- Rising talent took center stage in the Rolex Stadium at the Kentucky Spring Classic, with Emanuel Andrade and Carboni 3 taking home a victory in the High Junior Jumpers. Victoria Colvin took home the second place award with Chanel B2, but earlier in the day she bested some of the best professionals in the business during a 1.45m Open Jumpers aboard Ruby.

For the High Junior Jumper class, course designer Michel Vaillancourt tested riders with a course similar to Thursday night's Hagyard Lexington Classic. Only seven riders advanced to the tiebreaker, and only three riders produced a second clear effort.

The first to do so were Colvin and Chanel B2, owned by Karen Long Dwight of New Vernon, NJ. The pair jumped all the fences with ease and set the time to beat at 32.415 seconds. Sophie Simpson of Royal Palm Beach, FL, tried to catch her aboard Why Not, but a slower time of 34.175 seconds would only be good enough for third place.

Towards the end of the class, Hayley Barnhill attempted to catch the leaders with Zephire, owned by Cara Cheska of Waukesha, WI, but the young rider fell just short of the top times with a clear round in 34.838 seconds. Barnhill took home the third place award, while Vale picked up second, and Colvin topped the leader board.

"I didn't really watch any. I wasn't planning on going very fast, but from one to two I was really tight," explained Colvin. "It was just neat. We weren't running, but we had some tight turns."

Colvin added, "Ruby might be the one I show at [the North American Junior & Young Rider Championships], so we had to get the certificate in the 1.45m. She's really easy. This is only my third time riding her. She's very big, so she covers the ground really well and doesn't make you feel like you are jumping high. It's nice to be able to compete in the bigger classes."

The High Amateur-Owner Jumpers wrapped up the day in the Rolex Stadium.  Hayley Gassel of Lenoir City, TN, had all the answers with Quite Dark 2, taking a three second lead during the eight-horse jump-off with a clear time of 33.146 seconds for the victory. Jennifer O'Neil of Quebec, Canada, scored the second and third place ribbons with Zoltaire and Unex Valente, respectively, posting double clear efforts with both mounts.
