SBS Farms' Jennifer Alfano Take Five Tricolors at Saratoga Classic Horse Show

Saratoga Springs, NY - June 24, 2009 - SBS Farms rider and trainer Jennifer Alfano of Buffalo, NY, had a very successful week at the Skidmore College Saratoga Classic Horse Show. She rode five horses to tricolor ribbons in the professional hunter divisions. Alfano is also coming off of a successful Devon Horse Show and the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame event, where she was named Rider of the Year.

In the First Year Green Working Hunter division, Alfano swept the championship ribbons. On Kid Rock, owned by Bright Star 158 LLC, she finished as champion of the division. They won the handy hunter class along with two other classes and placed second and sixth in the division. Extraordinary, owned by Helen Lenahan, was reserve champion after they placed second in the handy hunter class and were first and fifth in other division classes.

Kid Rock and Extraordinary started the year as green First Year horses, but Alfano noted that they both horses have matured quickly. "I think competing at Devon helped them a lot," she said. "Extraordinary was the youngest and greenest of the group, but now he has really started to figure everything out and come into his own. Kid Rock is getting really consistent, which is nice."

Alfano rode The Specialist, owned by Meredith Lipke Bartolone, to reserve champion in the Second Year Green Working Hunters. They were second in the under saddle, sixth in the handy hunter, and placed first, third, and third in the remaining over fences classes.

South Beach, owned by Bright Star 158 LLC, was also reserve champion in the Green Conformation Hunters. They placed very well with second in the model, second under saddle, and second in the handy hunter class. They added to that another first, second, and third places over fences.

Alfano topped off a great week with a solid championship performance in the Regular Working Hunters. She and Jersey Boy, owned by SBS Farms, nearly swept the division ribbons for the top tricolor. They won the under saddle, handy hunter, and two over fences classes and were second in the remaining jumping class.

Alfano and her horses had not shown since the Devon Horse Show and this was another great performance leading into the Lake Placid Horse Show. "All of the horses were really good," Alfano said. "I think they were happy to be at a horse show. It was a nice show, despite the bad weather on the second day. It was good to go there after the break from Devon, and they'll be ready for Lake Placid."

SBS Farms will compete next at the Lake Placid Horse Show. For more information, please visit http://www.thebtrc.org.
