Madden and Authentic Capture $200,000 Budweiser American Invitational at Tampa
Tampa, Fl – April 2 – In the only two horse jump-off in the thirty three year history of the Budweiser American Invitational, Olympic Silver Medalist Beezie Madden aboard her Athens partner, Authentic, topped Jeffery Welles and Armani for the victory at Raymond James Stadium on Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.

Madden followed Welles into the arena and to the delight of 17,800 cheering fans on hand, toured the short course without penalty and picked up a first place check of $60,000. Welles picked up $44,000 for his efforts.
A complete report will follow in the morning from Phelps Media Group in Tampa, Florida.
