Photo ©ESI Photography.Todd Minikus knows when the likes of McLain Ward, Ronan McGuigan and Laura Chapot follow him in a jump-off, winning will be no easy feat. He proved twice-over, however, that while a fight against some of the greats is a challenge, he is up to the task. Minikus bested a star-studded order on Sunday to collect first with Arino Du Rouet, as well as second and sixth in the $50,000 Horze Equestrian Grand Prix presented by Zoetis at HITS Saugerties. With 13 jumping efforts, Florencio Hernandez's (Mexico City, Mexico) built a course that served dual purposes – welcoming a field of both green and experienced horses. "For that mix, it was the perfect course," said Minikus.
