Rolex GP Rocks the Park

Melanie Taylor Blog


The course tonight at the Rolex Central Park Horse Show was set by Olympic course designer Guillerme Jorge. Ten horses were clear for the jump off.  Jimmy Torano on his 8 yr old Day Dream bested the large field of contenders to win the title.

Central Park is such a gem for the people of NYC with 843 acres of pastoral peace in the midst of skyscrapers. The Rolex Grand Prix certainly added a bit of excitement here tonight!  You can watch all the action on NBCSports this Sunday 9:00-10:30pm ET.
