Joe Whitaker scores a hat-trick in Vilamoura


The on-form Joe Whitaker scored a hat-trick up on the Vilamoura Atlantic tour, Portugal, winning all three classes on offer in a British whitewash.

They were second and third yesterday, but Joe and Nicole Pavitt claimed the top two places in Wednesday’s seven-year-old on the Vilamoura Atlantic tour, Portugal. Joe led the way with two sec in hand on Diola, a home-bred daughter of Locarno 62, with Nicole in second on the home-bred Unbelievable Darco/Equador stallion Gemmarco 16. Emma Stoker and Shelby 12 took sixth.

Joe doubled up in the in the six-year-old with the Handel sired Redhill Fanta – third the previous day – with Nicole Pavitt and Paris 16, a daughter of Don VHP Z and out of a Quo Vadis mare, in second and Georgie Crumley on the Catoki/Contender mare Cotoki third. Emma Stoker and Pembroke 3 took fifth with Nicole in seventh on the previous day’s winner, the Warrior daughter Xena 16.

And to round off a super day, Joe claimed the five-year-old on the aptly-named Fairy Tale, a British-bred, Checkpoint De Lison mare. Brits filled seven of the top ten, with Emma Stoker on Shariva in second and fifth with Vienna and Nicole Pavitt and Newtonhill Monaco in third. Scareltte Norman and Flavie Van de Helle took sixth just ahead of Laura Johnson in seventh on SFS Annette and tenth with Off The Record.
