Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 6  

Riders faced a big choice in the second—and final—jumping round of the ASPCA Maclay Final.

Nicola Philippaerts Places First In Tryon $380,000 Rolex Grand Prix CSI*****

Mill Spring, N.C.—Oct. 22

He’d watched Jessica Springsteen blaze around the short course with Cynar VA in 41.29 seconds, and so his plan wasn’t complicated, but it also wasn’t easy. He needed to go clear, and he needed to go fast.
