Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumpers Highlight the Saturday Schedule at the 110th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show

Freehold, NJ- August 20 – Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumpers took center stage at the Stillwell-Hansen Arena on Saturday at the 110th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show at East Freehold Park in Freehold, New Jersey.

In the first of two offerings for the Low Junior-Amateur Owner Jumpers, twenty-eight competitors took the field, in a class scored under Table II, Sec 2b., Time First Jump-Off. The jumper courses in the Stillwell Hansen Arena are being designed by Germantown, Tennessee’s Blake Alder.

Ten horse and rider combinations produced first round clears and four of those went to be double clear.

Clementine Goutal finished first and second, taking top honors with Halifax Farm’s Rastella and second with Mary Alexis Healey’s Lauren. Rastella’s top time was a hasty 32.478 seconds and less than a second and a half behind was Lauren’s time of 33.838 seconds.

Christina Fried’s Felix Des Vents took home the yellow ribbon for third place. Fried zipped across the finish line in 35.457 seconds. Kimberley McCormack, piloting Alex R. Jayne’s Melbourne, finished fourth in 35.569 seconds.

Goutal, who posted a win on Friday, talked about her back to back victories. “Both of my horses are amazing. Yesterday, I made a mistake on Rastella, but won with Laurin,” noted Goutal. “Today, I went first on Laurin, so I had the advantage of knowing the track when I went on Rastella. She jumped fantastic and dealt with my mistakes and helped me out,” laughed Goutal. “I didn’t go too crazy on Laurin, because tomorrow I have the Classic. If I go too fast on the day before the big class, then she’s really wild, so I decided to take my time.”

In the second class for the Low Junior-Amateur Owner Jumpers, again scored under Table II, Sec 2b, there were sixteen starters. Nine were clear and five double clear. Four competitors had four faults and three had eight or more.

This class was decided right away. Joy Slater, the first to go, took the lead and never relinquished it. Partnered with Olivier, owned by the Fat Chance Farm, Slater let out all the stops and left the balance of the class to fight for second place. Slater’s time in the jump-off was 26.947 seconds, just over a second faster than second place finisher Kimberly McCormack. McCormack piloted Alex R. Jayne’s Melbourne to the red ribbon finish, tripping the timers in 28.172 seconds.

Katrina Woods and her mount Ina Brun were third in 29.001 seconds, while Christian Luneberg piloted Just Imagine to the fourth place in 29.222 seconds.

Slater talked about her wire to wire win. “You want to go fast enough, but going first, you’ve got to be sure to leave the fences up too,” she said. “I was a little slow from 1 to 11 in the jump-off, but I was pretty accurate and fast the rest of the way. I didn’t gallop that fast, but I did make accurate turns.”

Slater said that she and her mount Olivier both like coming to Monmouth. “He likes this ring. He won the first class last year here too. And I think this is a great place to compete,” Slater noted. “This is a really fun horse show. They work really hard here and it’s a pleasure to compete here.”

In the first of two lightly attended High Junior-Amateur Owner Jumper classes, there were eleven starters. The class was scored under Table II, Sec 2b. Of the eleven, four went clear and three of those went double clear.

Eleanor Kunsman and her speedy Firestar of Orion came home with the victory, breaking the beams in 28.846 seconds. Crackie, owned by the Tivoli Farm and ridden by William Coleman, finished off the pace by .383 seconds and took home the red ribbon. Coleman crossed the finish line in 29.229 seconds. Iago Du Quesnoy from the Kevin Babington Stables finished third.

In the second class for the High Junior/Amateur-Owners there were just seven starters. Scored under Table II, Sec 2b, there were four clear and two double clear.

Katrina Woods and Cash Flow emerged victorious with a double clear performance and a jump-off time of 34.483 seconds. Kelly Maroney and It’s Morado finished second, clearing the timers in 35.870 seconds.

Woods had to sweat it out as the last to go, Carolyn Kelly and Blast, owned by Scott Stewart, had their time beat, but pulled a rail at the final fence. Kelly sailed home in 33.392 seconds, but the four faults relegated her to third place.

Woods talked about Cash Flow following today’s activities. “I got him from Jimmy and Danielle Torano. My first show with him was North American Young Riders last year and I’ve been doing him in the high section all this year,” she said. “I’ve been at school (Lafayette College) and haven’t been showing a whole lot, but we got good prizes at HITS and Lake Placid this year.”

What was they key to the win today? “Sometimes I don’t get his blood up enough,” Woods laughed. “That happened yesterday. Today, we got a few rubs in the warm up area and he jumped three feet over everything. He’s a really smart horse and he wants to jump clean.”
