Lexington, KY
- With another top placing at the KHJA Horse Show last week, Venezuelan rider Pablo Barrios has furthered his lead in the 2013 Hagyard Challenge Series. He and his talented mount Zara Leandra kicked off the Series by winning the first Hagyard Lexington Classic in May, and they then garnered wins in both the third and fourth events. Most recently, Barrios and Zara Leandra finished second in the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic at the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show, further increasing their lead in the hunt for the $50,000 Hagyard Leading Rider Award.

The Hagyard Challenge Series is a summer-long series of seven show jumping events at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The rider who accumulates the most points in the series will receive a $50,000 Leading Rider Award, presented during the Kentucky National Horse Show in September. The sixth event in the series was held last week at the KHJA Horse Show, running August 21-25. The final event at the Kentucky National Horse Show is just around the corner, and Barrios leads with 1090 points over Ireland's Richie Moloney, who maintains the second place position with 660 points. 

Moloney placed third aboard Alsvid and sixth with Carrabis Z during the Kentucky Summer Classic. He also earned multiple other placings throughout the five series grand prixs held thus far. Junior rider Wilton Porter is currently ranked third after riding to the blue ribbon with Paloubet during the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show.

"It's a nice opportunity for the riders to compete for more money," said Barrios, who took home the title in 2010. "It's a good incentive, and I am definitely trying to win this year. "
