Buck Davidson and the OTTB Santa’s Keeper, owned by Buck and Carl Segal, took the early lead in the Bromont CCI* on Thursday morning. Santa’s Keeper is a 6 year old race horse who raced out of Keeneland Racetrack in Lexington, Kentucky. The pair moved into a the lead on 49.7 with an accurate ride from Buck–see video of their test below. I mentioned on Tuesday that Santa’s Keeper was bucking a few times in a schooling session with Buck, but he was all business today and very composed for a young horse. Canada’s Haley Armstrong-Laframboise and the 12 year old Canadian Sport Horse Roksolana delivered a 54.1 for second in the early going. There are over 50 rides still to go in the CCI* so the leaderboard is sure to see big changes throughout the day.
The CCI3* begins in the main arena shortly on a beautiful and cool day in Quebec. Go eventing.
