Jennifer Waxman Shines In The Junior Hunters At Kentucky Summer Classic… Lisa Mills reports for PhelpsSports.com
Lexington, Kentucky – August 4, 2006 – Friday’s Junior Hunter classes at the Kentucky Summer Classic were greeted by a welcome break from the week’s suffocating heat.
Following on the heels of her great win at Junior Hunter Finals, Jennifer Waxman and Sister Parish took home a tri-color in the Large Junior Hunters, 15 and under. Waxman, from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and Sister Parish were Grand Junior Hunter Champions at the Show Circuit Magazine/USEF National Junior Hunter Championships–East Coast.
Making it a clean sweep in the Younger Large Juniors, Waxman also captured the reserve championship spot with Saloon. On Friday, Waxman and Saloon were stand-outs in a challenging handy hunter class and, with a score of 85, was one of only two riders in her division scoring in the 80s.
“Jennifer leases both horses from Whitney Roper,” explained her trainer, Emily Smith. “So it’s kind of like having siblings. And she absolutely loves both horses,” Smith continued. “After some time off, it’s nice to see Sister Parish back in the ring going well with Jennifer.”
“It’s truly a privilege to have such wonderful horses,” said Waxman. “And they both are so much fun to ride.”
Katherine Newman and Corvette Z dominated the Small Junior Hunter 15 and Under division, putting a championship ribbon on the banner with an impressive 40 point total. Rachel Udelson aboard Gold Krone earned the reserve championship.
St. Cloud and Emily Jones shone in the Large Junior 16-17 division, winning the championship with 28 points, while Henry Pfeiffer piloted Manchineel to the Small Junior Hunter 16-17 championship.
It will be a tight race in the WIHS jumper phase on Saturday with the top three riders separated by a point each after the hunter phase. Coming into the jumper phase in the top three spots are Katherine Newman, Emily VanderWalde and Hillary McNerney.
Competition resumes tomorrow with the Amateur Owner and Pony Hunters, as well as a $25,000 Grand Prix at a new time of 6:30 p.m.
