First Rolex Kentucky Jog Whittles Field By One

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.

King Rules Rolex Kentucky CCI****

When Mary King jumped a double-clear show jumping round aboard Fernhill Urco, she won the Rolex Kentucky CCI****. But King still had one more chance to best her score. Kings Temptress, leading after cross-country, also jumped around flawlessly, giving her rider first and second for the first time in Rolex history.

Despite the pressure of having two horses in the top spots before show jumping, King said she felt relaxed heading into the day.
