Hampton Classic 2012 Grand Prix Sunday- Society-In-Focus to Photograph!

Hey everyone!  Sorry I haven’t had a chance to write much lately…this past month has been crazy busy (in a good way), but I wanted to take a few minutes to update you on what we’ve got coming up!

First of all, can you believe the summer is almost over?!  Where did the time go?!  While we are all sad to soon be saying goodbye to the warm weather and the parties under the tents, we still have one more big Hamptons event lined up!

The 37th annual Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton runs through Sunday, September 2 and features world-class show jumping competition, as well as magnificent shopping and a variety of entertainment attractions.  The Classic features six show rings with more than 100 classes of competition for horses and riders of all ages.  A wide range of jumper, hunter, equitation, short stirrup and leadline classes are all part of the Classic’s schedule, as well as competitions for riders with disabilities.

The highlight of the Hampton Classic is the $250,000 FTI Grand Prix and FEI World Cup™ Qualifier on Sunday, September 2 and Society-In-Focus will be there to capture all the goings-on in the VIP tent, especially the crazy hats!  The Grand Prix, open to horses that successfully complete Friday’s $50,000 Spy Coast Farm/Young Horse Show Series Grand Prix Qualifier, features Olympians, World Champions and other show jumping veterans, such as defending champion and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist McLain Ward.  This year, the Grand Prix is part of the new Taylor Harris Triple Crown Challenge which awards a $200,000 bonus should the same horse-and-rider combination win the $100,000 Wells Fargo Grand Prix of Devon, $250,000 FTI Grand Prix at the Hampton Classic, and $250,000 Alltech Grand Prix at the Alltech National Horse Show.  Ward won the Wells Fargo Grand Prix of Devon on Antares F in May and now stands to win the $200,000 bonus should he ride Antares F to wins in the remaining two events in the Taylor Harris Triple Crown Challenge.
