Riders Announced For 2003 Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon Presented By Outback Steakhouse

WELLINGTON, FL (February 24, 2003) — This year marks the third annual Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon presented by Outback Steakhouse, and the event continues to attract the superstars of equestrian sport. The select 12 who will compete in this year’s Triathlon have been announced – the dressage riders are Lynda Alicki, Bent Jensen, Ashley Holzer, and Betsy Steiner; the show jumpers are Nona Garson, Chris Kappler, Candice King, and Todd Minikus; and the polo players are Mike Azzaro, Mariano Aguerre, Adolfo Cambiaso, and Adam Snow. The riders will compete against each in four teams, with one representative of each discipline on each team. Teams will be announced when the final line-ups are confirmed. The event will be held on Monday, March 10, 2003, at Outback Polo in West Palm, Florida, starting at noon. Admission is free.

The Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon is a fun event that allows riders to showcase their horsemanship skills in disciplines not their own. In this three-phase competition, the polo players and jumpers will ride a dressage test to music; the dressage riders and polo players will jump a Gambler’s Choice course; and then each team will play two chukkers of polo. The team that accumulates the highest number of total points from all three phases wins the Triathlon.

In previous years, the Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon was held as a charity fundraiser with a gate charge, but this year, admission is free. Sidelines and Tim Gannon of Outback are holding the 2003 event as a way to give back to the equestrian community. Lunch by Outback Steakhouse will be provided at a nominal fee. Tim Gannon, a lifelong polo player and one of the three founding members of Outback Steakhouse and Carabas restaurant chains, has donated hisprivate polo club for the Triathlon every year, and continues to be thepresenting sponsor as well as the event’s lunch concessionaire.
