Becky Holder hasn’t missed a beat with Courageous Comet’s retirement, as Can’t Fire Me put in a beautiful test, reminiscent of his stablemate, to sit in second with 44.2.

Everyone on the Live Blog was raving about the lovely Ballylaffin Bracken and Kristin Schmolze.  The horse is still a bit green at this level, but you can see his potential as he stepped up to score a 53.7 to tie for 6th.

    I was cleaning and packing for our trip to Rolex when this horse cantered into the ring. His halt and trot off were so good I stopped to watch the whole ride. Nicholson is someone for all to emulate. His seat and subtle use of aides is remarkable. Joe was so elastic…. I thought Becky’s horse just might hedge him on Submission.

    I’d love to know what Becky received on her shoulder-ins. Even from the angle the camera was, you could tell they were not even close to 3 tracks.
