Greg Crolick Earns ‘Top Calls’ During Tournament of Champions in Tampa

Tampa, FL – April 2, 2013 – The second leg of Stadium Jumping’s Tampa Equestrian Series, the Tournament of Champions, attracts some of the top names in the hunter industry from around the country – among them, Michigan native Greg Crolick.

As the five-days of ‘AA’ hunter competition got underway this morning at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center, Crolick, of Top Call Farm, rode to multiple blue ribbons in the High Performance and Green Hunter divisions.

Course designer Robert McCune set a flowing first round course in the Main Hunter Ring that opened over a single oxer off the right lead, around to bending line away from the in-gate, then on to an outside line in front of the judges, a single oxer across the diagonal and ending over a vertical-oxer in and out along the far side of the ring.  

Crolick’s first mount, Carson, owned by Orchard Lake Farms, LLC., jumped the course with ease and came back to do the same in the handy round in the High Performance Hunter division.

“He definitely takes a little bit of a physical ride. You have to kind of use old school leg-to-hand and ride him around that way. He’s quite fun, and a lot of fun to jump,” Crolick explained.

Crolick and Carson finished second over the first course of the High Performance behind Trendy, owned by Caroline Kellogg and shown by Kate Conover, and the pair returned to win the blue ribbon in the handy class.

“He felt really good. He always comes out for the handy class and tries a little bit harder for the handy,” Crolick shared.

Crolick returned to lead the jog in all three of the Green Working Hunter classes with Top Call Farm’s Grey Street. The first year green hunter was just imported earlier in the year and has already seen great success in both Ocala, FL and Tampa with Crolick at the reins.

Grey Street’s fluent jump, movement between the fences and handiness are what won him the blue ribbon in both the first course and the handy course of the Green Hunters, and his lofty, floating stride ensured the blue ribbon in the under saddle class, making three in a row for the grey horse. 

Also earning multiple blue ribbons were Adrienne Iverson and Maximus in the Green Conformation Hunter division. Iverson and Maximus, owned and bred by Redfield Farm, were champions of the division in last week’s Tampa Bay Classic, and they are leading the way for a repeat this week with blue ribbons in both of the over fences classes.

All three of the professional hunter divisions will conclude tomorrow as the champions are named in the Main Hunter Ring. In addition to the professional classes, Stadium Jumping’s Tournament of Champions features a vast array of hunter classes for the amateur, junior and child alike.
