Taylor Land is only in Kentucky for a few short days, but while here, she is enjoying the beautiful weather and making magic aboard Merlin. Land and Merlin were one of only two duos to go double clear in the Junior/Amateur-Owner High Jumpers before they earned the win today at the Kentucky Summer Classic. In the Junior/Amateur-Owner Medium Jumpers, Jennifer Santana and Kendall were fast and faultless to win the class in the Rolex Stadium at the Kentucky Horse Park. 

Course designer Marina Azevedo of Brazil set a course that presented riders with an oxer-vertical double combination, a vertical-oxer-vertical triple combination and an open water option.

Land and Merlin were the first pair to go clear over the first round track, and they would prove to be one of only two pairs to do so. Following their initial ride, Land and Merlin immediately advanced to the jump-off and made it through the seven obstacle short course in a clear time of 32.137 seconds.

“Merlin is so fast. You just think about where you want to make turns, and he’s already going. He’s super quick. His turning ability is unbelievable,” mentioned Land.

Venezuelan rider Pablo Barrios is proving to be unstoppable with his talented young mare Zara Leandra. With a speedy double clear during tonight’s jump-off, the duo won their third $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic. Only four horses advanced to the tiebreaker in the Rolex Stadium during the Kentucky Summer Classic, and Aaron Vale was the only other rider to leave all the fences intact a second time to capture the second place prize with Palm Sunday, while Ireland’s Richie Moloney and Alsvid placed third. 

Marina Azevedo of Brazil set a very technical track for tonight’s 51 starters, which only yielded four clear entries. It included an open water, an oxer-vertical double combination, a vertical-oxer-vertical triple combination and a very technical bending line at the end to a skinny set just past the gate. A short time allowed also had four riders finishing with only time faults to their name.

AaronAlthough there were grey skies in the area for the second day of the Kentucky Summer Classic, the weather did not dampen the competition in the Rolex Stadium. Both the 1.40m and 1.35m Open Jumper classes were determined by just fractions of a second.  As the last in the class, Aaron Vale had the draw on his side as he bested Juan Pablo Gaspar and Shamrock with H&M Cisco in the 1.40m Open Jumpers. In the 1.35m Open Jumpers, Geoffrey Case and Veneziano-C tried to catch Guillermo Williams and Marbella’s speedy time, but were just hundredths of a second short. 

The course for the 1.40m Open Jumpers was designed by Marina Azevedo of Brazil, and featured multiple rollbacks, a skinny vertical, a vertical-oxer double combination, and an oxer-vertical-vertical triple combination. Eleven horse and rider combinations advanced to the jump-off, which began with a vertical-oxer line with a rollback to the skinny, followed by the double combination, a liverpool vertical, and finishing with a rollback to a single oxer headed toward the gate.
