One Spun At Final Rolex Jog, 39 To Jump Later

Apr 30, 2017 - 10:07 AM

Lexington, Ky.—April 30

Thirty-nine horses will show jump this afternoon at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****. Forty horses presented for the final horse inspection this morning in front of ground jury members Christina Klingspor, Nick Burton and David Lee.

Two pairs did not present—Lauren Kieffer withdrew Vermiculus and Jolie Wentworth withdrew GoodKnight.

Kieffer explained on her Facebook page that Vermiculus was muscle sore after a slip at the Head Of The Lake yesterday. 

Three horses were held—Lillian Heard’s Share Option, Ellen Doughty-Hume’s Sir Oberon and Doug Payne’s Vandiver. Vandiver did not pass upon reinspection.

Show jumping begins at 1 p.m.
