Thursday marks the start of the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event at The Kentucky Horse Park; North America’s only four star competition where the best horses and riders in the world face off at the highest level of the sport for the richest prize in three day eventing.  German rider Michael Jung is trying to win for a third consecutive year, but as Samantha Lederman reports a promising young American rider is hoping to pull off the upset.

Listeners might remember Lederman and her English accent from when she was a morning news anchor on WUKY from 1999 to 2001.
