Atlanta Fall Classic Highlights

We had a great week in Conyers.  The weather got a little chilly a few mornings but warmed up perfect for showing.

This week we hosted the annual Barry Lane Memorial Children’s Adult Jumper Classic.  As we have for the past eight years we offered $25,000, but because of all the hoops the jumper committees want us to jump through for permission to offer such a class (and we were told not to ask again until we offered more money to the Jr AOs or the Open horses), we ran two classes, a $10,000 and a $15,000 class.  They were a great success.  We had 59 compete for the big bucks.  One class held on Saturday under the lights in the Olympic stadium and one on Sunday before the Grand Prix.

The winner of the first class was Little Tom and Patricia Hennessy trained by Chris Kappler.

This week we hosted the Zone 4 North Finals. Thank you Zone 4 for the Pizza at the ring this week, with over 700 horses the concession stands had lines and the pizza ringside was great.  The Champions are all posted on website along with all the complete results.

I do want to remind you that the Jacksonville, Pensacola and Gulfport are on our website.  The prize lists will be in the mail on Nov. 18th.

I am flying to Jacksonville, Pensacola and then Gulfport on Monday to check on all the venues to make sure they are ready for us in a few weeks.  I will report when I get back.

See you at the rings,
