In 1993 Stephen Bradley and Sassy Reason were the first Americans to win the prestigous Burghley CCI4* and five U.S. riders finished in the top 10 - a super accomplishment for the country. Bradley remains the only U.S. rider to win the Event, although Bruce Davidson and Irish Cap won the World Championships which was hosted at the venue in 1974. Scoring a 49.4 in dressage and adding only .8 time penalties on the cross-country, Bradley and Sassy Reason finished the weekend on a 50.2.
