Bloomberg and her horse South Street, came first in Open Jumper 1.40 meter classes. The pair were the fastest of 17 clear rounds out of the field of 45 to win Section A in a time of 54.582 seconds. We’re not entirely sure what that means, but we do know she won!

“It’s always special to win at the Hampton Classic. It’s an amazing horse show so it’s nice to start it off on a good note and give me confidence for the rest of the week,” said Bloomberg in a press release. “It was a great course that really used the ring. This horse goes faster than anyone else without even trying, so my plan was to let her go and try to get a good ribbon.”

Her dad meanwhile, has been busy snapping up Upper East Side townhouses.
