Tracy Fenney and MTM Apple are Golden at Tryon Fall 3 with $36,000 Horseware Ireland Welcome Stake and $5,000 Power & Speed Stake CSI2* Victories – partly from press release.

Mill Spring, NC – October 3, 2019 – Tracy Fenney (USA) and MTM Apple kicked off Tryon Fall 3 with two back-to-back FEI wins, claiming Thursday’s $36,000 Horseware Ireland Welcome Stake CSI 2* on a jump-off time of 39.032 seconds.


Fenney shared that the 2011 Danish Warmblood mare (Favorit Ask x Willemoes) owned by MTM Farm has been improving with every round in the ring: “She was great, even better than yesterday. It was a hard 1.45m, but it was good to get her in the ring and get her in gear.”


Course designer Peter Grant (CAN) hosted 56 entries in the first round of competition, with 22 horse-and-rider pairs qualifying to attempt the short course. After being knocked out of the lead on her other mount, Fenney was determined to get back in the lead with MTM Apple. “She’s really fast and she’s super straightforward. I mean, from one to two she did that like a gem, and I was so impressed with her.”


“She’s fairly new, so that’s why I showed her today,” Fenney said of the 2011 Danish Warmblood mare owned by MTM Farm. “She’s very straightforward and has a very good attitude about what she does. I was a little bit worried because it’s so hot this week, so I wasn’t sure if I should show her today, but because she’s so new we decided to show her in a class. I love her; she felt great.”

Fenney and the mare have been building their relationship over the past year, she explained. “We imported her last year and we have been doing little things and some Grands Prix. Every time we show her, she gets better and better. 



The breeding of MTM Apple

When looking closer at the origins of this mare it came out that she is an 8-year-old DWB mare. Her original name was Kong’s Hokus Pokus, bred in Denmark by master rider Hans Ley, Mariager, and she is by Favorit Ask out of the gold medal mare Kong’s Whoopsie by Willemoes/Candaletto. As Hans Ley also bred the great-granddam of MTM Apple it is quite an amazing achievement for a breeder.

Hans himself had competed MTM Apple (aka Kong’s Hokus Pokus) back in Denmark in 2017 and in 2018 Rikke Haastrup competed her in Arezzo, Italy. With both riders the mare had competed up to 135 cm.
