By DARYL GADBOW of the Missoulian

Ovando rancher Suzanne Hayes and Quincy, her palomino gelding, have had a setback while training in Florida for the World Endurance Championship horse race scheduled for Jan. 27 in Dubai of the United Arab Emirates.

Hayes and Quincy - whose official name is actually Tezero's Gold - traveled to Florida in late November as part of the nine horse/rider United States team training for the grueling 100-mile race in the Dubai desert.

Six of the teams will be selected to represent the United States in the race. Three teams will be alternates. Hayes and Quincy went into training in Florida ranked among the top six horse/rider tandems.
