Cross Creek West pulled into Tucson late Monday night – ready to compete during weeks 4, 5 and 6 of the Arizona Winter Circuit with a string of talented young jumpers. Click HERE to view a video of Tocayo competing in Level 5 jumpers. Tocayo is a 7 year old Dutch gelding purchased in Mexico last fall. He is very careful and quick – definitely an upcoming talent. He was quite impressed today and scored a double-clean round in his first class of the circuit.  Also today Cross Creek’s latest acquisition made his American debut in the Level 7 jumpers, again with a double-clean round.  Socrates, a big grey gelding just imported from Belgium, is a scopey contender with tons of ability. More later as we get into the swing of the circuit – at least the sun is shining and the rainy weather stayed behind in California!
