Alison Robitaille has traveled to the Olympics as a first alternate, competed at the World Equestrian Games and won team silver at the Pan American Games, but in recent years, as she busily brings along young horses and two young children of her own, she has been continually knocking on the door of a grand prix win. On Saturday night at the Kentucky Horse Park she knocked the door all the way down and rode away with an impressive victory in the $50,000 Kentucky Summer Classic Grand Prix, sponsored by GGT Footing.

“I’m really so excited. It’s been a long time since I’ve won a grand prix,” Robitaille said. “I’m so proud of my horse. I got her at the end of her 7-year-old year and sort of stepped her up into the grand prix. I’m just really proud of her.”

BeiselEvery now and then, Lavish wanders out of semi-retirement to play around in hunter derbies with rider David Beisel. On Saturday morning, Beisel taught a few lessons, loaded up the old pro and headed to the Kentucky Horse Park to compete in the $5,000 USHJA Hallway Feeds National Hunter Derby at the Kentucky Summer Classic on Saturday afternoon.

Despite their casual arrival, Beisel and Lavish came prepared to win, turning in an impressive first round over the Bobby Murphy-designed course to earn a score of 85, including the four extra points for taking all of the high options. With their spot high in the top 12 secured, Beisel watched the handy round from the sidelines, developing his strategy all the while.

Anna Dryden arrived in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday morning, just in time to sweep the High Amateur-Owner Jumpers on Friday afternoon at the Kentucky Summer Classic before she heads back home to Manhattan on Saturday.

Anna Cardelfe and Firenze Van De Cadzondhoeve set an early pace to beat of 59.308 seconds, and with only seven entries jumping clear around the Florencio Hernandez-designed course, few others came close to the top spot. Dryden, however, last in the order of go, entered the ring confident that she would take over Cardelfe’s lead.

 Sydney Shulman is on a roll, and she is not showing signs of slowing down. In the past month and a half the young rider has won four grand prix – first at the Ox Ridge Hunt Club, then at the Fairfield County Hunt Club and just four days ago in the $50,000 Rood and Riddle Kentucky Grand Prix. On Thursday night she returned to the Rolex Stadium at the Kentucky Horse Park to capture the win the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic.  

Shulman and Wamira, owned by BCF Group, dominated the class at the Kentucky Summer Classic from beginning to end. They were the very first to enter the ring and contest the Florencio Hernandez designed course, finishing clear and advancing to the jump-off. From the 51 total entries, six other combinations would also qualify to give Shulman and Wamira a run for their money in the jump-off, but none would catch the pair’s double clear effort completed in a time of 35.547 seconds.

EmmaJunior rider Emma Kurtz is a familiar face in the winner’s circle at horse shows across the country, and on Thursday the young talent added a few more blues to her collection in the Junior 15 and Under Hunter divisions at the Kentucky Summer Classic. 

As the day began with the Small Junior 15 and Under Hunters, Kurtz piloted Molly Hay’s Kahlua to double second-place finishes over fences, proving to be the most solid combination of the division so far. First place went once Hayley Fleming’s Wesley, ridden by Anna Beth Athey, and once to Hilary Gerhardt’s Count Down and Emma Wujek.
