It’s been a moment since we’ve heard an update on Jon Holling‘s newest OTTB prospect, the now 6-year-old gelding Ragtime Rebel (Union Rags X A.P. Elegance, by A.P. Indy) that he found through the Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center. Rebel enjoyed a nice off-season vacation after his Training level debut in November and has come out swinging this season with a great Training level run at Ocala Winter I H.T. last weekend.
In Jon’s latest YouTube vlog, he analyzes the footage from this latest outing, from a somewhat spooky dressage test, to a foot-perfect show jump round, to a workmanlike cross country performance. The pair finished double clear in both jumping phases to finish on their dressage score for 7th place in their division. We’re looking forward to seeing Jon and Rebel out and about this season!
