After an exciting finish to yet another Rolex, we can now all officially recognize that William Fox Pitt only comes to the United States to school us on how it’s done. The man is a machine, and probably has the best stable of four-star winners of anybody in the entire world right now. The magic isn’t just in his ability to win, but his ability to show up at each event well prepared for the level on many different types of horses. One day, an American will win Rolex, but at least we gave WFP a run for his money! Check out what’s happening behind the scenes after the conclusion of the event.

When Buck tells you how to jump the course, you listen. He jumped double clear on both Park Trader and Ballynoe Castle RM to finish 12th and 3rd respectively!

William took a moment to clarify his “chubby” comments from yesterday. Don’t worry, he had the fitness, he just thinks that Moonie is a chubs!

After an uncharacteristic six rails down, Andrew Nicholson and Avebury slipped way down the rankings. Andrew then proceeded to fume his way back home, fueling the plane on pure fury and determination to never repeat that again.
