William Fox-Pitt Claims the Rolex Kentucky Title
After a flawless performance by William Fox-Pitt and Bay My Hero, Fox-Pitt was able to claim the 2014 Rolex Kentucky title. At the complete of the three day event, Fox Pitt ended with a score of 44.0. He took the win on his 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding making a grand finish by jumping double clear to claim his third Kentucky win.
Bay My Hero has been in Fox Pitt’s yard since the horse was five years old. The two are like family and their long relationship paid off Sunday at the Kentucky Horse Park.
“Each win is very special for its own merits. I think that with every one you still can’t believe that it happened,” according to Fox-Pitt. “The odds are always so stacked against you in our sport. I didn’t come here expecting to win; I came with two lovely horses hoping they would go well. To come out on top is just fantastic; it’s very special.”
Lauren Kieffer from Middleburg, Va and Veronica was able to claim second place finishing with a score of 46.7. Kieffer was seen riding 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare. The two looked like a veteran pair during the jumping phase on Sunday.
Congratulations to both riders for their phenomenal performance.
