Exciting news, EN! British Olympic eventing legend William Fox-Pitt will make his return to the Grand-Prix Eventing Showcase at Bruce’s Field, presented by Taylor Harris Insurance Services, happening in Aiken, SC March 3-4. William will take the reins of 5* rider and Strides for Equality Equestrians co-founder Heather Gillette’s off-track Thoroughbred, Vincent Chase, for the competition. Lanky Will is becoming something of a regular at Bruce’s Field, which should tell you everything it needs to about how great the show is: he borrowed Sara Kozumplik’s Rock Phantom last year, finishing sixteenth, and was third in 2019 on Hannah Salazar’s Sandro’s Star.
Heather has produced “Vinnie” since his off-track days, moving him up to the Advanced and 4* level in 2022. This will be his first trip to a showcase-format event, which also boasts a growing entry roster that includes former winners Liz Halliday-Sharp and Boyd Martin.
