The Rolex Kentucky CCI**** on the last weekend of April at the Kentucky Horse Park is where Thoroughbreds prove each year that they are the best sport horses on the planet. Erin Pittman has researched for RRP the pedigrees, race records, and eventing records of the Thoroughbreds entered this year. Horses may be added or withdrawn as we approach the event!

It is thrilling to have 2012 Rolex winner Parklane Hawk back from Great Britain with the world's leading rider William Fox-Pitt. This horse raced nineteen times both on the flat and over jumps.

American ex-racehorses Anthony Patch and Donner both have a good chance of beating the favored British horse. Donner, who raced as Smart Gorky, and his steely-nerved rider Lynn Symansky represented the United States last summer at the World Equestrian Games and seem primed to put in a lifetime best performance. Anthony Patch, who raced as Alex's Castledream, is sixteen years old this year but his longtime best friend and rider Lainey Ashker says he just gets better and better. Both Lainey and Lynn have appeared with their celebrity Thoroughbreds at RRP events and we will be cheering them on in a big way.

These horses not only raced, but take a look below at how many advanced level events and FEI competitions they have done. We are noticing a trend that off-track Thoroughbreds last longer than horses who never got the early fitness unique to racehorses. Remember old man Mensa G at Rolex last year? Nine of the 23 ex-racehorses listed below are age fifteen or older, including favorite Parklane Hawk. The grandaddy of the bunch is Relentless Pursuit at age nineteen, with the famous Madison Park riight behind at eighteen.

Also, don't miss the exciting Thoroughbred Makeover Previews with surprise celebrity commentators in the demo ring Friday at 3:30 pm and Saturday at 10:30am. Nuno Santos, Amy Lent, Jordan Pruiksma, Hillary Irwin, and Emily Daignault will be demonstrating the progress of their Thoroughbreds in training for October's Thoroughbred Makeover.
