Five-star eventer Elisa Wallace has a new upper-level partner in her string. Introducing Let It Be Lee, a 12-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Bernstein X Sugaree, by Broad Brush) owned by Donna Biggs and Rosemarie Spillane. “Lee” raced under his Jockey Club name Leerider, making 12 career starts and earning almost $13,000 before coming off the track in 2011, and has previous eventing experience with Kyle Carter who produced him up to the Intermediate/ CCI3* level.
After first trying out Lee in December, the new team got their first run together under their belts with an outing at the Preliminary level at Three Lakes Winter I H.T. before stepping up to Intermediate at Rocking Horse Winter II where they finished in 10th place on a score of 50.4. Elisa shared this video of their first Intermediate together and walks us through each phase and how she’s working on building a relationship with her new partner. Good luck Elisa and Lee — we can’t wait to see you out and about more this season!
