With a lightning-fast time, Karl Cook and Banba win the GGT Grand Prix at Del Mar.

October 28, 2013--Wrapping up the very last day of the Del Mar International Horse Show, there was still plenty of excitement to be had as the GGT Footing Grand Prix Series Final got underway. Sixty-five horse and rider pairs entered this class to battle it out for top honors today, and sixteen made it to the jump off. Out of those sixteen, we saw 7 impressive double clear rounds. In the end, Karl Cook and Banba, owned by Signe Ostby, set forth a lightning-fast time, holding off Will Simpson and Acorina to take the blue. To conclude results of the GGT Footing Series Final:? Karl Cook received the "Marco" Perpetual Trophy, awarded to the leading open jumper rider. Lane Clarke is the winner of the GGT Series, earning $19,000 in prize money; Susan Artes is the second place GGT Series finisher with $12,000 in prize money and Susan Hutchinson earns 3rd place and $4,000 in prize money.
