April 26—Lexington, Ky.

Boyd Martin knows as well as anyone that Rolex Kentucky is no dressage competition, but it’s still a nice way to start your weekend by winning the first phase on the first day. He trotted into the Thursday lead aboard Remington XXV on 45.3 ahead of Karen O’Connor on Veronica (47.8) and Andrew Nicholson on Calico Joe (48.7).

James C. Wofford Walks The Rolex Kentucky Cross-Country Course

The two-time Rolex Kentucky winner explains the challenges of riding the 2012 course.

First Rolex Kentucky Jog Whittles Field By One

April 25—Lexington, Ky.

The ground jury accepted all but one of the 58 entries presented at this afternoon’s first horse inspection for the Rolex Kentucky CCI****.

Brittany Kart was the unlucky rider to be spun. Her horse Llewellyn was held for re-inspection, and the ground jury did not accept him on his second presentation.

Diana Burnett’s Shigatzi and Kate Hicks’ Belmont were also held, but both passed upon re-inspection.
