Come along for the ride as I travel to Annali Farms in Antioch for the 4th Annual Chicago Hunter Derby sponsored by Canadian National. This event, hosted by Chicago Equestrians for a Cause (and founded by Margaret Benjamin), benefitted the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation and the United States Hunter Jumper Association Foundation.
Watch the excitement and see the skills of both horses and riders as they compete for a $50,000 purse on a former Steeplechase course at Annali Farms, owned by Rush and Caroline Weeden.
Congrats to all who participated including sponsors Chicago Magazine, Gene & Georgetti's Restaurant, Lake Forest Sports Cars, Trabert & Hoeffer, Porsche, Ralph Lauren, Brody Robertson Show Jumps and Chef Paul Catering. Special congrats to event winner, Jennifer Alfano, and her magnificent Jersey Boy!
It was a beautiful "Day in the Country".....Watch "Candid Candace Chicago", and see what I mean!
