Comet’s Sunday Links from Dubarry

Our friends at Dubarry keep it classy at the AECs. Don't forgot to stop by their booth today if you haven't already!

Becky Holder and Courageous Comet concluded their decade-long partnership with a fairytale ending yesterday, winning the Advanced division at the American Eventing Championships at Chattahoochee Hills. Comet, 16, earns a well-deserved retirement after an incredible career that took the off-the-track Thoroughbred all over the world. Becky and Comet represented the U.S. at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. Their impressive resume includes third- and second-place finishes at Rolex in 2010 and 2008, respectively. Comet and Becky also won the Advanced division at the AECs in 2010. Go Comet.
