Kachemak Bay Named Omega Alpha Canadian Event Horse of the Month
Ottawa, ON, Canada
Karl Slezak and Kachemak Bay
The Canadian Eventing Committee has named Kachemak Bay as Omega Alpha Canadian Event Horse of the Month for May.

Kachemak Bay, Frankie Simpson's 15-year-old Canadian Thoroughbred gelding, finished as the top Canadian entry, in fourth place, at the 2009 edition of the Jersey Fresh CCI 3* Three Day Event, held May 7-10, 2009, in Allentown, New Jersey, USA.

Ridden by Karl Slezak of Tottenham, ON, Kachemak Bay was tied for 20th place after dressage with a score of 63.4. Adding only 4.4 cross country time faults following a flawlessly ridden performance over John Williams' (USA) cross country course, Slezak and Kachemak Bay leaped up the leaderboard to fourth place. A clean ride in the show jumping round kept the pair in fourth place, finishing on a score of 67.8.

"I'm so proud of both Kachemak Bay (Zeus) and Karl. They really are a fantastic team, and I am so pleased with their results this year," said Simpson, who lives in Orangeville, ON. "Zeus is a really cool little horse with a larger than life personality, and he really does live to event. Hopefully the pair will have many great things to come. I'd like to give a big thank you to Omega Alpha and the Canadian Eventing Committee for recognizing these fantastic horses every month. This award is a really nice gesture to the horses, riders and owners."
