Lexington, Ky. – Aug. 3, 2018 – Sarah Kerins and Entertainer V were unstoppable in the Low Amateur-Owner/Junior Jumper division Friday afternoon during the Kentucky Summer Classic. The pair completed the power and speed course with no faults and in a blistering time of 27.220 seconds, which clocked in at a half of a second fast than runner-up Alexandra Davidson on Elle. The incredibly competitive class featured 40 horse-and-rider combinations over a course designed by Anderson Lima of Brazil.
Friday’s class was formatted as a single round power and speed course, where faults would be converted into additional time against the clock at the end of the trip. Listed in the middle of the order of go, Kerins and Entertainer V easily sped past the original fastest combination and maintained the lead with ease. Davidson and her own Elle claimed the reserve place with a time of 27.594 seconds, trailed by owner-rider Shanna Beyer aboard Invictus with a time of 28.163 seconds to round out the top three.
Kerins took over the ride on Entertainer V from her husband, Irish grand prix rider Darragh Kerins, after the conclusion of the winter show season in Wellington, Florida. In their short time together, the pair has already racked up multiple top placings in the Amateur-Owner Low Jumpers at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, as well as at the Kentucky Horse Park.
