Welcome to the live updates for the Ocala Jockey Club International Three Day Event! Scroll down to relive the day’s action.
For those of you who originally saw Jon Holling and Downtown Harrison named the winners of the CIC3*, a dressage scoring re-calculation later showed an error in Matt Brown and Super Socks’s BCF dressage score.
Correcting the dressage scoring error put Jon and Matt on the same score of 46.3. Matt made the optimum time of 6 minutes, 9 seconds, while Jon picked up 1.2 time penalties. As a result, Matt and Super Socks BCF have officially been declared the CIC3* winners, with Jon and Downtown Harrison in second. Stay tuned for the full report.
You couldn’t ask for a better day to run among the Florida live oak trees. It’s 73 degrees with a 6 mph breeze and 47% humidity. The course has been fast and safe throughout the morning. Our fearless leader Jenni Autry is in the field today and will be bringing you full reports and interviews later today, so – as always – keep it locked on EN for all the excitement from the sunshine state!
CCI* Quick Recap – The course ran exceptionally well. The top three remains unchanged from dressage, with Liz Halliday-Sharp holding first and second aboard Deniro Z and Elarona respectively, with Allison Springer and Business Ben in third. Liz has a rail in hand tomorrow with her first mount, but not her second. Leslie Law and Fernhill Divergent used a double clear run to move up to fourth, and Jonathan Holling and Sportsfield Two Doors Down round out the top five in a field that was 71 horses deep. There were two rider falls, three retirements on course, and one elimination. The problems were spread relatively evenly around course.
