Campbell now holds the top spot in the 2012 Hagyard Challenge Series, sponsored by the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. Consisting of seven grand prix classes to be held during the 2012 show series at the Kentucky Horse Park, the Hagyard Challenge Series offers a $50,000 Leading Rider Award.

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.

Hunt

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.
