Grand Slam Shenanigans?

With the eventing world still holding its breath for the latest news on the Jock Paget situation, Burghley 2013’s runner-up, Andrew Nicholson (who will of course win the Burghley title if Clifton Promise is eliminated, as looks very likely) is not letting the grass grow under his feet.

Badminton has changed its rules, and Andrew would be allowed to run his three entered horses there (Quimbo, Avebury, and Nereo). There are also rumours that he has chartered a private plane to take every other one of his 4* horses to Rolex Kentucky, since Rolex puts no limit on the number of horses a rider can run. This would of course give him an unprecedented chance to win the Rolex Grand Slam.
