Tracey Weinberg and Larone Win Opening High Amateur-Owner Jumper Class at Kentucky Spring Horse Show

Lexington, KY - May 11, 2007 - The amateur-owner jumper riders opened up the competition this afternoon in the Johnson Arena at the 2007 Kentucky Spring Horse Show. Thirty-nine riders went to post in a Time First Jump-off format, and Tracey Weinberg on Larone raced to the win over Paige Johnson and La Martinee.

Weinberg and Johnson were the only two double-clear rounds in the class over a course designed by Richard Jeffery of Great Britain. The jump-off course included an option over the small grass bank in the ring.

The early leader of the class was Danielle Torano on Kruimel, who sped around the jump-off for the fastest time of the day in 28.638 seconds, but she had an unfortunate four faults. Torano finished in third place. Johnson and her mount took over the lead with the first double clear round and had a time of 31.802 seconds.

Only eight riders advanced to the jump-off, and it looked like Johnson would hold onto her lead. Weinberg entered the ring as the next to last competitor and turned on the afterburners in the second round to finish in 28.984 seconds for the win.

Weinberg has owned the 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion by Concorde for two years. Larone was the Six-Year-Old World Champion, and Weinberg said she “was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time when [his previous owner] wanted to sell him.”

“He’s just been the most amazing horse I’ve ever had,” she said with a smile. “He wins time after time. He knows his job. I show him very selectively. I usually only do one or two classes at a horse show, and he doesn’t do more than nine horse shows a year. I can’t say enough about the horse; he’s all heart. He’s small and you think he can’t do the big jumps, but he just tries his heart out every single time.”

Weinberg also gave credit for her success to trainer Joe Fargis and Larone’s groom of two years, Juan Carlos Guidano.

The Kentucky Spring Horse Show continues tomorrow with the $15,000 Bluegrass Derby in the Johnson Arena, followed by the speed classes for the High Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumpers.
