Leesburg, Va.—Oct. 5
Hot off a win at the Plantation Field International CCI4*-S (Pennsylvania), Colleen Rutledge and Covert Rights captured the Morven Park CCI4*-S this morning with a clear cross-country round right on the optimum time of 6 minutes 17 seconds.
Rutledge and “CR,” a 13-year-old Thoroughbred-Clydesdale cross (BFF Incognito—Let’s Get It Right, Covert Operation) have won at Morven Park before, in 2014 and 2017, and they led after dressage this weekend.
Two rails dropped them to seventh, but with the withdrawal of several riders after show jumping yesterday due to planned combined tests or the firm ground, Rutledge moved ahead.
