Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP), the company heading up the host bid for Wellington, Fl. has withdrawn its bid to host the 2018 World Equestrian Games. This leaves just two cities in the running to host the games: Bromont, Quebec and Lexington, Ky. Some may feel that Lexington has the draw in its favor considering the city hosted the 2010 World Equestrian Games, but Bromont plays host to an annual international three-day as well so the race will definitely be a close one.
