Sired by Ulior des Isles and out of a Narcos II dam, Baron was imported by owner Mark Hayes in January of 2006 and finished the season as the Ontario Six-Year-Old Champion.“Baron is a brave and careful horse, and he’s been jumping a lot of clear rounds,” noted Hayes, who operates Kestral Farms and owns several horses that have proven to be successful in the Canadian Young Horse Jumper Development Series. “The sponsorship is there to support the Series, and I hope that it continues to progress.”Moffatt and Hayes also teamed up to take second place with Atlanta van de Padenborre, a seven-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding by Ahorn Z out of a Quidam de Revel dam. Moffatt and Atlanta van de Padenborre were also clear in the jump-off, but in a slower time to place second.Third place went to Frankie Chesler-Ortiz of Orangeville, ON, and Aslan, the only other combination to advance to the jump-off. A seven-year-old chestnut Dutch Warmblood gelding, Aslan is by Kigali and out of a Le Mexico dam.While Moffatt dominated the top two spots in the Seven and Eight-Year-Old Division, Elliott Stone did the same in the Six-Year-Old Division. A total of nine horse-rider combinations advanced to the jump-off with Stone of Midland, ON, guiding Ursiena, his Dutch Warmblood by Lancelot, to the winning time of 33.45 seconds. Stable mate Untouchable, a Dutch Warmblood by Karandasj, placed second with a time of 34.13 seconds.Taking third place with a double clear round in a time of 35.75 seconds was Accabello, a German-bred by Accarat owned by Paige and Gord Munro and ridden by Ben Murphy.The Canadian-bred GH Fortune’s Son took top honours in the Five-Year-Old Division with rider Carly Campbell Coooper of Elora, ON.
