There was a tough group of competitors in the 5/6-Year-Old Amateur, but Hilary Watson and Shady Lil CD (High Brow CD x Shady Lil Aristocrat x Smart Aristocrat) proved they deserved a spot on top.
The solid duo earned a 225 and bested the rest of the field by an impressive 6 points. Watson and her 6-year-old mare earned $3,008 for the win and an additional $1,323 for the Senior title, as well.
The success in Arbuckle elevated Watson’s lifetime earnings to nearly $145,000, and the mare now has an Equi-Stat record of $79,114.
Peter Parker and No Time For A Miss (One Time Pepto x Mereyda x Dual Rey) marked a 219 and earned the Reserve Championship and a check of $2,531.
