LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 30, 2015) — A record 91 horses have been entered to compete in the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, including defending champion William Fox-Pitt, and Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II.
This year’s event, which will be from April 23-26 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, includes 75 riders from nine countries, and includes German Michael Jung, who won individual gold medals at both the 2012 Olympic Games in London and the 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park.
This year’s prize money has been increased to $300,000—with $100,000 going to the winner. This year’s event is also an official selection trial for the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and will help determine which U.S. event riders will be chosen to compete at the Pan American Games.
