Edited press release from the Las Vegas National Horse Show



While it may be a different story on the casino floor, Kaitlin Campbell has found a lot of luck in the show ring in Las Vegas. The 32-year-old claimed back-to-back victories on Wednesday, November 15, at the Las Vegas National CSI4*-W, held at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa. 

Campbell’s first win of the day came aboard Palina de l’Escaut (Perigueux x Gardeulan) in the $15,000 1.45m CSI4*-W Las Vegas National “Lucky Sevens” Two-Phase Stake, presented by Human Touch. She then immediately followed it up with victory in the $8,000 1.35m CSI4*-W Blenheim EquiSports “Three of a Kind” Speed Classic, presented by Charles Ancona, for the second year in a row aboard Sun Warrior (Flexible x Fasolt).

In the Two-Phase Stake, Campbell and “Palina” were the 14th of 29 entries to take on the Olaf Petersen-designed course, and they blazed over the five-obstacle speed phase in a Formula-1-fast 21.09 seconds.

That time narrowly edged out Tuesday’s winner, Katie Laurie, who ultimately finished in second place with a time of 21.99 seconds aboard Cera Caruso (Casall x Capone), owned by Carissa McCall. Rounding out the top three with a time of 22.52 seconds was Ireland’s Conor Swail riding Vital Chance de La Roque (Diamant de Semilly x Rivage du Poncel), owned by Mannon Farm.

“She’s a super-fast horse, so she does well in indoor rings because it kind of slows her down a little bit,” explained Campbell, who has been partnered with the 14-year-old Hanoverian mare, owned by SWS Training & Sales, for the past five years. “I went into this class knowing that this is definitely a class that she could win, and I went for it today.”
