You can cry over what you’re missing, or you can dive into a wine-fuelled nostalgic rabbit hole and get the warm-and-fuzzies over wonderful weeks that have been (and will be again!) – and that, folks, is exactly the approach we’re choosing to take this week. So there’s no Kentucky this year, and that’s a bummer, sure – but what an incredible opportunity for us all to unashamedly spend long hours luxuriating in archive footage, remembering those performances of years gone by that set us to dreaming.
One of those performances was that of William Fox-Pitt and the New Zealand Thoroughbred Parklane Hawk, who took the title – and the second leg of their Grand Slam attempt – back in 2012 as the world geared up for an Olympic summer. It was magic then, and it’s magic now – and you better believe that we’re sitting in our respective fortresses, notepads in hand, dissecting the details of William’s ride to figure out just what it is that makes him look so effortless in the irons. Fairy dust? Supernatural abilities? A slightly intimidating mother who dragged him out hunting from an early age? Probably a bit of all of the above – but we’re going to learn everything we can through osmosis. Do you have a favourite Kentucky performance from years gone by? Let us know in the comments, and you could see your pick spotlighted this week!
