If you can’t get tickets to Rolex but don’t want to miss a beat, then this year you’re in luck. In an unprecedented move, the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will be offered in a full, live webcast.
Kerry Millikin, the 1996 Olympic Individual Bronze medalist and winner of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in 1987, will serve as the analyst for the webcasts.
For those less inclined to pay the fee for real-time viewing, the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will be broadcast on NBC television as a one-hour special May 6, from 5-6 p.m. EST.
The 2007 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will run a CCI**** without Steeplechase (short format) and the 10th championship for the U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation Pinnacle Trophy, signifying the zenith in eventing competition in the United States.
Last year’s Rolex Kentucky, a competition testing some of the world’s most athletic horses in dressage, cross-country and show jumping, attracted a record 90,748 people over the four days of the competition.
Due in part to the success and proven organization of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, the Kentucky Horse Park was chosen as the site for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010. This will mark the first time the Games, which feature World Championships in eight equestrian disciplines, are being held outside of Europe.
