    Default Rolex + Kentucky Cups

    I got the email. I'm lusting for the six days in April.

    Sort of like the WEG, but a lot cheaper.

    Who else is pointing for that?

    I'm actually kind of dreading the WEG now.
    Rolex should be so good!
    We're spending our money on horses and bourbon. The rest we're just wasting.

    Me! Already booked a room (for now) but will not commit to purchase Rolex tix until the March deadline. I am coming from the NYC area. It will depend on the cost of air fare, how busy it will be at my job and what my finances will be at that time given what an awful year it's been so far (Limited O/T and bonus). So I hope and keep my fingers crossed Otherwise, I will be purchasing the Live Feed webcast they've offered these past few years.

    I must not be on the "in" list. What are you talking about?

    It's like a mini-WEG. The WEG dressage test goes from Tues. April 20-Thurs. April 22.

    The Rolex serves as the WEG eventing test and goes at its regular time, Thurs. thru Sun. April 22-25.

    The WEG show jumping test is Fri.thru Sun. April 23-25. (If you're wondering, it's 7-10 P.M.)

    It should be a WILD week.

    Here is the schedule:
    http://www.rk3de.org/event_schedule.html

    AND all of the dressage except the freestyle is fee free. The ticket for the freestyle is only $15 bucks.

    For show jumping the big event Saturday night is $25, and the Speed Test on Sunday evening is $15. Friday night's SJ Warmup is free.
    http://www.rk3de.org/testevents.html

    Since everything starts with dressage on Tuesday and one would leave either late Sunday or Monday, I'm thinking about a solid week in Lexington.

    Winner's Circle doesn't start taking reservations for Rolex week until January 1, 2010.

    Now what we need to know is whether the Equestrian Club and the Patrons Club also cover the WEG tests in dressage and SJ.

    Wow! Looks like fun for all. Perhaps I will round up friends of all disciplines. My husband would overdose by Tuesday at noon.

    Actually, the Grand Prix Show Jumping on Saturday night is $20 not $25.
