Tuesday News & Notes from Kentucky Performance Products

I’m still just reveling in the spoils of such great stories from this year’s CCI5* events thus far. You’ve got an incredible partnership that never seems to age in Adelaide winners Shane Rose and Virgil, a first U.S. winner of Kentucky since 2008 in Tamie Smith and Mai Baum, and now (among many, many other stats), Ros Canter becomes one of five riders to win individual gold at World Championships as well as Badminton. ‘

We now turn to a key CCI4*-L in the U.S. this week at Tryon International, with a few weeks to go before the next 5* of the season (Luhm├╝hlen – Germany – June 15-18).
