Margie Goldstein Engle and her longtime partner Indigo won the FEI $35,000 Amalaya Investments 1.45 M Welcome, the premier event of Friday at the Lexington International CSI 2*, part of the Split Rock Jumping Tour 2018.

A field of 57 horses and riders tried to tackle the technical and demanding course, with only seven making it clear to the jump off.

Engle was one of the earlier riders in the ring with the 18-year-old Indigo, and showed everyone how to do it, turning in their signature fault free performance. In the jump off round, the pair again executed fault free in a time of 38.92 seconds.

Jack Hardin Towel and Carlo placed second with two penalty free rounds in a time of 40.01 seconds. Third place went to Hector Florentino, who rides under the flag of the Dominican Republic, and Venus, also penalty free and stopping the clock in 41.32 seconds.

"Indigo is amazing," said Engle after the win. "Every time he goes in the ring it is just a plus and has been for the last couple of years. He feels like he did when he was eight years old. He was so enthusiastic coming down to the ring he was literally prancing. He just loves it. Loves going in the ring and loves being competitive."
