Lexington, KY – May 17, 2014 - Pablo Barrios took the early lead in the 2014 Hagyard Challenge Series by claiming the top spot during last week’s $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic. After galloping to another victory this Thursday aboard Romeo, Barrios has only solidified his position at the top of the leader board.

A fourth place finish this week with Hardrock Z, coupled with a top placing last week puts fellow Venezuelan Emanuel Andrade in second place, while two top ribbons for Callan Solem have her positioned third in the rankings.

The Hagyard Challenge Series is a summer-long series of seven show jumping events at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The rider who accumulates the most points in the series will receive a $50,000 Leading Rider Award, presented during the Kentucky National Horse Show in September. The second event in the series will be next Thursday during the Kentucky Spring Classic at the Kentucky Horse Park.
