Update: Strong finish for Hillary Dobbs at Washington International Horse Show
It was a successful week, all said and done, for Hillary Dobbs at the Washington International Horse Show. Neither the daughter of ex-CNN commentator Lou Dobbs nor her fellow celeb-equestrienne Georgina Bloomberg (daughter of N.Y.C. Mayor Mike) placed in the big-money ranks of Thursday night's $30,000 open jumper class at Verizon Center, reports our colleague T. Rees Shapiro. But Dobbs and her horse, Marengo, placed second that same night for a $4,000 prize in the "gambler's choice" competition, which (fun!) involved wearing costumes. Dobbs dressed as the Flash; Bloomberg, as a nun, won $600 in ninth place. Bloomberg won a couple other three-digit prizes last week, but Dobbs (at 22, the youngest rider to win $1 million on the circuit) scooped up $1,200 in a Friday competition -- and then another $15,000 on Saturday for winning the pair relay with Shane Sweetnam.
