Budweiser Upperville Jumper Classic

Today I'm here for just the Jumpers. Margie Engle, a hero of mine since my teens, qualifies not one but two horses for the jump off. She sets the time to beat, then beats herself with her second horse. Up Chiqui, the final horse to jump off, kicks out crankily several times as he gallops towards the first fence, then hits his stride. Fast and clean, he shaves whole seconds off Margie's best time and clinches the win.


  1. The giant beer bottles are sooo uppercrust. :-)

  2. Todd wants to know if they only turn left and where the NASCAR jump is?
