Lexington, KY – May 17, 2008 – The sun shone this Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park during the Kentucky Spring Classic. The junior hunters appreciated the break in the clouds as they competed for championship and reserve championship awards in the Stonelea Arena.

Jennifer Waxman was the day’s star when she won the championship and reserve championship tricolors in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters. Cento, owned by Golden Point Farm of Wellington, FL was champion for the second time in two weeks, while Theory, also owned by Golden Point Farm, was the reserve champion.

“Yesterday it was nice. Even with all the rain they had the night before, the footing was pretty good,” said Waxman. “Both of my horses went well. It’s hard for them to stay quiet when the weather changes.”

Waxman loves Cento because of his wonderful personality. “He is very sweet and innocent. When we first got him, he didn’t even know what a treat was, but we’ve spoiled him pretty fast,” explained Waxman. “Theory is a horse with a heart full of gold who always tries hard and wants to do well.”

In the Small Junior 16-17 Hunters, the championship award went to Unique, owned by Krestwood LLC of Pipersville, PA, and Kaitlin Campbell. Confidential, owned by Caroline Cramer of Pointe Vedra, FL, and Katherine Newman brought home the reserve championship trophy.

Earlier in the day Ande Farish and Capetown, owned by Lanes End of Versailles, KY, garnered the Small Junior Hunter 15 & Under Championship. Colleen Lewis of West Chester, PA, piloted Captain Nemo to reserve champion.

Farish, as a Kentucky native, was excited to do so well at this show. “We live in Kentucky, so we come every year. It’s close and my trainers live here too. We’ve been coming here forever.”

The Large Junior 15 & Under Hunter division was next in the Stonelea Arena. The championship tricolor was awarded to Katie Dinan of New York, NY, for the second week in a row, but this time it was for her other horse Allejandro. The reserve championship ribbon went to Rio Roxanne, owned by Stepping Stone Farm of Ridgefield, CT, with Paulena Johnson in the irons.

The Kentucky Spring Classic Horse Show will conclude tomorrow. Amateur-Owner and Pony hunters will compete for the final tricolors of the show in the Stonelea, Claiborne, and Murphy Arenas.
