Liz Callar photoFormer steeplechase star Sur La Tete had nothing to prove at the Virginia Field Hunter Championships, held October 19, 2015 at Wind Fields Farm in Aldie, Va. The son of Sky Classic already has six Grade 1 stakes victories on his resume. Additionally, the three time Eclipse Award finalist retired as the National Steeplechase Association's fourth-leading lifetime earner. Yet, the now 16 year old former steeplechase star and his trainer, Orange County Hounds' Jt-MFH Neil Morris, succeeded in adding yet another accolade to an already sterling performance record by taking the 2015 Virginia Field Hunter Championship.
Upon the conclusion of the four phase competition (which included best turned out, an under saddle class, and mock hunt, followed by an individual jumping test for the eight finalists), judges Betty Oare and Charlie Evaskov awarded Morris and Sur La Tete with the top call.
