Goldman Edges Perkovich out of a Third Win in the $15,000 Marshall & Sterling 1.30m Grand Prix, presented by Nutrena

Wayne, IL - June 24, 2016 – Competition resumed Friday at Showplace Productions Spring Spectacular at Lamplight Equestrian Center. The feature class of the day was the much-anticipated $15,000 Marshall & Sterling 1.30m Grand Prix, presented by Nutrena, a leg of the new $150,000 1.30m series held at 10 Showplace Productions shows through the fall.
 
The young equestrian phenom, Kyle Perkovich and Roc My World (Roc USA-Hidden Creek’s Wichita), owned by Brenda Perkovich, have rocked this new series by winning the event during Spring Spectacular I and II. Fellow competitors and trainers are impressed with Perkovich and his speedy mount from their fearless and fast performances and the pair have been the topic of social media posts.

During Week I and II Perkovich beat his trainer, Lisa Goldman and quite a few other professionals. But this week it was not to be. Perkovich had a fast first round and the fastest of all the jump off rounds, two seconds faster than Goldman. But the pair knocked down a rail and landed in fourth place. He was in good company though, with with the top three spots going to professionals. Goldman with her own Hindsight, was the fastest of only three double clear rounds out of 39 and earned the victory gallop

“He was just a little too fast,” Goldman said. “He saw the distance. He was so good in the first round. He had it won but he just came in too quick on the left corner of that in-and-out. He put a lot of pressure on himself. But he rode really well.”
 
Douglas Boyd and Sapphire Riding Academy’s Calvigo earned the second place prize. Together only three weeks, Boyd and Calvigo are proving to be a great duo. They won the $2,500 1.30m Open Jumpers, sponsored by Marshall & Sterling, Wednesday.

“He was great,” said Boyd of Calvigo, chestnut Dutch Warmblood gelding (Vigo D'arsouilles-La Reine). “I ended up having to add a stride to the last line. He made a great cut after the gray line and made the inside turn and he was so bold and he knew exactly what I wanted. He landed going out to the right and he slipped and ended up going further right so I had to react and do an extra step.”
 
“It was a fairly straightforward course with a really strict time,” Boyd said. “You really had to know your horse and keep moving. Pace and track were important. I thought it was a perfectly fair course,”
 
Alexis Boda, a Chicago area professional and her own Esparta were third.

Goldman leaves for Europe June 29 to participate in the 2016 United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Show Jumping Development Tour led by USEF Show Jumping Developing Rider Chef d’Equipe DiAnn Langer. Hindsight, a gray Holsteiner gelding (Vision-Rhiannon) is one of the horses she is taking.
 
“He has a gigantic stride and I just wanted to do one nice round before we go to Europe,” she said. “He was really good. I did the leave-out, which got a little slow for him. It ended up working out for me.”

For Adventure and Giavanna Rinaldi - Photo by Andrew Ryback Photography At Showplace Spring Spectacular, Rinaldi has rides on about five or six horses. At shows like WEF during the winter, the 16-year-old said she often rides more than 20 depending on the show and weekend. She said her trainer, Alex Jayne, connects her with different people to ride their horses.  “It’s nice to get a feel for different horses. I’ve ridden quite a lot of horses before, all of them are so different." When asked about her future in riding, Rinaldi said becoming a professional trainer and rider is something on her to-do list. “I kind of want to be both. That’s my plan for the future after college.”
