her because I think she has a lot in her, more than just the opening class. I think she can do the grand prix eventually. She’s a fighter, a trier and very hot, but she wants to be good so it’s nice — when a mare comes on your side. She did everything today.”
