Hialeah's so-called meet is underway. Actually a doubleheader meet with first post at noon and second shift at 3 PM, and 8 "races" apiece. I considered attending just to walk the premises for a while, but I doubt I'll do it after reading the details.

Teenage and even early 20s horses competing in match races over 110 yards. Same horses entered day after day. Gates without doors. Whistle start. Exclusively female jockeys and none wearing standard riding gear. A dozen spectators or fewer.

USEF Board of Directors Approves Recommendation of New Eventing CCI4* to Fair Hill International and Approves HITS Ocala to Host 2018/2019 FEI Nations Cup™ Qualifier
On Monday, July 23, 2017, the US Equestrian Federation (USEF) Board of Directors approved the recommendation to allocate the designation of an additional United States eventing CCI4* competition in 2019 to Fair Hill International. In January 2017, the Board of Directors narrowed the list of five applicants to two and following that decision spent several months researching, meeting with Organizing Committees and conducting additional site visits.

Phillip Dutton Now No. 2 in FEI World Rankings, Hannah Sue Burnett Jumps Into Top 10
Phillip Dutton moved up one spot in the latest FEI World Eventing Athlete Rankings and now sits No. 2 on 531 points behind Michael Jung, who continues to dominate the top spot on the leaderboard with 644 points.
Since finishing Mr. Medicott, Fernhill Fugitive and I’m Sew Ready inside the top 10 at Kentucky CCI4* in April, Phillip has continued to enjoy a very strong season. In addition to placing in the top 10 with Z and Fernhill Revelation at Tattersalls CCI3* in Ireland, Phillip also won the Jersey Fresh CCI3* with Mr. Candyman and most recently finished third in the FEI Nations Cup at Great Meadow with I’m Sew Ready.
