Less than 24 hours after taking home top honors in the $36,600 Suncast Welcome Stake CSI4*-W, Emily Moffitt (GBR) and Tipsy du Terral (Toulon x Quat'sous) led a second straight victory gallop.

This time, they won the $36,600 NetJets Speed Challenge, topping a field of 28 international entries with a winning time of 60.18 seconds. 

"Yesterday, I mentioned that everything came up perfectly, and I guess today, the same happened—I would even say better," Moffitt said.

Remarkably, second-place finishers Erynn Ballard (CAN) and Judge Hof ter Zeedycke (Winningmood x Toulon) also repeated their result from the Welcome. This time around, their time was 61.17 seconds. Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA) and Venice Beach (Voltaire x Escudo I) finished third with a time of 62.19 seconds.

Jumping in the first half of the order, Moffitt and her mount were able to maintain their lead through 17 rounds. With a comfortable margin of victory of nearly a second, the 21-year-old attributed the win to stride and smoothness.

"The course was obviously quite suited to me and Tipsy," Moffitt said. "I started with a good pace and kept it the whole way around. Everything showed up nicely, and I never had to take a pull. That’s why we were so quick.

"She has a monster stride, so I just went for it," she added.

Moffitt has a weekend of rest planned for her horse. "She’s been great, so we’re actually going to take her home," she said. "She’s been so good. We’re going to give her a nice reward, take her home early and let her have lots of carrots!
