SBS Farms Collects Championships at Saugerties, Saratoga, and Wins Handy Round at Wachovia Showplace Spring Spectacular II

Buffalo, NY - June 24, 2008 - Jennifer Alfano with SBS Farms of Buffalo, NY, has done very well over the past few weeks at shows such as HITS-on-the-Hudson in Saugerties, NY, Saratoga Classic and Wachovia Showplace Spring Spectacular II.

At Saugerties, during the week of June 4-8, 2008, Jennifer was Reserve Champion on horse The Specialist, who is owned by Meredith Lipke-Bartolone. He was really on his game, collecting three seconds and a seventh in the First Year Green Hunter division.

"He was really good. I couldn't have asked for more, he was just great," said Alfano.

Saratoga was next on their list of competitions, where they did great as well. The Specialist was Reserve Champion again with Alfano, making this the second horse show in a row with a Reserve Championship.

South Beach is a fairly new horse for SBS Farms. He has been with SBS for only a month, and before Saratoga, he had only been to two shows. He was Champion in the Pre-Green 3' Hunters, where he shined. South Beach is for sale, but future plans for him include moving up to some of the larger divisions next year.

"He is still very, very green but he just keeps getting better and better as he goes," said Alfano.

At the Wachovia Showplace Spring Spectacular, Alfano placed extremely well in the $10,000 ASG/USHJA International Hunter Derby. On Jersey Boy, Jennifer received a third place finish overall and won the Handy round.

"The Derby was great. All horses did really well, especially Jersey Boy. He has done maybe three or four Derby classes before this one," Alfano said. "I like the Derbies because each one is different, each has their own style. They did a beautiful job at Lamplight, the jumps were gorgeous, and the course was great. I think they did a really nice job. I had a lot of fun."

Next on the list of shows for SBS is Lake Placid, where they will stay a week and compete.
