Darragh Kenny and V Power Win the $2000 1.30m class Week Ten at the Winter Equestrian Festival
Written by: Lindsay McCall Client:North Star Ventures of East Aurora Release Date:2010-03-24
Wellington, FL and East Aurora, NY- March 24, 2010- Darragh Kenny piloted North Star Ventures of East Aurora LLC’s V Power to two big wins during Week Ten of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, FL, March 17-21. The pair not only topped the seventy-five horse field in the $2000 1.30m, but also the fifty-three horse field in the $1,500 YJC 7/8 year-old Championship Qualifier. In addition to showing with Kenny, V Power also competes in the Junior Jumpers with Charlotte Jacobs.
Purchased by North Star Ventures of East Aurora LLC in November of 2009, V Power has been a valuable addition to the Jacobs’ string of horses. Kenny has worked with the eight-year-old gelding since his arrival, and remarked, “While the horse is still young and needs a little bit of training, he is fantastic! He has great scope and is super careful. When I took him in the 7/8 year-old YJC this last week V Power did not knock a thing down. He has a big stride, and we are always leaving strides out where everyone else puts one in. Lastly, I love how this horse turns he can turn back really short with no problem.”
Kenny and Jacobs will share the ride on V Power over the course of the next two weeks at WEF. Jacobs trains with John Brennan and Missy Clark of North Run, both of whom are looking forward to V Power’s future with Jacobs. North Star Ventures of East Aurora LLC finish out WEF in Wellington, FL, before heading back to East Aurora, NY, for the summer.
