Lexington, Ky.—April 26—The five-star riders were dressed to their best, and their horses were braided and groomed to present before the ground jury on a beautiful Wednesday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington ahead of the start of competition at the 2023 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.

The 38 horses that jogged at High Hope Inspection Lane all passed. However, announcer Brian O’Connor informed the crowd that Andrew McConnon and Ferrie’s Cello (Chello III VDL x Karelza), set to make their five-star debut, withdrew from the competition.

The weather in Lexington for Wednesday’s jog was clear with temperatures in the 60s. However, rain is in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. The dressage tests for the CCI5*-L are scheduled to begin in Rolex Stadium at 1:30 p.m. EST on Thursday with the first 20 horses in the field, followed by the final 18 starting at 1 p.m. EST on Friday.
