When the Palm Beach Masters Series hosts its annual collection of international events, the world’s best riders congregate at Deeridge Farms for a winter of unforgettable competition.
Each year, Deeridge Farms looks forward to welcoming its athletes back with resumes that are even bigger than when they last visited Wellington. As the 2020 Palm Beach Masters Series approaches, we’ll be sharing some of the biggest results from Series riders at international events worldwide—and what a few weeks it’s been.
The Palm Beach Masters Series congratulates Beezie Madden on her tremendous victories in both the $3,000,000 CSI5* CP ‘International’ Grand Prix in Calgary (CAN) and the CSI4*-W Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ New York.
In New York, Madden rode the 8-year-old Garant to victory in the gelding’s World Cup debut. The flashy chestnut is undoubtedly a rising star; he made one of his first outings of the year at the Palm Beach Masters Series in the Platinum Championship Tour.
In Calgary, Madden and the spectacular Darry Lou defeated a stellar international cast and did not touch a single pole over two 1.70m rounds of jumping. Their final score was 1, with a single time fault incurred in the second round.
