Clark Montgomery Takes The Lead At Blenheim CCI***

Woodstock, England—Sept. 18  

The United States’ Clark Montgomery has taken a commanding lead at lunchtime on the second day of dressage at Blenheim Palace International CCI***.

Riding Holly and William Becker’s Loughan Glen, Montgomery performed a beautiful test for a mark of 33.8—well ahead of Germany’s Sandra Auffarth, who scored 37.2 yesterday on Ispo.

“It’s a difficult test and he usually starts to [tire] as the test goes on, and he did that a little bit to me, but he still did a fairly decent job,” Montgomery said.

Carrabis Z's Clean Round Wins The $215,000 American Gold Cup For Richie Moloney

North Salem, N.Y.—Sept. 14  

You could see Richie Moloney weighing the options. When he came into the jump-off of the $215,000 American Gold Cup CSI-W, there wasn’t a clean round on the scoreboard. But he wasn’t the last to go, so he couldn’t dally.

Moloney pressed Carrabis Z over the first four jumps, making sure he wasn’t wasting the clock But when all the rails were in the cups after that, he eased up a bit and made sure he kept it that way.

Swail Wins It With The Gallop In $85,000 American Gold Cup Qualifier

North Salem, N.Y.—Sept. 11  

I kept turning to the person next to me and asking, “Was Conor Swail really that fast?”

He’d gone early in the 12-horse jump-off for the $85,000 American Gold Cup Qualifier and looked slick, but definitely beatable to an observing eye.

Throwback Thursday: Sara Kozumplik Murphy Just Kept Kicking To The Biggest Cross-Country Jump She's Ever Seen

Sara Kozumplik Murphy laughs softly as she recalls what went through her mind walking up to the Burghley Bounce Bank in 2002.

“You have to remember, I was really young then, so honestly, everything about Burghley was a bit overwhelming!” she said. “That fence was absolutely enormous and to this day it’s the biggest thing I’ve ever seen on a cross-country course, and I have a lot more experience now."
