Reading the announcement on Derbycross in Florida in March.
Sounds like fun, I recall the ones that were held a few years back!
It is unfortunate they haven't been able to truly bring together the 'Top Eventers' in the country to participate
Where's Boyd Martin, Hawley Bennett, Stephanie Rhodes-Bosch, Kim Severson??
Would have been great to see some of the top finishers from Rolex and WEG brought out for this public event
Sure there are some of the riders that competed at both but very few of the top riders!

I have a feeling that it has to do (in part) with the fact that the event is being held in Wellington. I would imagine that not everyone wants to have to ship one horse to Wellington for Derbycross, especially since it happens during Sporting Days.

Looks like a pretty qualified line up to me!

Many riders winter in the Carolina's, Philip, Boyd and Kim to name a few are in Aiken. So from there they have multiple events in Aiken, Pine Top, The Fork, FENCE, The Ark and Southern Pines in a ~2 hour radius.

Boyd will be there - he's the announcer!
