If you were hoping to see three-time winner Michael Jung at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event this year, we can sadly confirm that he will not be competing. Michael shared the news on Instagram this morning.

Michael and wonder mare fischerRocana FST won Kentucky for three consecutive years in 2015, 2016 and 2017, before finishing second last year to Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class to end the streak. Rocana joins Winsome Adante and Avebury as the only other horse to win three times at the same five-star venue.

Will Oliver Townend return to Kentucky this year to defend his title? Will an American win the event for the first time since 2008? We are just 64 days away from the first horse inspection. Keep it locked on EN for everything you need to know in the lead-up to Kentucky.
