Plot twist: after a disappointing — and wet — end to their strike at winning the Fair Hill International CCI4*-L, Mara DePuy set Congo Brazzaville C out to the field to enjoy a holiday, but turns out he wasn’t quite finished. After evaluation, her team has decided he’s game for the upcoming four-star at Ocala Jockey Club. I smell redemption.
From Mara: “After a disappointing ending to what was one of our best cross country rounds at Fair Hill. Congo was turned out for his holiday, and made it very clear that he didn’t want his season to end on that note. After seeing Congo’s behavior, consulting with our team, and a cross country school with Phillip Dutton, there is a late addition to the fall calendar. Mara and Congo will head to Ocala to contest the CCI4* at the Jockey Club.”
