Two British riders are among the many Mars Maryland 5 Star entries for this yr’s occasion (13-16 October).
Harry Meade returns to the US autumn five-star with Mandy Grey’s and his personal Superstition, on whom he completed seventh at Maryland final yr.
Disappointingly, there are solely 24 Maryland 5 Star entries at current, though it’s doubtless the organisers will settle for late entries, so this might creep up.
Three members of the US’s silver medal-winning workforce finally week’s eventing World Championships in Pratoni have a trip within the five-star class, with Will Coleman bringing ahead Don Dante, Tamie Smith using Danito and Lauren Nicholson piloting Landmark’s Monte Carlo. As well as, World Championships reserve mixture Phillip Dutton and Z might be in motion.
Boyd Martin gained Maryland final yr, however he’s the one US rider from Pratoni not beginning within the five-star class, though he’ll compete within the accompanying CCI3*-L and five-year-old class.
Liz Halliday-Sharp will begin among the many favourites with a powerful hand in her two entries – Deniro Z, who was chosen for final yr’s Olympics although he needed to be withdrawn owing to damage, and Cooley Quicksilver, whose three wins at CCI4*-S embrace victory within the sizzling supporting class on the Kentucky Three-Day Occasion in April.
Buck Davidson is the one different rider with two horses within the class and he’s slated to begin on Carlevo and Sorocaima.
Doug Payne and Quantum Leap have been the very best US mixture within the five-star at Kentucky within the spring and they are going to be at Maryland, too.
Younger US expertise Woods Baughman will attempt to make amends for a disappointing cross-country efficiency at Burghley Horse Trials when he brings ahead C’est La Vie 135.
Followers of Hannah Sue Burnett’s veteran trip Harbour Pilot can even have an opportunity to see him in motion because the 19-year-old is on the begin checklist.
