Lexington, Ky. – Aug. 4, 2018 – Sydney Shulman was one of nine horse-and-athlete combinations to re-enter the Rolex Stadium on Saturday night under the lights for the jump-off of the $50,000 Kentucky Summer Grand Prix, sponsored by GGT Footings. Jump-off rider extraordinaire Aaron Vale had set a blistering pace in 37.390 seconds, and although Alex Granato and David Oberkircher had beaten his time, they could not complete the short course fault-free. Enter Shulman on Villamoura as the last combination to challenge Vale. She not only beat his time but beat it by over one second to stop the clock in 36.190 seconds, simultaneously winning the week’s feature class and taking home Leading Rider Award, presented by Envisian Products, LLC.
