Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Coverage Available Live on the Web

Equestrian sports fans around the world will be able to watch the 2007 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Farnam, as it happens.

This year's Rolex Kentucky CCI****, returns to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., April 26-29. Live Web casts of all three phases (Thursday and Friday dressage, Saturday cross-country and Sunday show jumping) will be available online at www.NBCSports.com for $7.99.

The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will be broadcast on NBC television as a one-hour special on Sunday, May 6, from 5-6:00 p.m. EDT.

Carr-Hughes Productions, producer of the NBC and international telecasts of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, will generate the programming for the Web casts. Kerry Millikin, the 1996 Olympic Individual Bronze medalist and winner of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in 1987, will serve as the analyst for the Web casts.

"Last year, thanks to the initiative of our webmaster, Evan Haller, we presented our first-ever live Web cast on the event Web site, featuring our most popular cross-country location, the Head of the Lake," said Jane Atkinson, event director and executive vice president of Equestrian Events, Inc. "For those who can't make it to Kentucky, this is the perfect opportunity to see the action as it is happening."

Last year's Rolex Kentucky attracted a record 90,748 people over the four days of the competition.

The only four-star event in the Western Hemisphere, the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is the premier competition for the top horses and riders in eventing. Past winners include a bevy of Olympic medalists: Bruce Davidson, David and Karen O'Connor and Kim Severson of the United States, New Zealand's Blyth Tait, Pippa Funnell of Great Britain, and Andrew Hoy of Australia.
