Oliver Townend has now won Burghley 2017 and Kentucky 2018 with first-time four-star horses to set himself up for a shot at the Rolex Grand Slam this week at Badminton.
He gave Angela Hislop’s Cooley Master Class a masterful ride around Derek di Grazia’s cross country course on Saturday, and you can rewatch the full ride thanks to USEF Network.
Oliver produced “Coolio,” a 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse (Ramiro B X The Swallow, by Master Imp) from a 4-year-old. We love watching longtime partnerships come to fruition!
Three cheers for Oliver and Coolio. Go Eventing.
