Yeah, it sucks! I hope Cruismaster is ok...... it was at the hollow, which would be at about the 4 minute mark if the course was flipped again... I'm kinda hoping Karren wins now!

From what I've heard, Cruise is fine, just a little shaken. You can watch all of XC for free here:
April 24, 9 a.m. ET: Rolex Kentucky Equestrian Championship - Cross country - Universal Sports
Oli's fall is at about 4:43. Horrible. I can't believe his neck isn't broken.
I'd be thrilled to see Will FP get the trophy now that Oli's probably out of contention!

It's free to watch the full replay now. To watch it live was $15 - I had no idea they'd be doing a free replay though! :)

I've been watching it live since Thursday. Townend's fall was terrible, but Crowell's fall was bad as well at the coffin.

I'm pulling for Kim Severson, as always. But I wouldn't mind Karen, Phillip, or Becky winning either.

What's interesting to me is that there were three rotational falls and one near-miss at the same jump. Incidentally, that jump is a frangible pin fence. Interesting.
I just saw Oli's bobble on Master Rose - man, that boy can ride!

He really is an incredible rider, I agree! Though I still want an american to win the grand slam before another brit does. :P Bad as that sounds.

I feel like there's been such a great group of competitors at Rolex this year! It's different because a lot of Europeans couldn't get over, but even without them the talent that managed to come and compete is amazing. Boyd Martin, Oli Townend, Dutton, O'Connor, Severson, Holder, Springer, Davidson, Fox-Pitt....rawr. I love them all!

I'm in the process of watching it, but since it's like 6 hours long it'll take me awhile, haha.
