For the first time since 2019, the grounds at the Kentucky Horse Park will be packed for cross-country day during the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian. Tailgaters are setting up their tents, spectators are hiking to their favorite jump, and vendor row is soon to be buzzing as the competition gets underway.

First out of the start box this morning at 9:00 a.m. in the CCI4*-S is Liz Halliday-Sharp and The Monster Partnership’s 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Cooley Quicksilver (Womanizer x Kylmore Crystal) who currently sit in third on a 25.7. The overnight leaders Doug Payne and the 11-year-old KWPN mare, Starr Witness (Chello III VDL x Carmen) owned by Doug Payne, Catherine Winter, and Laurie McRee, are scheduled for 10:30 a.m.
