Katherine Newman Wins High Junior Jumper Championship at Hampton Classic Horse Show

Bridgehampton, NY - September 4, 2007 - At this past weekend's prestigious and competitive Hampton Classic Horse Show, Allwyn Court of Wellington, FL, had a very successful week. Katherine Newman, daughter of Gerry and Kathy Newman, won the High Junior Jumper championship on her stallion, Costa Sur.

Coming off of her individual gold medal performance last month at the North American Junior Young Rider Championships, Newman was poised and ready to be one of the top junior riders at the show. She and Costa Sur finished seventh in the $5,000 High Junior Jumper class. They were second in the $15,000 WGHR Farm Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic and took home the division championship and cooler.

Newman also piloted Titleist for owner Manhattan Mortgage to consistent ribbons in the Small Junior 16-17 Hunters.

Todd Minikus, one of the top show jumpers in the country, has competed abroad this summer for the U.S. showjumping team in the Samsung Super League. Upon returning to see his student this past weekend at the Hamptons, he was very pleased to see Newman riding consistently well. "He said that he could tell she'd done her homework over the summer," said Gerry Newman. "She rode beautifully this week."

Minikus rode Tracey Topping's Eltonn to victory in the 1.35m Jumpers on Tuesday, August 28. Eltonn is also trained by Kathy Newman.

Topping donned her show clothes to compete in the Adult Amateur 46 & Over Hunter division and took home top ribbons on Best Seller and Espoir du Feif III.

In the same division, Melissa Cohn of Manhattan Mortgage rode Bulgari to third place in the over fences class and won ribbons on Corvet Z.

Mimi Abel-Smith competed in the Amateur-Owner Over 36 Hunters, one of the most competitive divisions at the show, and picked up good ribbons on her horse Almelo.

Katherine Newman will travel this week to the Region 2 ASPCA Maclay Qualifier at Old Salem Farm on Sunday, September 9. Allwyn Court will show next at the Capital Challenge Horse Show on September 29-October 7, 2007.
