Lexington, KY – August 27, 2014 – It may have been Callie Schott who took home the top honors during the Hagyard Lexington Classic at the KHJA Horse Show, but Pablo Barrios continues to lead the $50,000 Leading Rider Bonus in Hagyard Challenge Series Barrios and Antares captured the top prize during the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic, which coupled with three other wins gives him a clear lead in the standings.

However, the standings for the second place finisher, who will receive $10,000 still remain tight. Ireland’s Shane Sweetnam increased his lead over Ramiro Quintana with a good result during the KHJA Horse Show, which was combined with his victory during the Kentucky Summer Classic. With Quintana still in the running though, Sweetnam will need to remain consistent during the final event at the Kentucky National Horse Show.

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. New this year, the runner up will earn a $10,000 prize for their efforts in the Series. The sixth event in the series will be this Friday during the KHJA Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park.
