Amber Mitchell and E.S.H. Larry Race to NAL Speed Win at Monmouth County Horse Show

Freehold, NJ – August 18, 2006 – Exhibitors and spectators were greeted by another picture postcard day on Friday as the 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show at East Freehold Park rolled into its third day of action in New Jersey.

The North American League Open Speed Stake took center stage at the Stillwell-Hansen Arena, with twenty-three starters going to the post in a class scored under USEF Table II, Sec 1, Time First Round. Blake Alder of Germantown, Tennessee, is designing the courses for the jumpers this week.

Seven of the twenty-three horse and rider combinations that started on Friday came home with fault free rounds, with today’s winner emerging early in the class. Riding out of the sixth spot in the order, Amber Mitchell produced the first clear ride of the day on E.S.H. Larry, owned by the Brass Ring Farm. Her time of 45.500 seconds was challenged twice, but held up through the balance of the class.

Callen Solem and Quiet Winter Farm’s Warsaw came the closest to knocking Mitchell off of the top of the leaderboard, but the pair missed by a tenth of a second, crossing the finish line in 45.619 seconds. Just behind Solem, in third place, were Ramiro Quintana and Capriola, owned by Winley Farm. Quintana’s finish time was 45.628, just 9/1000th behind Solem.

Robert Ross and Henry Jota Romano from the Romance Farm finished fourth in 47.318 seconds.

“I have the best horse there is,” exclaimed a jubilant Mitchell following her victory. “He’s wonderful.”

A perfectly executed inside cut from fence 1 to fence 2, one of only two attempted in the class, was the key to Mitchell’s win today. “I was contemplating before the class whether that was a wise move or not,” she said. “But, my horse has a real small step, and I figured that the only shot we had to win the class was to get that tight turn from 1 to 2, and we did it.”

“I really didn’t think my time would hold up going that early,” she admitted. “I did the best I could, but he doesn’t have a huge stride. So I thought if someone else was successful doing the inside turn, they would certainly catch him based on foot speed.”

Seventeen of the twenty-three starters had rails down in today’s event. Did that surprise Mitchell? “I was surprised with all the rails,” she said. “But when one rider gets around clean and fast like I did, I think that kind of puts the pressure on the rest, and they end up getting a little sloppy trying to catch up.”

“He did his first grand prix ever yesterday,” Mitchell revealed. “And I thought today would be a good day to try this. He was on the top of his game. So, I couldn’t be happier and that’s enough for him this week. We’ll end on this winning note.”

Earlier in the day, Blast and Alexandra Arute raced home in 25.609 seconds to post a narrow win over Rastella and Clementine Goutal in the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Power and Speed. Goutal was 7/100ths of a second behind in 25.670 seconds. Nicole Lakin and Alaska finished third in 26.630 seconds.

In the Low Section, Joy Slater and Shindig were the Power and Speed winners. Slater bested Maria Schaub and Teddy Bear by 4/10th of a second. Kelline Fonroy and Clementine Goutal were third.

On Saturday, Junior, Amateur, Adult, and Children Jumpers will fill the agenda at the Stillwell-Hansen Arena.

On Sunday, the 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show will draw to a close with the $30,000 Stillwell-Hansen Grand Prix at 1p.m.

The North American League (NAL) runs season-long series in six hunter-jumper divisions Children’s Hunter, Children’s Jumper, Adult Hunter, Adult Jumper, Pony Jumper and Open Jumper Speed. Each series culminates with a championship final at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, PA in October. Riders need not be members of the NAL to compete in any qualifying classes, but only current members earn points toward year-end finals. For more information, a list of qualifying competitions and results, please see the Ryegate Show Services website at www.Ryegate.com.
