Best of JN: Beezie Madden Wins $1 Million Dollar Grand Prix at HITS Ocala

Because when you’re Beezie, winning one Grand Prix just isn’t enough…

On Saturday, March 24th Beezie Madden was the last to go out of five who were clear for the jump off in the $205,000 CaptiveOne CSI4* Grand Prix at WEF. The challenging track had tested many of the riders entered in the class, but Beezie and her mount Breitling LS laid down two beautiful rounds to bring home the hardware.

As if one Grand Prix in a weekend isn’t tasking enough, Beezie was also set to contend the Great American $1 Million Grand Prix Sunday afternoon at HITS Ocala aboard Abigail Wexner’s Coach. The venue was overflowing with spectators, eager to see who of the 43 riders would take home the big purse. When seats filled up, fans lined the grass bank just to get a glimpse of the action.

The competition was hot all day long with riders such as Lauren Hough, Lillie Keenan, Daniel Bluman, and Cian O’Connor all aiming to take home the top spot on the podium. It was apparent from the cheers, however, as Beezie and Coach entered the ring that the duo was definitely a fan favorite. All fell silent as they maneuvered their way around Alan Wade’s jump off course with style and ease.

As they sailed over the last jump, the crowd went wild! No one could top Beezie’s blazing fast, yet elegantly executed, jump off time of 44.479 seconds which was a whole two seconds faster than the previous leader.

The 2nd place spot went to Lillie Keenan on her longtime mount Super Sox and Charlie Jayne rounded out the top three aboard Tou La Moon.
