Rolex Cross-Country: What Happened Where

PARK TRADER and Buck Davidson had a beautiful round, taking the inside turn at the Water Park at fence 5, making the Park Question at fence 7 look easy, jumping easily through fence 9 the Frog Pond the fast way and showing riders how to angle the Offset Brushes at 16AB. He took the right side rails at the Head of the Lake (18AB-19ABC), with Park Trader looking a second at the corner in the water but making it over easily to finish just 6 seconds outside the optimum time.

BELLANY ROCK and Selena O’Hanlon had a runout at the corner in the Head of Lake, 19C.

I’m Not Giving Up On Sinead

Jimmy Wofford shares his musings on the first two days of competition at Rolex Kentucky.

The judging has been very tough, but it seems to be level, and I do not think they’ve been unfair to anyone. The ground juries are starting to judge eventing dressage in terms of dressage, and not all of our horses and riders have satisfied the requirements for good scores yet. Having said that, I was very pleased with the overall attitude of the U.S. riders who are obviously here to compete rather than merely participating.
