Claiming victory at the WEC, Goldman-Smolen won the exciting $25,000 WEC Grand Prix on Barbara Disko’s Sovereign, bringing crowds to their feet. She also won the $7,500 Futures Prix on her Bengtsson VDL with a blazing jump-off during week 5. Goldman-Smolen was second in the Welcome Stake aboard the tiny but mighty 15 hand Bengtsson VDL as well.
Sovereign and Goldman-Smolen are frequent visitors to the winner’s circle and have competed successfully in bigger classes such as the Ocala Million, the $100,000 Grand Prix and the $500,000 Grand Prix at HITS Chicago. The pair won the $50,000 WEC Grand Prix in October at WEC. Grooms Sarah and Marco, earned themselves the groom’s award at WEC for Sovereign’s perfect turnout.
