Allwyn Court Captures High Ribbons at CN Worldwide Wellington Finale CSI 5*

Wellington, FL – March 20, 2007 – This past week, Allwyn Court competed at the CN Worldwide Wellington Finale CSI 5*, which was the eighth week of competition at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). Allwyn Court, a show stable in Wellington that is owned and managed by Kathy and Gerry Newman, earned numerous ribbons at the Palm Beach Polo Equestrian Club.

Melissa Cohn, who trained with the Newmans throughout the 2007 WEF season, finished second and third in the Adult Amateur 36-50 Hunters with her horse Bulgari.

Cohn’s daughter, Sarah Alvarez, also showed at WEF in the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunters with her mount Titleist.

Bulgari and Titleist, as well as Cohn’s new mount Corvet Z, are owned by Manhattan Mortgage. Cohn is the founder, owner and president of Manhattan Mortgage and has earned the company recognition as the number one residential mortgage brokerage in metropolitan New York.

"I have had, for me, the most successful circuit since I hit the scenes in Wellington seven years ago," commented Cohn. "I moved to Allwyn Court in early November and have had an amazing season with them. I came down with three horses," she explained, "Bulgari, who is my star, Titleist, who is my daughter Sarah’s star, and Aviator, a young Warmblood that I bought last year."

"Bulgari has been my mainstay this circuit," she stated. "Two weeks ago, I won my first blue ribbon ever at WEF, and we got second and third on Sunday, the final day of circuit here. It was the first two ribbon day for me!" she exclaimed. "I have learned more from the Newmans in the past five months than I have in years, and my goal for next year is to go beyond a blue ribbon and go for a tricolor!"

The Newman’s daughter, Katherine, is also a fierce competitor in the junior divisions, and she recently moved up to the High Junior Jumpers with her horse Costa Sur. In addition to the ribbons they won throughout WEF, the pair took home second and sixth places last week. She also enjoyed success in the saddle aboard numerous junior hunters and equitation horses that she catch-rode for other trainers and owners.

Another top performer at Allwyn Court is the small pony Farnley Byron. Christina Firestone, who is the niece of show jumper Alison Firestone Robitaille, showed Farnley Byron in the Small Pony Hunters and earned her first blue ribbon a few weeks ago. She also received high ribbons at last week’s competition.

"Basically, I can’t say enough about the Newmans and Allwyn court," added Cohn. "They welcomed me in at the last minute and made me feel totally at home, and I think my riding is proof of the success of this new team."
