All 25 combinations that presented at this morning’s soggy Jersey Fresh final horse inspection were accepted.
The CCI3*-L Ground Jury of Bobby Stevenson (USA), Valerie Vizcarrando-Pride (USA) and Janice Conlon (USA) passed the entire field of 14, who will continue onto show jumping at 9:30 a.m.
Doug Payne withdrew third-placed Quantum Leap before the trot up, citing a heal grab that has caused some soreness.
Nilson Moreira da Silva was ultimately given a technical elimination on yesterday’s cross country with Magnum’s Martini. He was originally given 15 penalties at fence 8c, a skinny in the Jersey Fresh water, but according to the ground jury it should have been elimination.
Sue Baxter (GBR), the President of the CCI4*-L Ground Jury, shared this statement: “Horse No. 79 was eliminated at fence 8c during the cross country. His score was incorrectly posted on the results sheets. This was a clerical error. Once the Ground Jury was aware of this, it was corrected.”
The eleven remaining CCI4*-L horses all continue to the final phase. They will show jump over Chris Barnard’s track starting at 11 a.m.
