    Default Rolex Entries Closed!

    Entries for Rolex have closed! What does everyone think about the list (though I am sure a few haven't gotten in)? Pick any winners so far...?

    I will be cheering on my buddy Brittany Lunney and Cool Dancer!

    Badminton is closed as well. Some of the same horses on both, I believe.

    I love the horse Kildrodan Abbott. I want to take him home and let him give me pony rides..lol.
    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.
    Sorry my thoroughbreds

    Is Phillip Dutton planning to do a 4* with his Mystery Whisper before the Olympics? OR does he just figure that they've got a team spot locked and double locked?

    Other than that question, Rolex has a really great group this year, especially if all the people from across the pond come. Anticipation is building FAST! Clayton Fredericks bringing back Ben Along Time is quite interesting. I loved that horse when he won Rolex five or six or more years ago.

    Don't think it's final/updated list.

    I'm confused. How can a rider/horse combination be on the Olympic trial list if one of them or the combination has never completed a 4 star and expect to have any consideration for making the team?
    Sorry, I really am not sure how the entire process works, but can't imagine the other top counties even considering to send a pair who don't have a lot of experience at the highest level.

    The qualifications are as a combination horse/rider must complete a CCI****
    or CCI*** plus a CIC***
    Philip has lots of choices to get that done both here (NA) and in Europe.
    Fair Hill, Jersey, Bromont, Tattersalls, Branham, Saumur, Ballindenisk.
    Sinead is already qualified.

    The list is probably not final. Usuallly names are added and changed.

    This isn't normal HT or Badminton where they are near their limits of entries.

    Near? Hell, there is a waiting list! No such issue for rolex.

    I've know Brittany since she was a little kid (hell, she is STILL a little kid to me) doing novice. I will be cheering for her (and Barb Crabo - gotta root for the left coast/mountain folks).

    Thanks I am new at this, hoping more names are added, not like it is not an impressive list of course.

    This is not the final list. Boyd is definitely going.

    As a jumper person I will be wishing Marylin Little-Meredith a lot of luck. This must be her first **** .
    I found the perfect distance but they put the jump in the wrong place.

    Phillip has said Mystery Whisper will go to Jersey Fresh. Michael Pollard is set to run 2, Boyd is said to run 3. And I'm sure there are a few others. Thus far, the list looks good. In all honesty, I wouldn't be surprised if a Brit wins again this year. They wouldn't dare spend the money if they weren't coming to win.
