Lexington, Ky. – May 15, 2019 – Wednesday welcomed the first day of the Kentucky Spring Classic and the start of international show jumping competition with the $36,000 Welcome Speed 1.45m CSI3* in the Rolex Stadium. Thirty-seven horse-and-athlete combinations challenged the 14-effort speed track built by Kelvin Bywater (GBR), but the uncatchable fault-free time of 63.89 seconds set forth by Brian Moggre (USA) and Major Wager LLC’s MTM Flutterby proved worthy of the win by more than one full second.
Jennifer Alfano and Kindred Claim Green Hunter Incentive Stake Win
The first day at the Kentucky Spring Classic kicked off in the Stonelea Ring with the Green Hunter Incentive Stake with top hunter horse-and-rider combinations competing for the prize. Pairs competed in the 3’6” and 3’9” sections of the Green Hunter division, with the second over fences round designated toward the stake’s final results. It was Jennifer Alfano and Kathy Chiaf’s Kindred who put in Wednesday’s most impressive ride that would earn them a score of 86, sending them straight at the top of the leaderboard.
