Oldwick, NJ – After another successful Rolex Kentucky CCI4* presented by Bridgestone, where Peak Performance client Karen O’Connor jump to fourth place with Mr. Medicott, the attention of B.W. Furlong and Associates now turns to the next Selection Trial for the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team: the 2012 Jersey Fresh CCI and CIC. The 10th edition of the event runs May 10-13, please visit: http://www.horseparkofnewjersey.com/ for more information including details about tailgating.
Several top combinations, including our clients Buck Davidson (who has been on the injured reserve with a broken collarbone this spring) and BallyNoe Castle RM (owned by Carl and Cassie Segal) will be contesting the CCI3*. Sinead Halpin will contest the CIC3* with her top Olympic hopeful, Manior De Carneville.
The CCI2* will give horses and riders a chance to become eligible for the Jersey Fresh “High Performance Challenge”. Sponsored by B.W. Furlong and Associates, $25,000 will be awarded to the horse and rider combination that wins the Jersey Fresh CCI2* in 2012 and goes on to win the Jersey Fresh CCI3* in 2013. The cash prize will be split between the rider and the owner.
Started last year by Dr. Brendan Furlong, the CCI2* winner in 2011 was Lisa Marie Ferguson and Smart Move. Devastatingly Smart Move was killed in an accident on the road after he got loose in Wellington, FL and was hit by a car. In his honor, B.W. Furlong and Associates will plant a tree at the New Jersey Horse Park to commemorate this wonderful horse.
B.W. Furlong and Associates will also provide treating veterinary services for the competition, and make sure to visit the Furlong’s Healthy Horse booth to learn about exciting, cost saving opportunities for our clients. Breakfast and refreshments will be served for grooms and riders in the same place as previous years, in the B.W. Furlong and Associates tent just outside the stabling compound.
