Paul Drake and Alanti won their first Grand Prix on Feb 23, 2008 with a qualifying score for the Championships!
The show management honored Paul with a bottle of Champagne announcing that less than one percent of all dressage riders make it to the Grand Prix.
This Dynamite Hanoverian mare is owned by Charis Pond of Riverside, California and they are trained by Dynamite Bronze Director Susan Derr Drake (Paul's wife!) of Santa Ynez, CA.
