Stats: ge 55, Berkshire, England.

Grass Valley: b. g., 11 years, Irish-bred Irish Sport Horse (Legal Pressure—Connaught Gold, Clover Hill), owned by rider and New Zealand Bloodstock Ltd.

Todd rode Grass Valley to 11th place at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (Ky.) last fall, and they also finished 18th at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton CCI**** (England) in 2010. The previous year they placed 23rd in the Boekelo CCI*** (the Netherlands).

Jimmy’s Prediction: We’re lucky to be able to have the chance to watch the FEI Horseman of the Century compete here this weekend. This pair went well here last year at the WEG, and I am sure they will improve on their last trip around the Park, with a top 10 placing.
