Will Simpson Claims Victory with Chacco P in the $20,000 Interactive Mortgage Horses 10 & Under Futurity Final

San Juan Capistrano, CA - Presenting some of the West Coast's brightest up and coming equine stars this week and next, the Blenheim Fall Tournament hosted the $20,000 Interactive Mortgage Horses 10 & Under Futurity Final on Friday afternoon. With $65,000 in total prize money offered in the 2017 Futurity Series, the program offered a stepping stone for horses headed to the grand prix ring. Will Simpson's Chacco P is certainly one of those potential stars, as one of only two clean in the Final, and the only double clean effort, he claimed victory aboard his new eight-year-old mount.

The Guilherme Jorge designed course proved to be a challenge for the twenty-two entries, with only Simpson and second place finisher Michelle Parker aboard her homebred CCF Caramel going clean in the first round.

Savannah Jenkins rode Georgy Maskrey-Segesman's Covalsky clean over the fifteen effort track, but exceeded the time allowed for three time faults and a third place finish. Six riders completed the course with just a single rail. The quickest of those by over two seconds was young professional Laura Ware on her Ursina du Perchet, whose early rail but fast time put her fourth.

Simpson noted, "The course was very nice for the young horses. The jump-off was a bit bigger toward the end, but the course was very inviting. Guilherme is one of the most experienced and horseman-like course designers. My horses always are trained by his courses and are always better by the end of the class."

Simpson, who recently qualified by placing in the last Interactive Mortgage Horses 10 & Under Futurity class during Showpark Summer Classic, then spoke of his plans for the upcoming indoor season. "This is only my second show with Chacco P, but I feel like I know him already. I came down for the day to show him in these Finals. It was a great way to get to know him before we head indoors for the fall circuit. He is a very balanced and talented horse and I feel very comfortable with him. I'm thrilled with today."

Blenheim EquiSports is grateful for the innovative approach and generosity that Interactive Mortgage and the DeLong family has shown over the years. After coming on board as the title sponsor of the Futurity Series in 2013, Gregg and Evette DeLong of Interactive Mortgage have supported young horses through this program. Two years ago they added young riders with the Interactive Mortgage U25 Series, which has its own final offering $25,000 in prize money at The Las Vegas National. This will also be their second year as the presenting sponsor for the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Las Vegas. DeLong noted that he would like to see some of the horses and riders who are winning classes and finals in the two Interactive Mortgage series go on to participate in future FEI events and championships.
