"Profeta de Besilu Unanimous Choice as Champion. Owner Leaves Crutches to Win! Grand Champion was
Profeta de Besilu, ridden by Kimberly Palacio. Profeta, the crowd favorite, and multiple-times World and National
Classic Fino Champion, was the unanimous first place finisher in the most physically challenging fino event yet staged.
Profeta earned $4,000 plus an original oil painting by the acclaimed Colombian artist, Doris Ramos. Profeta’s earnings in this one
event were the most ever earned by an American Paso Fino Horse. Profeta’s owneralso received a beautiful glass trophy.
 It was a dramatic win for Kimberly who was in crutches prior to the event."
