Clara Lindner Sweeps Younger Amateur-Owner Hunters at Kentucky Summer Classic

Chris Brown and Carpaccio Repeat Championship Performance in Older A-Os

Lexington, KY - August 12, 2007 - As the Kentucky Summer Classic Horse Show drew to a close today, the Amateur-Owner Hunter divisions wrapped up for championships in the Stonelea Arena. In the younger division, Clara Lindner of Cincinnati, OH, topped the charts with her two mounts and came away with double tricolors.

Yesterday Lindner piloted Hush to first place over fences in the Amateur-Owner 18-35 Hunters, and her second horse, In The Black, jogged behind Hush for the red ribbon. In the second over fences class, Hush pinned second and In The Black went home with seventh place. This afternoon, Hush earned blue ribbons once again in the first over fences and the under saddle. He also won third place in the second over fences class and was awarded the overall division championship. Today In The Black took third and first over fences, trotted to fifth place under saddle, and received the reserve championship ribbon. Both horses are owned by All Seasons Farm LLC of Wellington, FL.

"In The Black is eight-years-old," reported Lindner about her horses. "He's actually my mom's horse. She got him last year after Tampa and she's been busy, so I kind of took over the reins on him. He's been great and a lot of fun. Hush is seven-years-old this year, and I just got him at the beginning of Florida. He's quite green and is really coming along."

"They were both really good today," she said. "Normally we have to work them a little harder (before showing), but it's so hot out that you can almost go from stall to ring, and they're perfect. They were both excellent. Yesterday they were good too. I was a little bit rusty because I hadn't ridden them in about a month. I had a hard rub with one of them, but for the most part it was good."

In the Amateur-Owner 35 and Older Hunters, Chris Brown won the championship with Carpaccio for the second week in a row. The pair won first and second yesterday and captured first and second today as well. They also picked up fourth place under saddle. Brown resides in Oakland, NJ.

"It's scary!" laughed Brown about being champion for two consecutive weeks at the Kentucky Summer Horse Shows. "I can't believe I could do that two weeks in a row and find that many jumps in a row!" He related, "The courses were great. I loved the course designer this week. They always have beautiful jumps here, and they make it appealing to the horses and riders to go out there and do their job. That's what I try to do every time, so it's great."

He continued, "When I go out there, I focus on energy and staying focused in my own brain and giving him time to see the jump and get his eye on it. He's a little young and green still, so I kind of have to let him know and give him enough time so that he knows where he is. I work on that and just knowing where I am at all times. I don't get nervous; I get excited. That's my problem," he smiled. "I get too excited. My summer has been great. We've done a lot of horse shows down here. Our horses live here in Kentucky, so I commute back and forth from New Jersey, and I just love it down here. The summer has been great."

Acappella and Mary Jane King of Town & Country, MO, were presented with reserve championship honors in the older Amateur-Owners this afternoon. The duo received first and second yesterday, and today King piloted Acappella to first and third place ribbons.

After a week of sunny skies and warm temperatures, the Kentucky Summer Classic has officially concluded at the Kentucky Horse Park. Course designer Glenn Moody excelled with his tracks, and the event was another successful show produced by Kentucky Horse Show, LLC.
