Megan Jordan, on Lolita, owned by Margie Grass, won the $25,000 Grand Prix, out of 21 riders. Shelley Campf, on Greyscale, owned by Maggie Dennis, won the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. Go Shorty, ridden by Cheryl Keith for owner Catherine Rankin, took the blue ribbon in the $2,500 Bunny Coffin National Hunter Derby.
