DEVON, Pa.--Arielle Aharoni on Dutch Times won the $5,000 Speed Stake, beating Laura Chapot on a brand new mount, Kanjer P, on Friday evening, Sept. 15 at the Devon Fall Classic.
Aharoni, who went close to the end of the class, finished clean in 69.569 to win over Chapot, who went seventh in the orde and also was clean but in the slower time of 70.985.
"This is my first time winning at Devon," said Aharoni. "I have been hungry for the win and I'm happy it finally happened."
Along with finishing second in the Speed Stakes, Chapot won three classes earlier in the day.
Riding Mimi Chapman's Ciego, Chapot won the 1.30m Jumpers in a six horse jump-off.
Chapot was clean in 34.586 to win over World Championship team gold medalist Devin Ryan on Kazarro, clean in 37.316, with Linda Sheridan on Gem Star Van De Vlierbeek Z placing third, clean in 40.14.
"CIEGO is a really unique horse," said Chapot. "He was bought by Mimi Chapman for me to show and for her to have lessons on. That's a hard find. He'll go to the ring with me and be competitive and then go home and go across the street, watch the deer and be relaxed for a lesson over 2 'fences. He's an angel for his owner."
Chapot also won the Six Year Old Young Jumper on Tyson Fury, making it two for two in that section as she also won on Tyson Fury on Thursday.
Then in the Seven year Old Young Jumper, she won on Ginola.
Enthusiastic crowds filled the grandstand for the evening performance and even had some lined up along the ringside railing.
The midway was filled with kids having fun, and shoppers toured the boutiques and enjoyed the food and live music in the Fair area.
