Entries List Announced For Kentucky 3DE CCI5*

The Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event CCI5* presented by Mars Equestrian has announced the entry list for the 2019  renewal of the USA's premier horse trials.

Defending champion Oliver Townend of Great Britain heads the list and the World No.1 will ride his winning horse from last year, Cooley Masterclass. Piggy French and Quarrycast Echo return to the USA as well after contributing last autumn to a British team win at the World Championships. 

​The home challenge is strong with Buck Davidson Jr holding four entries, and Lauren Kieffer, Boyd Martin and Caroline Martin all with three apiece. In-form Elizabeth Halliday Sharp, winner recently at Red Hills, rides Deniro Z in the horse's first attempt at the level.

​Possibly the most interesting of the entries are two former star riders getting back to the top level after some time away from it. Australia's Clayton Fredericks is a former winner but now lives in the USA where he has been involved in training the Canadian team. Also now resident in the USA is the 2004 Olympic champion Leslie Law,  who once again will carry the British flag when he rides Voltaire de Tre.
