Covert-Lawrence had a successful two weeks of competition at the Pépinière and St-Lazare Horse Shows held in her hometown of St. Lazare, QC. Riding The Eastwood Group’s Utan, an eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding sired by Burggraaf, Covert-Lawrence topped a 26-horse starting field to win the $25,000 Grand Prix of St. Lazare on May 30. One week earlier, the pair placed second in the $10,000 Henry Equestrian Insurance Brokers Grand Prix.
“This was Utan’s first Grand Prix victory,” said Covert-Lawrence who imported the horse exactly one year earlier from Europe with the help of Belgian-based business partner, Koen Aerts. “Utan is one of the most talented horses I have ever ridden, and with this first victory, he has confirmed himself as a Grand Prix contender.”
