The draw order has been posted for the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, and Colleen Rutledge and Shiraz will have the honors of kicking off the competition. With so many talented horses and riders entered, the two days of dressage will be sh0w-stopping right off the bat, with Michael Jung and fischerRocana FST drawing the No. 10 slot, which will put them in the very first group on Day 1.

And the final group of Day 2 is sure to be one of the most exciting lineup of dressage tests we’ve seen in recent years at this event, with Cambalda, RF Demeter, Veronica, Bay My Hero, Fernhill By Night, La Biosthetique Sam FBW, Ballynoe Castle RM, Mighty Nice and Master Frisky all going virtually back to back.

Click here to check out the full draw order, and let us know who you’ll be cheering for in the comments below. Additionally, you’ll notice a few names missing from the entry list after the first round of withdrawals, which brings the entry list down to 88.

Zach Brandt has withdrawn Cavallino Cocktail, Jon Holling has withdrawn Zatopek B, and Buck Davidson has withdrawn Copper Beech after confirming the horse will go to Tattersalls CCI3* instead of Rolex. Keep it locked on EN for all your Rolex news as we count down the final days.
