McGrath and Dobbs Win Final Events of the 26th Annual I Love New York Horse Show

Lake Placid, NY—July 6, 2003—Cindy McGrath won the Price Chopper Adult Amateur Jumper Classic and Hillary Dobbs won the WIHS Children’s Jumper Classic to close the 26th annual I Love New York Horse Show.

McGrath was one of eight entries from the field of 56 to reach the tiebreaking jump-off by riding without penalty over 16-jump, first-round course at the North Elba Showgrounds. She then rode Euro Pass to the fastest fault-free ride over the seven-jump jump-off course, finishing with a time of 32.979 seconds to claim the win.

Dobbs topped a field of 44 entries to win her class on Lucky Four. The daughter of CNN’s Lou Dobbs was one of 10 to reach the jump-off with a fault-free first-round ride. She completed the jump-off fault-free in 32.118 seconds to take the win.

Both of these Classics were member events of the WIHS Championship series and count as bonus points towards the Championships to be held at the Washington International Horse Show in October.
