Susan Church, of Saturday Night Farms, and owner of the Anglo-Trakhener stallion Silver Twist, reports a rising young star by Silver Twist: 

Granite schooling
Granite (aka Olde Amerikana) is a 2010 gelding out of Akwa by Grannus. He was bred by Diane Denby, and was raised, trained and shown by Wendy Smith until April, 2018. Granite has been quite successful despite his owner's professional schedule, with wins in the jumpers on the AAA circuit and at WEF. His new owner is Julie Coles, who won her first class with him at WEF.

Silver Twist is a 1999 stallion by Abdullah out of a Good Twist xx mare. Abdullah was bred in Canada and earned individual Silver in the 1984 Olympic Games and was inducted into the Showjumping Hall of Fame. Good Twist (sire of Gem Twist) was an incredible show jumping competitor and sire as well, giving Silver Twist an enviable pedigree on both sides.
