Rhum Iv Wins Jumping Event

Posted: May 17, 1993

Michael Matz and Rhum IV soared fault-free over eight jumpoff fences to beat Anne Kursinski and Top Seed in the $30,000 St. Christopher's Hospital for Children Grand Prix yesterday at the Radnor Hunt Club.

Matz, of Collegeville, reined his horse over the fences on a twisting course in light rainfall in 38.038 seconds. Kursinski, a two-time Olympian, raced Top Seed faultlessly home in 38.105 seconds for owner Hilary Boone of Lexington, Ky. Matz earned a $9,000 first prize for Fitz Eugene Dixon Jr. of Lafayette Hill.

Lisa Jacquin withdrew Gigolo after he twice refused a combination jump in the first round.
