Non-Pro Classic Challenge Reserve Champion WR Jillaroo
Non-Pro Classic Challenge 1st Go
Daily Cutter – October 30th, 2013
Jessica Gonsalves trailed behind Theresa by just a half point with her 220.5 riding WR Jillaroo (WR This Cats Smart X Oaks Smart Peach).
Jessica grew up in Ojai, California and moved to Paso Robles when she was a senior in high school.
She met trainer/husband Gary Gonsalves while he was riding horses for her parents, Sue and George Hearst. The couple moved in 2005 and relocated in Millsap, Texas.
Jessica is quite fond of WR Jillaroo calling the mare her “third child.” Her real children are Garrett (15), who plays football, and Gentry (12), who rides horses.
Jessica feels Jillaroo is “one of the most fun horses I’ve ever ridden because she’s so cowy and has a big stop.”
