WAYNE, Illinois, Aug. 27–Wakeup and Emily Wagner won the six-year-old preliminary test at the U.S. Young Horse Championships Friday hoping to add to the success of 2010 when her home-bred black stallion took them to the world championships at Verden.

The 23-year-old college student of La Cygne, Kansas, said that Wakeup by Wagnis out of a Macho mare has made “the big jump” to six-year-old competition from the five-year-olds to become a “super young horse we want to make it to the Grand Prix.”

The three-judge panel of Janet Foy and 5-star jurists Gary Rockwell and Anne Gribbons, awarded the pair 8.88, including 9.2 for the walk, 8.8 for the canter and 8.5 for the trot and described “the whole package as very wonderful.”

Emily trains with her mother and Lilo Fore and said that when she graduates from college in December she plans to train with Lilo at Santa Rose, California, and see where it takes the pair.

Wakeup’s sire was Emily’s Young Rider horse.

“It’s so cool because i know his whole family, his brothers and half-brothers,” she said.

The huge moving Aesthete was ridden by Silva Martin of Cochranville, Pennsylvania, to second place with 8.62, including 8.9 for the trot, 7.5 for the walk and 8.8 for the canter, 8.9 for submission and 9.0 for general impression.

Aesthete was the U.S. four-year-old champion and was placed third as a five-year-old ridden by Karen Monks Reilly.

Bon Chance ridden by Caroline Roffman of Wellington was third with 8.52, including 8.9 for trot, 9 for walk and 8.5 for canter. Bon Chance was the five-year-old champion in 2010 ridden by Caroline.

One of the most watched six-year-olds was Riccidoff, a Hanoverian gelding (Riccione x Don Davidoff x Sandro Hit) owned by Elizabeth Juliano of Gates Mills, Ohio. Betsy paid €680,000 (US$900,000) at the Performance Sales International auction last December.

Riccidoff and George scored 8.0 and fifth place.
