Several riders chose not to run Derek di Grazia’s cross-country track at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****.
Phillip Dutton, after riding around double clear on Fernhill Eagle, said he would scratch Mighty Nice. However, he later changed his mind and decided to run. “Happy” was 24th after dressage with 57.0 penalty points.
“[I] have reconsidered my decision [and] will run Mighty Nice [cross-country] after all,” said Dutton on his Facebook page. “The weather has held out, the footing is perfect and he’s fit and ready.”
Jan Bynny, 13th after dressage, withdrew Inmidair.
Sarah Cousins withdrew her Tsunami. They were tied for 30th after dressage with 60.2 penalty points.
Canadian Jessica Phoenix withdrew her Exponential after receiving 65.5 penalty points in dressage.
