Boyd Martin has four horses in the top 10 after Stable View Advanced dressage, including top-placed Shamwari 4. The 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding, owned by the Shamwari 4 Syndicate, has been on the DL since his 12th place finish at Kentucky last year and we’re glad to see him back out at the Advanced level — and in fine form, from judging from his score of 24.9. In her “By the Numbers” predictions for the event, EN Maggie noted that Shamwari’s average dressage score over the past three calendar years was a 30.8, so he’s well out in front of that!

Additionally, Boyd sits 6th on Blackfoot Mystery, 9th on Crackerjack (Maggie’s pick to win) and 10th on Tsetserleg.
One more Boyd note: He is leading an Advanced course walk at 3 p.m. on Saturday. For a $10 donation, you can find out how he plans to ride the course, with all proceeds to benefit The Cumbee Center to Assist Abused Persons.
The next two spots on the leaderboard belong to West Coast ladies Heather Morris with Charlie Tango (25.4) and Tamra Smith with Wembly (26.0). Congrats and best of luck to all competitors this weekend! If you’re following remotely, check EN Saturday morning for live stream info.
