Anybody watching the Hunter "Derby" from Old Salem?
Wow, I'm really disappointed in the Hunter "Derby" from Old Salem. It's just another ring class. Everybody draaaaggging around. Been looking forward to it all week, ass-uming it would be on the GP course, but it's not. It's very dull.

Tha Ridge - Skyfall and Salto Mortale 2nd and 3rd, Wonderland was jumping UNREAL but something must have happened in the half of the round I didn't see, scored 65s.
I was pleasantly surprised with the scores on Skyfall. Jumped great over the oxer near the gate, landed and played quite a bit and still got great scores. Definitely should have been on the field, but I like the course (especially the handy) better than in past years.
However, the fact that it's 7pm and just starting the second round is inconsiderate to riders/trainers, the ring was empty from 11:30-4 and it definitely should have gone earlier... show has ended around 6:30-7 most days this week
