Andrew Nicholson (NLZ) booked around the Rolex Kentucky CCI4* cross-country course to move into first and second, posting double-clear rounds with both Quimbo and Calico Joe, owned by Deborah Sellar and Twenty Twelve in Mind respectively. With at least two rails to spare between them, Andrew is in a very good position to claim the second leg of the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing and go forward to the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials head-to-head against William Fox-Pitt (GBR) in the bid for the $350,000 prize.
