It’s just over a week until the first horse inspection, and the entry list at the 2022 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event has shrunk, with the latest withdrawal coming from Boyd Martin, who will not bring his 2021 Maryland 5 Star winner On Cue.
Keep checking back to this story for updates on withdrawals. Here’s the current entry list.
Updated April 25
Will Faudree (Mama’s Magic Way) - Faudree still has Pfun competing at Kentucky, but “Mason” is headed to Badminton.
Ariel Grald (Leamore Master Plan) - Grald is headed to Badminton with “Simon.”
Lillian Heard (LCC Barnaby) - Heard is headed to Badminton with the gelding.
Buck Davidson (Jak My Style) - Buck has swapped Jak My Style to the CCI4*-S division.
Emily Hamel (Corvett) - Hamel is off the waitlist and headed to England for her first Badminton.
Boyd Martin (On Cue) - On April 16, Martin posted on his Facebook page: “Sadly we’ve decided to withdraw On Cue from this year’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. Cue pulled up a little sore in training, and we’ve decided that it would be better to save her for another day. This is a heartbreaking call as I really felt that she had a big chance of being very competitive this year. As always, I’m grateful for Chris, Tommie, and TJ [Turner, her owners] for their support through the highs and lows with this magnificent mare.”
Lauren Nicholson (Vermiculus) - Nicholson still has “Bug” on the entry list, but had planned to go to Badminton (England). She posted on her Facebook page that the gelding had a swollen ankle but no lameness, so she decided to err on the side of caution and reroute to Luhmühlen (Germany) in June. He’ll contest just the dressage at Kentucky.
Will Coleman (Tight Lines)
Joe Meyer (Johnny Royale)
Josephine Schnaufer-Völkel (Pasadena 217)
