SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO — Blenheim Equisports hosted its first CSI3* at Spring Classic II to great success. Comprised of the 1.35m Bronze Tour, the 1.40m Silver Tour, and the 1.45m Gold Tour, the competition welcomed 82 horses from 13 countries.

Rancho Santa Fe’s Keri Potter captured an early win in the $2,500 Bronze Tour Welcome Speed Stake on Jo Cho’s American-bred Oldenburg gelding Diabolical C. The pair also won the Young Jumper Championships last September. “I don’t think I’ve ever gone this fast with him until today, so I’m very pleased,” exclaimed Potter.

Potter put the cap on a stellar week by winning the $80,000 CSI3* Gold Tour Grand Prix aboard the 12-year-old Oldenburg gelding Bitalica (Julia Koetting, owner). Prevailing in the seven-rider jump off, Potter edged out young professional Zazou Hoffman aboard Woodacre Stables LLC’s Samson II by just a quarter of a second! Potter noted, “This is a pretty cool horse. I’ve been riding him for about a year now. He was pretty scared when I got him, so it’s been great to form a relationship with him.”

Potter is also a mother of two which keeps her busy outside of the barn. Training out of Tres Palomas Farm in Rancho Santa Fe, Potter is paying her successes forward with 16-year-old student Hannah Loly, who is posting win after win under her tutelage.
