|What a gallop!|
Earl described the Steeplechase as a bit of a surprise to the youngster, and he required a bit of scrappiness to complete the phase, but that Scotty had plenty of heart and a strong desire to compete. The pair came away with no penalties to add to their score and a new knowledge of jumping at speed. The rigors of endurance day suited "Scotty" just fine, as he settled into his rhythm and improved as the day went on. His beautiful uphill gallop was truly a sight as he completed the difficult cross country course and crossed the finish line with ease.

The Stadium test for Scotty and Earl was nothing short of flawless. They had a stylish and text-book round to finish on their Dressage score and secure the win. In fact, Earl was found back at the barn fielding inquiries about purchasing this great talent after the beautiful round! Although the Syndication has no immediate plans of selling Let's Go DF, there are a few shares available to those interested in sharing an exciting and successful journey with Earl and Scotty.

Scotty will now be taking a short, but well deserved break before the Fall season commences. He looks forward to competing in a few dressage and jumper shows before the YEH 5 Year Old Championships at the end of the year.
