- Classic Company and the Gulf Coast Classic Company in partnership with Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc. makers of Adequan® i.m. (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), announce the formation of the Adequan® Pre Green Classics and year end Adequan® Pre Green Sweepstakes.
Bob Bell, President of Classic Company, said, “We’ve created a new series of Pre Green Hunter Classics to be held at all our events in 2012, dubbed the Adequan® Pre Green Classics. They will run as normal, held each week as two round events with the second ride of the second day counting as the first round of the Classic. The Adequan® Pre Green Championship Classic will be a standalone two round event.”
One of the key differences in these Pre Green Hunter Classics will be the entry fees. Bell explained, “All the entry fees will be collected just as in the past, but these monies will be set aside to build the Sweepstakes bank, which will be offered at the Atlanta Fall Classic II, November 16th. The Classic Company will host the Adequan® Pre Green Hunter Championship Sweepstakes for the top 20 horses, based on accumulated Championship points, to compete for the total Sweepstakes money.”
Allyn Mann, Senior Manager for Luitpold Pharmaceuticals said of the relationship with Classic Company, “The Classic Company and Bob Bell have done a wonderful job developing this circuit. We are excited to continue our relationship with Mr. Bell and support all of the horse owners, trainers and riders who participate at these venues”.
Bell shared that based on the 2011 entry numbers the finale Sweepstakes’ prize purse could easily be over $15,000 and believes the added enthusiasm for this new series could push the total upwards of $20,000. Caroline Hogan, Sales rep for Adequan®, added her thoughts on the new series, “Anytime we can create opportunities to increase the purse money for an event, it is a big deal for the horse owner. We are very excited and look forward to presenting the winner of this Sweepstakes with a nice sum of money”.
