Courageous Comet may only be 10 years old, but he answered all the questions on cross-country day, April 29, better than many of his elders. He and Becky Holder flew into the lead early in the morning by finishing on their dressage score of 43.7 points.
“I kind of feel like Cinderella at the ball,” said a bedazzled Holder. “I’m waiting to turn back into a pumpkin.”
This is this combination’s second start at Kentucky, but they didn’t finish because of a foot problem in 2004.
