If the Ocala Jockey Club International Three-Day Event was a race, the starting field would be loaded in the gate following the first horse inspection today here in Reddick, Florida.
In the CCI2*-L, one horse was sent to the holding box, Natasha Erschen’s mount Chai Tea Latte, but was accepted after re-presenting. Across the three- and four-star divisions, only one horse did not pass: Joe Meyer’s mount Gortglas Crazy Love, in the CCI3*-L. Emily Beshear’s mount Deal With It was sent to the hold in the CCI3*-L but passed upon re-presentation.
Black fences criss-crossing emerald fields, Spanish moss fluttering in a cool autumn breeze … it’s hard to capture the magnificence of this venue, a jewel in the crown of Thoroughbred country. Enjoy these sun-drenched snapshots of the first horse inspection by the brilliant Shannon Brinkman:
Dressage starts at 8 a.m. tomorrow for half the CCI2*-L and the full CCI4*-S division — father-daughter team Rick and Elisa Wallace will be their test riders, respectively, beginning at 7:40 a.m. The first of two days of CCI3*-L dressage kicks off at 12:20 p.m. Click here for dressage start times.
There will be a live stream on EQTV Network beginning Friday; you view the schedule at the website.
