Thornewood Farm competed with four horses at the 2016 Egyptian Event, held in Lexington, Kentucky from June 7th through the 11th . The exquisite Luna Thee Cielo (Thee Desperado x Celeste TF) bred by Joe Piccolo and now owned by Kathleen Petrelli, was named the Silver Champion Senior Mare and Most Classic Head Winner of the show. Earlier in the week, Luna Thee Cielo had been judged Champion in the 4 & 5-year old mare class. It was an exciting win as this particular mare electrified the audience with her brilliance, overabundance of Arabian horse type and charisma. Another Thornewood Mare, the tall, statuesque and elegant Jamila TF (*Mishaal HP x Skyy), bred by Lisa Cifrese and owned by Mary Anne Applegate, was named the Champion 3 year old filly. With Mary Anne's daughter, Georgia Applegate, she was also named the unanimous winner of the Amateur to handle 3 and over fillies. Sahra Rose, an Alixir daughter out of the Thornewood Farm bred, The Sultry Rose TF, earned a top five in a very competitive 2-year old filly class. Sahra Rose is owned by Patty Paige. Ruby Star MSA (The Sequel RCA x Misty Star MSA) stole the show with her exciting entrance and carved her place as a top five yearling filly. Ruby Star is bred and owned by Emily Schmidt, who also won the Volunteer of the Year Award from The Pyramid Society.
