Jung Dominates Day 1 Of Rolex Kentucky Dressage

Lexington, Ky.—April 23

It’s the end of Day 1 of dressage here at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, and Germany’s Michael Jung is leading with Fischerrocana FST with a 39.3. Is anyone surprised? Probably not, since he’s won Olympic gold, FEI World Equestrian Games gold and FEI European Championships gold. 

And one of those WEG medals came from this very facility, at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, which he won with La Biosthetique Sam FBW.

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.

Rolex Cross-Country: What Happened Where

PARK TRADER and Buck Davidson had a beautiful round, taking the inside turn at the Water Park at fence 5, making the Park Question at fence 7 look easy, jumping easily through fence 9 the Frog Pond the fast way and showing riders how to angle the Offset Brushes at 16AB. He took the right side rails at the Head of the Lake (18AB-19ABC), with Park Trader looking a second at the corner in the water but making it over easily to finish just 6 seconds outside the optimum time.

BELLANY ROCK and Selena O’Hanlon had a runout at the corner in the Head of Lake, 19C.
