AIKEN, S.C.--Gillian King of Malvern, Pa., who winters in Aiken, won the $10,000 Grand Prix at High Fields Equestrian Center on Kilbunny Vossilli in Aiken on March 17.
Six made it to the jump-off and King went clean in the fastest time to win the class.
Kilbunny Vossilli is an 11-year-old Irish bred mare owned by Joss and Ed Delussey's Monkey Fish Investments.
Another horse owned by the Delussyes, Main Line Cache, placed well in the Welcome Stake at High Fields, and Best Things in Life, a young event horse owned by Cynthia and Charles McGinnes, won the 1.5m class.
"I've had Kilbuny Voselli since January," said King. "We imported her from Ireland, where she was bred by Kilbunny Sport Horses. She has a lovely attitude and a fantastic jump. She's a nice type and a fantastic horse to go on with."
