I’m seriously impressed after walking Derek Di Grazia’s Rolex cross-country course this afternoon. The course is definitely big enough to challenge the seasoned four-star riders, but it also includes a number of options that will help the record 13 first-time Rolex riders get around the course safely. The volunteers have done a wonderful job of decorating the course and are laying a protective covering over the flowers as I type this, as Lexington is under a frost advisory for tonight. Many thanks to all those who worked so hard to put together such a beautiful course for Saturday. Go Rolex.
