Time was definitely the deciding factor on Derek di Grazia’s cross-country course at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI3*. In what is often referred to as a three-and-a-half star, there were only four pairs who crossed the finish line under the 10-minute time allowed. The class serves at the USEF National Championship and di Grazia laid out a true championship test for the three-star competitors, but they came prepared and 28 of the 36 pairs finished with only seven different fences causing any problems.
