Throwback Thursday: Sasquatch Ruled Rolex Kentucky 30 Years Ago

When Rolex Kentucky CCI**** course designer Derek Di Grazia gazes across the rolling fields of the Kentucky Horse Park, his eyes follow the well-worn track of the toughest cross-country course in the United States. 

But if he squints hard enough, he can picture the features and fences long since forgotten from when he galloped across the hallowed grounds in 1985 on Sasquatch and won the three-day event, then a three-star.

It’s been 30 years, but Di Grazia still remembers the joy of his first big win on a dream weekend where everything came together.

One To Watch: Leah Lang-Gluscic Will Represent OTTBs With AP Prime At Rolex Kentucky

“I’m on my own. I’m used to the gypsy lifestyle. I drive all over the country by myself. It’s all good!” said Leah Lang-Gluscic when she answered my phone call while driving to Kentucky from Ocala, Fla.

On her way to the biggest event of her career, the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, Lang-Gluscic’s star has been rising over the last year with her $750 off-the-track Thoroughbred AP Prime. And she’s done it all on her own, logging many miles with the trailer in pursuit of success at the upper levels.

Behind The Stall Door With: Veronica

They say a good mare will give her all for you, and Lauren Kieffer’s four-star partner, Veronica, will do just that…but not without pulling a few faces first.

Kieffer, 27, has been partnered with Team Rebecca LLC’s 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (Pacific—Kimbel, Ferro) since 2013 after she took over the ride from Karen O’Connor.

They won their first three FEI competitions together and went on to become the best placed U.S. pair at last year’s Rolex Kentucky CCI**** in second and placed ninth at the Pau CCI**** (France) in the fall.
