A Strong Dollar Claims Title at Woodbury



     A Strong Dollar and Link Webb added their name to the leaderboard for the World Grand Championship winning the Woodbury Horse Show last night.  This was their first show of the year for owner Curtice McCloy and their 23rd  win in 32 outings during their career, a winning percentage of 72%.

     Joe Cotten and Allison Lafferty showed this horse as a two-year-old in open and amateur competition winning 8 blues, 1 reserve and 3 third place ribbons.  Allison won 2 thirds at the Celebration in amateur competition and Joe won one of the Two-Year-Old Stallion preliminaries.

     After winning the Three-Year-Old Classic at the Trainers Show with Joe, Link took over the reins and won four more times as the horse finished the season undefeated.  Link won a Three-Year-Old Stallion preliminary but did not show in the championship.

     As a four-year-old, A Strong Dollar won 4 times and was reserve in both the Junior Stallion preliminary and Junior Championship at the Celebration.   Last year in their first season of open competition, Link and his horse won 5 blues, 2 reserves and 1 fourth place ribbon.  At the Celebration, they were second in an aged stallion preliminary and fourth in the World Grand Championship.

     Their win at Woodbury repeats their win at this show as a three-year-old and gives them a strong start in their bid to win a World Grand Championship.
