Goliath and Addison Reed Win the $15,000 Welcome

History repeated itself during the Lexington Spring Encore when Addison Reed rode Reed Training & Sales’ Goliath to the win in the $15,000 Welcome, just beating out Marylisa Leffler and Rolling Acres’ ZaZa Z.

The course was designed by Ken Krome and the second-round time was set at 48 seconds. Of the eighteen horse and rider teams, eleven advanced to a second-round opportunity.

David Matisz and his own Nero Uno were first in the order of go and posted a clear second round in 40.015 seconds, which set the new time to beat.

Leffler and Zaza Z were the next horse and rider to post a clear second round in a time of 35.583 seconds and took the lead.

That lead was short-lived when Reed and Goliath followed in the order, posting a clear second round in 34.173 seconds.
