Trainer & Jockey Jumping

Trainers, jockeys and ex-jockeys compete in teams in the inaugural Trainer & Jockey Calcutta during the Thoroughbred Classic Horse Show on Dec. 14, 2013 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, California, U.S.A. The winners were team 4 - trainers. Many of the riders had little or no jumping experience, while others were once top-level riders, but the crowd was supportive of everyone in the spirit of raising awareness of off-track Thoroughbreds. All of these horses are Thoroughbreds, including grade 1 winners Georgie Boy and Sarafan. The ex-jockeys are Janell Lehman-Lerille, Shelly McGrath, David Nuesch, Jack Stack, Joe Steiner and Barbie Thompson. The current jockeys are Julien Couton, Sophie Doyle, Edwin Maldonado, Joy Scott, Kayla Stra and Chantal Sutherland. The trainers are Janet Armstrong, Matt Chew, Adam Kitchingman, Emily Mode, Kristin Mulhall, Carl O'Callaghan and John Sadler. The only rider not pictured is trainer Sandi Gann, who rode Sarafan.
