On a chilly, rain-soaked day of cross-country riding at the Kentucky Horse Park, the international horses proved they came to play, snagging the top five spots on the leaderboard.
Lexington, Ky., April 24, 2015— Tim Price of New Zealand and Michael Jung of Germany are the co-leaders after the dressage phase of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Land Rover. Price rode Wesko to a score of 36.3 just after 10:00 a.m., and then Jung—who won Thursday’s session on Fischerrocana FST—rode La Biosthetique Sam FBW to the same score just before 4:00 p.m.
Lexington, Ky., April 23, 2015—The last time Michael Jung rode at the Kentucky Horse Park, he won the individual gold medal at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. This year he’s back, with two horses, to ride for the first time at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, and he took a commanding lead on the first day of dressage, scoring 39.3 on Fischerrocana FST.
