    I thought the early part of Jessica's round with Vindicat looked a little bumpy. But then they settled down.

    Be interested to see how her jump off goes.

    Loved Uceko!!

    Yikes. Bad luck for Jessica. Cool looking horse though.

    I gasped out loud when Jessie and Vindicat fell. Hope they're both all right.

    I've noticed several horses slipping or tripping.. looks like the footing isn't as great as it could be.

    My reaction was "Oh look there goes $XX,XXX,XXX...... Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Hope he's insured."

    Happy for Kent that's a big win for him.

    We were there. I think the footing was great and worked between riders. But many were turning very tight and fast at the same spot. Vindicat decided he would take a courtesy jump backwards too. Love Lansdowne and his second place! I thought he had been purchased for Yann Candele to ride but glad he is back with his Irish rider. Disappointed that neither Ian or Yann rode last night.
    Also congratulations to Jill and George for their awards. And George made it to the award presentation! Very nervous for sure.
    The interesting part of the afternoon was watching a rider get a lesson from her coach as she was riding one of Olivier P's horses and getting advice from Olivier, Nicola AND McLain Ward!! What an experience!
