May 20, 2012 – Lexington, KY – The luck of the Irish was with Richie Moloney as he claimed an $8,000 bonus in the SSG Riding Gloves ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion while winning the $75,000 CSI2* Mary Rena Murphy Grand Prix on Saturday night, May 19, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY.

In the weekly High Junior Jumper Classic, a $1,000 bonus is offered. There was no roll-over this week, however, as Abigail McArdle claimed her second consecutive bonus check with Cosma 20, an eight-year-old Hannoverian mare. For the second week in a row, McArdle of Barrington, IL, posted the only clear round to win the $10,000 Junior Jumper High Classic.
