Lucy Matz of Coatesville rode her mother's Wise Guy to victory in the $2,500 Pony Jumper bonus point class Sunday at the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. She also took the Pony Jumper Championship.

Matz is the daughter of Michael Matz, the trainer of Barbaro and many successful thoroughbreds. Her mother Dorothy (D.D.) was also a top show-jumping rider.

Lucy Matz also was awarded the Pony Jumper Style Award.

The good turns she made in the jump-off gave her the win. She rode a clean round in 35.934 seconds to beat Nicole Kehrli on Northwind's Opus, who was clean in 37.211.

"Wise Guy is really fun; he likes to go fast," said Matz, who was riding at Devon for the first time. "I learned how to make good turns [in the jump-off] by watching videos of Mom and Dad. And from my trainer, Lisa Jacquin."

"I'm thrilled for her," said Matz's mother. "She had a tough year in the beginning, but she stuck with it, and she really clicked with Lisa."

Tucker Johnson of Hobe Sound, Fla., won the Championship Drive-off of the Carriage Please Drive with his four-in-hand team put to a Brewster Private Road Coach.

Johnson said he showed a tandem at Devon in the '80s, but this is his first time showing here since then and his first with a four-in-hand.

Johnson, who has retired from driving competitively and drives only for pleasure now, said he is looking forward to competing in the coaching competitions at Devon, Monday through Friday.
