PhelpsSports.com Sponsors 2008 Palm Beach Dressage Derby

WELLINGTON, FL - November 28, 2007 - The 2008 PhelpsSports.com Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDI-W/CDIY will be held February 28 through March 2 at The Horse Park at Equestrian Estates in Loxahatchee, Florida. The premiere international equestrian website, http://www.PhelpsSports.com, is sponsoring the Palm Beach Dressage Derby for the second consecutive year. The prestigious show celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2008.

The 2008 PhelpsSports Derby is a USEF High Performance Qualifying Competition for the USEF National Grand Prix Championship / Olympic Games Selection Trials; USEF National Intermediaire I Championship; FEI World Cup(TM) Dressage Final; FEI North American Junior and Young Riders' Championships; USEF National Junior, Young Rider, and Brentina Cup Championships; Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Program; and USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship sponsored by The Dutta Corporation and PSI. The PhelpsSports Derby is also a Qualifying Competition for the Colonel Bengt Ljungquist Memorial (BLM) Championships, open to both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens.

PhelpsSports.com signed on in 2006 as the title sponsor of the Derby for 2007 and 2008, committing $35,000 to the show, and is the first sponsor the event has had in its quarter-century history. "The Derby is the crown jewel of American dressage and it is a thrill to be involved with this prestigious event," said Mason Phelps, president and founder of PhelpsSports.com. "We plan to help in every way we can to make The Derby's 25th Anniversary celebration memorable for everyone."

In addition to the sponsorship, PhelpsSports.com will provide all exhibitors (approximately 350) with Free Access Passes to PhelpsSports.com during the show and memberships to PhelpsSports.com will be awarded as prizes, including approximately 60 One-Year Memberships and three Lifetime Memberships. The addition of PhelpsSports.com Free Access Passes and Membership awards increases the $20,000 in prizes and awards already offered at the PhelpsSports Derby by more than $8,000. Memberships to PhelpsSports.com are $80 for One-Year and $750 for Lifetime.

New for 2008, Additional Day Added to PhelpsSports.com Free Access Pass

Following up the well-received Free Access Pass offered last year, exhibitors in the 2008 PhelpsSports Derby will once again receive a laminated credit-card sized Free Access Pass to PhelpsSports.com in their competitors' packets. NEW for 2008, by popular demand PhelpsSports.com has added an additional day to the free access. PhelpsSports Derby cardholders can log in to PhelpsSports.com from Thursday, February 28, through Monday, March 3 - the day after the show's conclusion.

PhelpsSports.com will provide daily coverage of the PhelpsSports Derby action, including articles, videos, audios, and photos. Last year at the 2007 PhelpsSports Derby, coverage on PhelpsSports.com included 16 feature articles, nine video and audio interviews, 100 photos, videos of winning rides, plus the Day Sheets and Full Results for both the National classes and the CDI.

PhelpsSports.com Membership Prizes for EVERY Class Winner

In addition to their trophies, blue ribbons and prize money at the PhelpsSports Derby, every winner of every class will also receive a prize of a One-Year Membership to the PhelpsSports.com web site.

One-Year Membership winners in the National classes will be presented with a mail-in membership card when they receive their blue ribbons at the show. One-Year Membership winners in the CDI (includes all classes except the Freestyles) will receive a framed certificate in the Awards Ceremonies.

Winners of the CDI Grand Prix Freestyle, Intermediaire I Freestyle, and Young Rider Freestyle on Sunday, March 2, will receive Lifetime Memberships to PhelpsSports.com. Winners of the Lifetime Subscriptions will be presented with a framed certificate during the Awards Ceremonies at the show.
