Rolex Entry Update: More Big Names Added

Phillip Dutton and Mighty Nice have had an excellent preparation for Rolex this spring, most recently winning the Red Hills CIC3*. Photo by Samantha Clark.

The Rolex entry list has nearly doubled since our update from last week. There are now 37 horses and riders entered, with many more expected to come in before tomorrow’s entry deadline. While Colleen Rutledge and Shiraz appear on the list, Colleen has posted on her Facebook page that she is sixth on the wait list for Badminton. Assuming she makes it off the wait list, she and Luke will make the trip across the pond. Now that the EHV threat has officially been lifted from Beaufort Hunt Stables on the Badminton grounds, some riders will no longer be using Rolex as a back-up plan, which will shift the list.

As expected, Phillip Dutton has entered Mighty Nice and Fernhill Eagle, and Jennie Brannigan has entered Cambalda. James Alliston will be making the trip from the West Coast with Parker, and Henny’s fans will be delighted to see Peter Atkins and HJ Hampton officially on the entry list. Sally Cousins, who has made it very clear she has her eyes on the World Equestrian Games next year, has entered Tsunami. While Andrew Nicholson will compete at Badminton with his London Olympic mount Nereo, he’s bringing Quimbo and Calico Joe to Kentucky. Click here to view the entry list on the Rolex website.
