Germany's Michael Jung stormed into the lead on the opening day of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. Partnered with his champion horse, FischerRocana FST, Jung showed he is here to win, producing a stunning dressage test to land a score of 27.1. USA's Boyd Martin is hot on the German's heals securing 31.2 to finish the day in second position aboard his black gelding, Tsetserleg. Tamara Smith (USA) currently lies third on the leaderboard with Kevin Baumgardner’s Dutch Warmblood, Wembley, on a score of 32.1. 

Michael Jung commented on his early lead; "I am very happy with FischerRocana today, she felt really nice and did a good test. I am looking forward to the cross-country on Saturday, we need to prepare well but the course looks nice and the ground is perfect."

I really enjoy riding here, it is such a beautiful place, not just the riding but all the other elements you can enjoy. FischerRocana loves it here, she feels well, she feels at home and is amazing to ride. // Michael Jung

 

Michael Jung currently sits in top position but with some of the world's best eventers still to complete their dressage tests tomorrow the competition remains wide open. US Event rider and runner-up in 2016, Lauren Kieffer, has two strong rides, Landmarks Monte Carlo and Vermiculus. Olympic Bronze Medallist, Phillip Dutton competes his second horse, I'm Sew Ready and Great Britain's Oliver Townend will be eyeing up the top prize to continue his Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing journey, following his victory at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials last September.
