Buddy Brown took Aramis cleanly over eight jump-off fences in 46.611 seconds to win the ninth annual Valley Forge Military Academy Grand Prix yesterday on the school's grounds in Wayne.
Aramis earned $9,000 from the $30,000 purse for owner Derby Hill Farm. Brown, from Brownsville, R.I., is a former member of the U.S. equestrian team. Second place went to Liran, ridden by Michael Matz of Collegeville.
Twelve horses in the starting field of 28 made it to the jump-off by vaulting cleanly over 17 high fences, including a water jump.
