World Events, April ,  Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event
 

Event Information:

 

The Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event is an eventing competition held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. The Rolex Kentucky is a CCI**** eventing competition, and the only four-star show in the Western Hemisphere. Four stars is the highest level of competition, the same level of competition as Eventing at the Olympics. The event is sponsored by Rolex watches and is known by many equestrians simply as Rolex. Prize money of $250,000 is distributed among the top placings with $80,000 as well as a Rolex watch being awarded to the first place horse and rider.

Competition takes place over four days (Thursday through Sunday), although the event's name says it continues to indicate a three day competition. Dressage competition is on Thursday and Friday (due to the large number of entries), cross-country is on Saturday, and show-jumping is on Sunday. Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm and an educational theme park opened in 1978 in Lexington, Kentucky. It is located off Kentucky State Highway 1973 (Iron Works Pike) and Interstate 75 in northern Fayette County in the United States. The equestrian facility is a 1,224-acre (4.95 km2) park dedicated to "man's relationship with the horse." Open to the public, the Park has a twice daily Parade of Breeds, showcasing both common and rare horses from across the globe. The horses are ridden in authentic costume. Each year the park is host to a number of special events and horse shows.

Besides thoroughbred horses, standardbred greats such as Western Dreamer, Cam Fella and Rambling Willie have made the Kentucky Horse Park their home, as well as 5-gaited Saddlebred gelding CH Gypsy Supreme and late champions CH Imperator and CH Sky Watch. A number of horse sculptures stand in the Kentucky Horse Park, including a Man o' War statue on a pedestal near the entrance. There is also a life-size statue of the 1973 U.S. Triple Crown winner Secretariat with jockey Ron Turcotte aboard being led by groom Eddie Sweat. From harness racing, there is a statue of Bret Hanover.
