Yesterday half of the CCI5*-L and CCI3*-L pairs had their turn in front of the judges at the 2021 Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill, and today the remaining groups will canter down centerline in the main arena. The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships also kicked off yesterday with the 4-year-old champion being crowned and the 5-year-olds doing their dressage and conformation phases.

Today the action gets started at 8:00 a.m. with the CCI3*-L and the CCI5*-L following at 1:03 p.m. New Zealand's Tim Price will be the first of the CCI5*-L riders aboard Xavier Faer, Trisha Rickards, Tim Price, and Nigella Hall's 15-year-old British Sport Horse gelding (Catherston Liberator x Faerie Dazzler). Price and Xavier Faer finished second at Kentucky earlier this year so are looking for a strong start to the weekend.

On the other side of the property, the 5-year-old jumping begins bright and early with Catherine Pournelle riding Linda Hudson’s Irish Sport Horse gelding Cooley On A Quest (Ramiro B x Beyond Rubies) at 8:03 a.m.
