William Fox Pitt is no stranger to competing here in Kentucky, most recently coming in a close second in 2013 with Seacookie TSF and winning in both 2010 and 2012 with Cool Mountain and Parklane Hawk, respectively. William is back to improve on his second place with Seacookie this year, and the horse is well prepared and coming off of a win at the Pau CCI4* last year. He also has a second mount, Bay My Hero, who is contesting his second CCI4* here in Kentucky. His first CCI4* was at Pau last year, where he earned a fourth place not too far off from his stablemate.
I must give a huge shout-out to Jeep, who graciously invited EN to interview and spend time with one of the most iconic riders in the equine world. William and his wife, Alice, are delightful company and they both seem pleased to be back in Kentucky again this year.
