The billboard leads the way to the MGM Grand Hotel host of the Welcome Party and draw for today's competition. Photo: Mary Phelps While Charlotte Dujardin does admit Valegro seems a bit jet lagged, and "felt a little flat today" in the warm up, day five of the long trip is predictably the toughest day for the horses who have travelled so far, and are in an environment even Valegro in all of his travels has never seen.
