KentCapturing a ribbon was no easy task during today’s $20,000 Bluegrass Classic at the Kentucky Spring Horse Show. Forty-two entries gathered at the Rolex Stadium to compete in the 1.45m Open Jumper event, but when 23 qualified for the tiebreaker the results came down to a foot race. Besting the clock and the course was Kent Farrington aboard Zidane, breaking the beam at 38.879 to take home the winning prize. Ramiro Quintana, riding Largo to second place, followed him, and Emanuel Andrade placed third with Walter 61. 

Richard Jefferys set a very inviting course for today’s event at the Kentucky Horse Park. The first round included an open water option, an oxer-vertical double combination, and a vertical-oxer-vertical triple combination. Twenty-three were able to master the track and advance to the jump-off, where speed and accuracy were the keys to winning. “That was probably more than Richard expected, but he’s not building it to be the grand prix,” stated Farrington after his win. “I think he just maybe under built for the class today, but that just meant the jump-off turned into a speed class.”

KalvinRain and wind proved to be the lucky charm for Kalvin Dobb’s Winde in the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers. The talented young rider took home top honors in the competitive class at the Rolex Stadium during the Kentucky Spring Horse Show. Earlier in the day, Aaron Vale also claimed a blue ribbon, piloting Palm Sunday to the fastest double clear effort in the 1.45m Open Jumpers. 

A steady rain and chilly wind made for a challenging day at the Kentucky Horse Park. For the 1.45m Open Jumpers and the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers, Richard Jefferys produced a technical track that included an open water, a triple bar, an oxer-vertical double combination, and a vertical-vertical-oxer triple combination. The riders that were able to advance to the tiebreaker had to show over four new fences, as well as the open water option, making sharp turns and using long gallops to beat the clock.

During the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers, ten riders managed to advance to the short course. Emanuel Andrade set the time to beat at a clear 33.036 seconds with La Fe Forli, owned by Hollow Creek Farm of Aiken, SC, which would eventually place fourth. Frances Land of Alpharetta, GA slipped in behind him early in the class riding Vieanne to a time of 34.565 seconds that would earn sixth at the end of the day.
