Lexington, Ky. – July 25, 2020 – Empty stands couldn’t keep the energy down at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday afternoon as the first horse trotted into the Rolex Stadium for the inaugural Grand Prix of the Kentucky Summer Series, the $50,000 Rood & Riddle Grand Prix. Competitors and their support teams have done an excellent job all week long following the mandatory COVID-19 procedures, which included pushing the Grand Prix to earlier in the afternoon to better suit the show-and-go atmosphere that the team at Kentucky Horse Shows, LLC has adopted to keep all participants safe. Celso Ariani (BRA) and Janari Ter Dolen didn’t mind the lack of audience, however, putting on a show for all of the viewers watching on the live stream provided by ShowNet.
