No sun? No problem. At least that was the case for the opening day of the Manhattan Mortgage Company's 31st Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show which debuted in grand fashion despite overcast skies and spotty rain showers Sunday in Bridgehampton.

The $150,000 Prudential Financial Grand Prix takes place at 2 p.m. next Sunday in the Grand Prix Ring. The Grand Prix is a qualifying event helping to determine which U.S. riders will qualify to ride in the 2007 FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas next April.

On Saturday, the eighth annual $10,000 Wölffer Estate Equitation Championship takes place along with the $20,000 5-year-old and $30,000 6-year-old Young Jumper Championship Finals, the $25,000 Sotheby's International Realty Challenge Cup, the $15,000 WGHR Farm Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic and the Pony Hunter Classic. The Jumper Ring also features the USEF Zone 2 Medal Championship and the Marshall & Sterling Adult Amateur and Children's Jumper Classics.
