All thirty-one combinations who completed yesterday’s cross country were presented at the final horse inspection this morning, and all were accepted by the ground jury of Christina Klingspor (SWE), Martin Plewa (GER) and Mark Weissbecker (USA) at the final horse inspection of the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.
We are pleased to report that it was a perfectly boring trot up — all the horses were on their best behavior and look keen to take on Richard Jeffery’s show jumping course this afternoon.
With no horses withdrawn, we continue with yesterday’s leaderboard intact. Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class have an eye on a second Kentucky win, but with only 2.6 points separating him from Boyd Martin and Tsetserleg, he won’t have a pole in hand.
The show jumping begins at 1 p.m. running in reverse order of standing. Follow along with moment-by-moment updates in our Open Tread, which you can find on EN this afternoon, or keep an eye of EN’s twitter for live updates and analysis from numbers wizard Maggie Deatrick. You can also watch all the action live on USEF Network.
