For the second week in a row, Shane Sweetnam of Ireland won the bonus money in the SSG ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion held at the KentuckyHorsePark in Lexington, KY.
In the final event of the promotion, the Kentucky Hunter Jumper Horse Show held August 22 to 26, Sweetnam won the $10,000 Hagyard Welcome Stake. In addition to his share of the prize money, Sweetnam was awarded a cash bonus of $4,000 for wearing SSG ‘Digital’ Riding Gloves on his way to victory riding Sweet Oak Farm’s Solerina.
“The ‘Go Clean for the Green’ program gives back to the sport, which is great to see and is really appreciated,” said Sweetnam. “The money truly is a bonus!”
Sweetnam earned a total of $6,000 in bonus money in one week’s time. On August 17, he had picked up a $2,000 bonus after winning the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic with a double clear performance aboard Amaretto D’Arco. Added to the $4,000 bonus for his win in the $10,000 Hagyard Welcome Stake, Sweetnam has been handsomely rewarded for his loyalty to the SSG ‘Digital’ brand of riding gloves.
“The gloves are very comfortable, and perfect in any riding condition,” Sweetnam said.
The Kentucky Hunter Jumper Horse Show marked the sixth and final event in the SSG ‘Go Clean for the Green’ promotion held throughout the 2012 season at the Kentucky Horse Park, which offered a total of $30,000 in bonus money in the Open Jumper and Junior Jumper divisions.
