That faint ticking sound in your head can only mean one thing:
Consult your doctor. Duck and cover. Get more sleep. The countdown to Rolex Kentucky is on!
Yes, the 2017 edition of Rolex Kentucky will commence in just over two weeks at the Kentucky Horse Park, and a total of 68 pairs have entered to give North America’s premier 3-day event a go.
Highlighting the draw is of course the presence of the two-time defending champions Michael Jung and fischerRocana, back and gunning for a ridiculous three-peat. Jung has another “fisch” up his sleeve in fischerTakinou, a 10-year-old Anglo Arabian gelding with the goods to challenge his stablemate atop the podium.
*Update* Jung has withdrawn fischerTakinou.
Lauren Kieffer returns with 2014 and 2016 runner-up Veronica, and will kick off the action on Thursday with Landmark’s Monte Carlo.
The venerable American trio of Boyd Martin, Buck Davidson and Phillip Dutton are yet again loaded up with 8 entries between them. And you’re guaranteed at least one awesome helmet cam videos thanks to Doug Payne (Vandiver).
Stay tuned for more ticking…
