Kady Abrahamson Wins Second Consecutive WEC – Wilmington $30,000 Grand Prix
Kady Abrahamson (USA) and Maraca LS La Silla jumped to victory again in the WEC – Wilmington $30,000 Grand Prix on Saturday, July 17, topping a field of 25 entries. Kevin McCarthy (IRL) and HSS Catch A Star took second, while David Beisel (USA) and Essince W rounded out the top three.
“She has a big stride and is very brave," Abrahamson said of her winning mount. "I took a chance with her on the bigger jumps because I know if she has a good pace to support it she will do great. Today I left strides out in the rollbacks, and that really helped us.”
