North Salem, NY – October 15, 2016 – If you missed all of the excitement, thrills, spills and glory of this year’s American Gold Cup CSI4*, held just last month at Old Salem Farms in North Salem, NY, you’ve got a chance to relive the magic again this weekend. This year’s intense heart pounding class will be broadcast to a world-wide audience on NBC Sports Network this Sunday, October 16 at 1:30 p.m.
If you couldn’t make your way to Old Salem Farm for this year’s $216,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping New York, or you missed the webcast on the day of the event, here’s your chance to watch and relive the magic of two completely in-synch athletes at the very top of their game. The high-flying Gazelle and the number two ranked rider in the world, Kent Farrington, mastered what turned out to be a challenging and very tricky course and stormed to the Sunday afternoon victory in front of a near sell-out crowd on the grass in North Salem, New York.
Farrington, by the way, was a vital member of the United States’ silver medal winning Show Jumping squad in Rio de Janeiro this summer.
Watch the exciting show jumping as the world’s best riders compete for one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious trophies, the 47 year-old American Gold Cup, as NBC Sports Network presents the $216,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping New York this Sunday at 1:30pm.
