Allentown, N.J. - May 10   

For all the places Ballynoe Castle RM has been around the world with Buck Davidson and all the blue ribbons they’ve brought home, surprisingly, the gelding has never won a CCI at any level.

When Rolex Kentucky CCI**** course designer Derek Di Grazia gazes across the rolling fields of the Kentucky Horse Park, his eyes follow the well-worn track of the toughest cross-country course in the United States.

It’s been 30 years, but Di Grazia still remembers the joy of his first big win on a dream weekend where everything came together.
