    Both Twizzel and Trading Aces are now listed on the entry list. I think I counted ~50 entries, including all the ones that might end up at Badminton instead.

    They weren't there a couple of hours ago, because I checked carefully before I posted that.

    Anyone notice any other new names?

    They added 12 entries since I first looked earlier today before lunch (I had written them all down to do my usual TB roundup for my blog).

    Happy to see Sal Dali back and Exponential

    (other new horse names: Kilrodan Abbott, Tivoli, Ringwood Mississippi, Pirate, Clifton Lush, Clifton Promise, Catch a Star, and W.E. Master Hill)

    There are currently 53 entries (inlcuding Twizzel and Trading Aces) but at least a handful are Badminton cross-entries.

    So, is 59 entries enough for y'all?

    Yes, I know some of those will be scratched, but I'm guessing just few of the earliest entries - WFP's Cool Mountain & Chili Morning are also entered at Badminton, as are Mary King's Fernhill Urco, & Johnathan Paget's Clifton Promise.
    Colleen Rutledge is pretty high on the waiting list too.

    But, barring illness or injury, it should still be a weekend worth watching!


    Wait, no! I mean, it'll be boring!! Stay away in droves!! (I really like the idea of shorter lines and better views )

    It would be nice to not stand in such a long line at the Red Beans and Rice place. I hope they are there this year. One year I got an awesome Lobster Roll but I have not seen them recently. I also get tired of bodychecking people off the "$5 bins"

    Mary King has three accepted at Badminton. If she comes at all, she'll bring her Rolex entry most probably. He finished second at Rolex last time she came. Her other Badminton entries are more accomplished.

    As opposed to her one that finished first

    That was something to see. Wonder if it'll EVER be duplicated . . .

    And didn't Fernhill Urico lead until sj? I know he was in the lead for a good part of the time.

    She mentioned on the Eventing Radio show that Fernhill Urco was more suited to the shorter distance at Rolex.
