It’s just about go time for day two here at the $50,000 MARS Eventing Showcase! We’re getting ready to kick off show jumping, which will commence at 10:30 am ET. Keep refreshing this page for live updates from the action; if you’d rather watch yourself, you can find the show jumping live stream right here.
The time allowed for today’s show jumping will be 76 seconds for Andy Christiansen’s course today. Let’s get this started!
Here is your top 10 following show jumping:
11:52 am ET: Boyd Martin and Long Island T:
11:48 am ET: Marilyn needed one of her rails after an enthusiastic RF Scandalous made her way around, but they’ll still hold on to a sizable lead heading into cross country, which will begin at 1:30 pm ET.
11:45 am ET: Although she likely won’t need it, Boyd Martin has also given overnight leader Marilyn Little more breathing room with two down after an otherwise lovely, flowing round from Long Island T. They’ll drop down all the way to 11th after the costly rails. Marilyn will now take a 2-rail in hand lead into her round.
11:42 am ET: Foxwood High and Selena O’Hanlon had the second of the two-stride down as well as the first of the final line so they’ll be bumped down quite a bit sadly.
11:41 am ET: Phillip and Z:
11:40 am ET: Another clear round, this one from Buck Davidson and Carlevo to remain on a 28.6 going forward.
11:38 am ET: A clear round from pro pair Phillip Dutton and Z to keep the pressure on our top 4!
11:36 am ET: One down, just the top rail of a vertical, for Ryan Wood and Powell. This will drop them down into 7th at the moment on a score of 33.5.
11:34 am ET: It’s a beautiful day here at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center! Is this even real life?
11:33 am ET: Another clear round for Liz Halliday-Sharp, this time with Deniro Z! They will keep their dressage score of 29.0 intact.
11:29 am ET: Lauren Kieffer and her veteran partner Veronica have fence 9 and the final fence down in an otherwise lovely round and return to this level for the 18-year-old mare.
11:28 am ET: Erin Sylvester and Paddy and Caddy have a smooth and efficient round with just one rail down at the green oxer at fence 9
11:27 am ET: Sharon White and Cooley On Show:
11:24 am ET: A beautiful clear round and a big huge smile from Sharon White and Cooley On Show. One of the loveliest rounds of the day. They’ll take their dressage score of 31.3 into the final phase.
11:24 am ET: Jacob Fletcher and Van Gough:
11:22 am ET: Fernhill Singapore takes a detour in the middle of the final line but Phil being Big Phil gets him back in line to clear the last.
11:20 am ET: Liz Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver:
11:19 am ET: 4 rails down for Doug and Quantum Leap. A tough challenge Mr. Christiansen has put forward today!
11:17 am ET: Correction: Doug Payne did not withdraw Quantum Leap and now brings him forward for his turn.
11:17 am ET: Jacob Fletcher throws his head back after knocking just the last fence down for a 46.5 following two phases.
11:16 am ET: Daniela Moguel and Cecelia:
11:15 am ET: Jacob Fletcher and Van Gough will be our next to see as we step into the top 15.
11:14 am ET: Daniela Moguel and Cecelia jump a clear round as well! Have a day, ladies!
11:10 am ET: We have had several withdrawals before this phase: Boyd Martin/Tsetserleg, Ryan Wood/Rembrandt, Will Coleman/Off the Record, Katherine Coleman/Monte Classico, and Lynn Symansky/RF Cool Play.
11:09 am ET: Just inside the time with four rails down for Canada’s Kyle Carter and Reddy or Not.
11:08 am ET: Celien jumps a lovely clear for Hallie Coon to stay on their dressage score of 32.9.
11:07 am ET: FYI, this live update thread was supposed to be much more interesting than me typing a bunch of words. Hopefully I can get my technical trouble sorted for cross country. Just consider this the test run.
11:06 am ET: Buck Davidson uses all his expertise to pilot Erroll Gobey around for just one rail down. Made that pesky last line look good!
11:02 am ET: Man, this final line is really causing some issues today. Another victim, Cornelia with Sir Patico MH. Buck Davidson and Erroll Gobey will be up next.
11:00 am ET: A 50.9 two phase score for Holly Jacks-Smither after a four rail round. Next into the top 25 are Cornelia Dorr and Sir Patico MH.
10:59 am ET: One rail down for Joe Meyer with Bucaneer. Canada’s Holly Jacks-Smither and More Inspiration are next to go.
10:58 am ET: Here is your Order of Go:
10:56 am ET: Doug Payne and Vandiver were a bit delayed coming to the ring after “Quinn” threw a shoe and unfortunately had four down to add to their score. It looked like Quinn may have thrown a shoe again coming out of one of the lines.
10:54 am ET: Clayton Fredericks and FE Money Made have a heartbreaker rail down at the last to go forward on a score of 39.1.
10:52 am ET: Ibella jumps absolutely out of her skin for Jennie to take the early lead with the third clear of the day!
10:51 am ET: Take a look at the course the riders are tackling today:
10:47 am ET: Ariel Grald and Leamore Master Plan have one rolling rail in the final line. Just two clear rounds so far, one from Joe Meyer and the other from Lisa Fergusson. Next up will be Jennie Brannigan with Ibella.
10:42 am ET: Unfortunately seven rails come down for Anna and Spartacus Q. Next we’ll see Sara Kozumplik Murphy and Rubens D’ysieux.
10:40 am ET: One costly rail down, the second of the double, for Charlotte and Clifford M to drop her down a couple of spots. Anna Loschiavo will ride next with Spartacus Q.
10:38 am ET: Lisa Marie and “Tali” will stay on their dressage score with another clear round. Next up are Charlotte Collier and Clifford M on a 37.6.
10:36 am ET: A clear round for Joe and Clip Clop! Next up will be Lisa Marie Fergusson with Honor Me for Canada. They bring forward a score of 40.5 from the dressage.
10:34 am ET: 12 jumping faults but clear on the time for Erin Sylvester and Campground. We’re running in reverse order of go from the dressage phase, and we’ll see Joe Meyer with Clip Clop next.
10:32 am ET: Our first to see today will be Erin Sylvester and Campground. This pair has a lot of experience here in Florida, winning the CCI4*-L at Ocala last year.
