and Jazzman returned to Del Mar with something to prove: that they were both
back and better than ever! The five judges for the CDI were somewhat erratic
in their scoring and Jazz was placed fourth in the Grand Prix. In the Grand
Prix Freestyle at night, under the lights, Jazz once again lit up for the
cheering fans and produced an energetic, mistake free freestyle that the crowd
clearly loved. Two of the judges placed him first, but the other three preferred
Michael Barisone and Neruda, so Jazz had to settle for second overall.
Leah Forrest and Winnica continued their winning ways, stepping up to first level. Leah won several classes, again with scores into the seventies. She won the first level amateur stake class and took home the reserve amateur high point award.
