Kacey McCann of SBS Farms Wins at I Love New York Horse Show in Lake Placid

Lake Placid, NY - July 10, 2007 - At the I Love New York Horse Show, which was held July 4-8, 2007, in beautiful Lake Placid, NY, Kacey McCann of SBS Farms rode multiple horses to top finishes. McCann received help from Jimmy Torano at the competitive show. McCann trains with Jennifer Alfano and Susie Schoellkopf of SBS Farms in Buffalo, NY.

In the junior hunters, McCann and Pirate, who is owned by Caroline Moran, finished as reserve champions in the Small Junior 16-17 Hunters. Pirate finished first and third over fences and added a fourth place under saddle for the tricolor. Despite downpours of rain, McCann said Pirate was good in the inclement weather. "The rain doesn't bother him at all," she smiled. McCann also piloted Tycoon for Brittany Warden in the same division and received top ribbons.

McCann rode Danielle Torano's Rembrandt VT Paradijs in the High Junior Jumpers to fourth place in the opening class. They were double clear in the $10,000 High Junior Jumper Classic to finish in second place. "He jumped great on the grass, and I loved the field," McCann said. "We had a slower time in the jump-off because I really wanted to go clean. He was so good there!"

In the equitation, McCann rode Urco, a former jumper owned by Gabby Slome. The pair showed together at the HITS-on-the-Hudson shows earlier this year. Urco is adjusting well to his new discipline, McCann noted. "He's got such a great look," she pointed out. "He's a big, flashy chestnut, and he goes in a nice frame. I think he'll be really great in this division."

Urco and McCann were second in the ASPCA Maclay class and third overall in the WIHS Equitation Classic.

McCann, along with the rest of SBS Farms, will compete next at the Chagrin Valley Hunter Jumper Classic Horse Show on July 14-22, 2007, in Moreland Hills, OH.
