    American rider Tamie Smith put in a marvellous test with Mai Baum today (23 April) to sit second in the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event 2021 dressage results. Tamie’s score put her within 0.1 of a penalty of tying with her compatriot, Marilyn Little, who continues to lead the five-star on RF Scandalous with her 21.7 penalty mark from the first day of competition.

    Tamie, who is first in the concurrent four-star with EnVogue, gave notice from the very beginning of her five-star test that she would be a contender with Mai Baum, when 81% flashed on the scoreboard as she started the medium trot on the diagonal with the dazzling black 15-year-old German Sport Horse.
