Of the 40 combinations presented to the Ground Jury this morning, 39 will move on to the show jumping phase following the final horse inspection at the 2017 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.

Two pairs were withdrawn from competition this morning prior to the jog: Jacqueline Mars’ Vermiculus, who was sitting in 23rd with Lauren Kieffer and Tracy Bowman’s Good Knight, who was in 42nd with Jolie Wentworth.

After yesterday’s grueling cross-country phase, three horses were sent to the hold box: Share Option, Sir Oberon and Vandiver. Upon representation, both Share Option and Sir Oberon were accepted. Sadly, Debi Crowley and Doug and Jessica’s seventh-placed Vandiver was not accepted and has been eliminated from the competition.

Show jumping begins at 1 p.m. in reverse order of standing.
