Congratulations are in order for Alex Tett who acquired the ride on Fernhill Cubalawn. Previously piloted by Phillip Dutton, “Cuba” was named to the 2016 U.S. Olympic team, but was substituted off the team due to a mild injury weeks before the competition. Now Cuba may get another chance with Alex, who aims to represent Zimbabwe at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Good luck to this new partnership!
