Swiss Takes Top Spot on First Day of Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

(LEXINGTON, KY) – April 25, 2019 – Switzerland’s Felix Vogg displayed supreme skill to take the lead on the opening day of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, his first time at the competition. Partnered with 11-year-old bay gelding, Colero, ninth-to-go Vogg produced a score of 28.0, the only rider of the day to go below 30.

Team USA are hot on the heels of the leader with Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and Deniro Z closely behind on 30.9 and crowd-favorite Buck Davidson Jr aboard Park Trader sitting in third place with 32.1.

Vogg, who has spent the past year based in the USA, commented on his result: “I am pretty happy, Colero did a good test today. We tried a new tactic of doing a much shorter warm-up, which seemed to work quite well. He doesn’t take the atmosphere too seriously and always puts in a good test and today did everything that I wanted.”

“For me the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event was the final thing to do in America before I leave, it is one of the biggest events in the world.  It’s something I have always wanted to do and it’s the first time we felt we had the horse to enter. It will be good preparation for his future too.” — Felix Vogg, Switzerland

The horse inspection saw a total of 41 progress into the opening day of the competition. Day two promises another strong line-up of horse and rider combinations, including the defending champion Oliver Townend (GBR). Vogg’s position at the top could be under threat as the competition remains wide open. US equestrian, Lauren Kieffer, will be seeking her first Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event victory with two strong rides, Vermiculus and Paramount Importance. FEI World Equestrian Games™ team gold medallist, Piggy French GBR, is a strong contender with Olympic individual bronze medallist Phillip Dutton bringing a wealth of experience to the field.

Lausanne (SUI), 29 August 2012 – Switzerland’s Felix Vogg has won the FEI World Cup Eventing 2012 title. The 22-year-old finished the World Cup season on 86 points, level with Belgium’s Karin Donckers, but under the series rules, in the event of equality, the rider with the highest placing is declared the winner and Vogg’s second place finish in Strzegom (POL) has secured him the title and the winner’s cheque of €9,000.

Felix Vogg competed at three World Cup fixtures during the 2012 series – Strzegom, Malmö (SWE), where he finished seventh and 11th, and Haras du Pin (FRA), where he finished 12th. With only the three best performances counting, Vogg’s 38 points from Strzegom and 48 (28/20) from his two Malmö placings bettered the 18 earned in Haras du Pin and the points from the French fixture were dropped from his tally, leaving him on 86.

Karin Donckers also ended the FEI World Cup Eventing season on 86 points, after finishing third, eighth and ninth in Haras du Pin, to leave her second overall in the series.
