CampbellThe Rolex Stadium was alive with the nation’s top horse and rider combinations gathering to compete beneath the lights in the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic during the Kentucky Summer Classic. Kaitlin Campbell and Rocky W topped tonight’s seven-horse jump-off with a beautiful double-clear effort. Campbell also was the last to compete with Grand Pleasure, riding to the only other double-clear score and nabbing the second place prize. 

Forty-eight riders tackled tonight’s opening track, designed by Anthony D’Ambrosio. For the first round, riders had to show over a triple bar, an open water jump, an oxer-vertical double combination, and a vertical-oxer-vertical triple combination. Faults were wide spread throughout the course, causing many riders to incur penalties that proved costly to their qualification for the jump-off. *Fence seven was the open water jump off of a right turn from an oxer coming out of the ending line of the double combination, and shortly after was followed by a five-stride line leading into the square triple combination. Nine horses had rails at obstacle seven, while 13 horses saw fault in the triple combination, and 10 horses went on to add penalties to their score throughout the double.

Top riders prepared their mounts to take on the second day of the Professional Hunters and Performance Hunters, to win the Kentucky Summer Classic championship awards for their respective divisions. First Year Working Hunters saw Holly Orlando and Cornerstone surpass all competition to take the top call, while Christopher Payne proved true to form, winning the championship in his divisions aboard both talented steeds, Lugano and Holden.  As foreseen from yesterday’s division sweeps, Hunt Tosh guided two horses, Lone Star and Cold Harbor, to their rightful titles of champion. 

The assembly of the course today varied with single vertical to oxer lines. Designed by Danny Moore, the picturesque arena was designed with bright shrubbery and natural arrangements, and a log trot jump, which loomed as the closing obstacle of the handy class.

Looking forward to a warm, dry day after the first week of unpredictable weather, the Stonelea Arena saw a lineup of divisions from the morning’s First Year Green Working Hunters to the Performance 3’6” Hunter divisions. The footing and course made for a congenial ride for all participants for the first day of the professional divisions. Onlookers ultimately beheld two strong contenders and their steeds overwhelming the competition with enough talent to sweep today’s divisions. 

 Christopher Payne delivered exceptional performances aboard his mounts today, picking up top honors in the First Year Green Working Hunters, Green Conformation Hunters and the Second Year Green Working Hunters. It was Hunt Tosh who stole the show with a clean sweep of two divisions on two very memorable mounts. Tosh guided Cold Harbor to a dominating performance in the Regular Conformation Division, as well as capturing two blues with veteran Lone Star in the Performance 3’6” Hunter division.
