Dragonfly wins Asheville



Jimmy McConnell is up to his old tricks as he guided Dragonfly to the winners circle in the Championship Class at Asheville last night.  Last week this team placed reserve in the Championship Class at The International and are quickly making a name for themselves for the aged division next year.

This horse has been shown in professional ranks as a two, three and four-year-old by Jimmy; was shown to two blues in four-year-old amateur competition this season by Mary Medina and has shown in the aged division twice since the Celebration  with a blue and a reserve to his credit.  He is owned by Bob and Mary Medina and trained by Formac Stables.

During his career, he has been shown 28 times with 13 blues, 7 reserves and 3 third place ties.  He won a division of the Two-Year- Old Stallion Class at the 2002 Celebration and was fourth in the Championship.  This year he was reserve in Section A of the Celebration's Four-Year-Old Stallion Class and was third in the Junior Stake.

It will be interesting to see what division he competes in next year, amateur or open.

 

Dragonfly is owned by Bob and Mary Medina
