Marilyn Little Wins Friday Feature at 33rd Annual Lake Placid Horse Show

Lake Placid, NY – June 28, 2002 –Marilyn Little of Frederick, MD rode Hertel Landman to victory in the $10,000 Turtle Lane Farm Jump-off Friday at the 33rd annual Lake Placid Horse Show.

Little was one of seven entries among the 20 starters to qualify for the jump-off round by riding penalty-free over the 14-jump first-round course at the North Elba Showgrounds. Christine Tribble of Suffield, CT took an early lead in the jump-off when she rode After Eight to a fault-free round, finishing the seven-jump tiebreaker course in 41.236 seconds.

Little, who has won the BET On Jazz U.S. Equestrian Team Show Jumping Talent Derby a record four times, was the sixth to return for the tiebreaker and she moved Tribble out of the lead with a clean ride in 38.965 seconds. The last entry, U.S. Equestrian Team veteran Mark Leone of Franklin Lakes, NJ, also finished fault-free, but while his time of 39.661 seconds on Pinkata De Longpre moved him ahead of Tribble, it left him seven tenths of a second behind Little in second place.
