The first horse inspection at the first Maryland 5 Star took place this afternoon in the infield of the steeplechase track at Fair Hill in Elkton, Md. There were 46 horses presented to the ground jury of Angela Tucker (GBR), Martin Plewa (GER), and Mark Weissbecker after Lexi Scovil did not bring forward Chico’s Man VDF Z and Boyd Martin did not present Long Island T.

Two horses were sent to the hold box – Voltaire De Tre, Tre’ Book’s 11-year-old Selle Francais gelding (Gentleman IV x Jasmina Du Fresne), ridden by Leslie Law was the first sent to the hold and he was accepted upon reinspection. Cooley On Show, Sharon White’s 14-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (Ricardo Z x Jogantina), was sent to the hold box and sadly was not accepted on the second inspection.

There was a long pause before announcing the acceptance of Quantum Leap, Doug and Jessica Payne’s 10-year-old Zweibrucker gelding (Quite Capitol x Report to Sloopy), but the rest of the field passed without incidence or antics from the horses.

Dressage gets underway for the five-star at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow and Buck Davidson will be the first down centerline with Carlevo. Forty-five horses will now start the inaugural competition.
