There were six horses held and one spun at the final horse inspection at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event, leaving sixty-one pairs to continue to the show jumping phase.
All eight CCI3* horses presented this morning were accepted, including overnight leader Mr. Candyman, who is ridden by Phillip Dutton. Kristen Buffamoyer withdrew ninth-placed Jim this morning before the jog.
While Cornelia’s first-placed Louis M was accepted, her second ride, Sir Patico MH who was in third place after cross country, was sent to the hold and unfortunately not accepted upon second presentation. One other horse, fourth-placed Jennie Brannigan’s mount Twilightslastgleam, was also sent to the hold, but accepted when presented again.
Three were held in the CIC3* group: Boris O’Hara, who is fifth with Will Coleman, Geoni, who is 17th with Tracey Bienemann, and Celien, who is 10th with Hallie Coon.
All 21 CIC2* combinations will continue this weekend. One pair were held — Waylon Robert’s mount, Mindful — but accepted on second presentation.
Show jumping gets underway at 10:00 am with the CIC2* group kicking things off.
