Helen Tredwell hits a purple patch in Lanaken


Helen Tredwell enjoyed a great day in Lanaken just after celebrating her father Alan’s 80th birthday.

Helen notched up a great win in the 1.45m on Ann and Colin Garrett’s Unbelievable Darco 10-year-old Sebastian VII by an impressive two sec. Emma Slater slotted Mark Haines’ Kigali 11-year-old Art D Usance into sixth.

And Helen took a close second in the 1.40m on Phil Tuckwell’s Balou Du Rouet/Concorde nine-year-old Balouetta just 0.19 sec in arrears. Geoff Luckett brought Sharon Baldwin’s 10-year-old Com Air stallion Cash Point into third.

And she wasn’t done yet. Helen and her homebred Vangelis S mare Larksong took seventh in the big class of the day, the 1.50m. James Billington was just 0.18 sec off the pace here to take second on the Cartani/Lord nine-year-old stallion VDL Cartello.

Claire Beecroft took second in the 3* 1.25m on the Vermont/Indoctro 10-year-old Burgana with Carron Nicol in third on the Cristo/Baldini I 11-year-old stallion Cristobal 21, a former ride of John Whitaker.

Helen took seventh in the young horse 1.25m on the six-year-old Calcourt Quicktime with Caron Nicol 11th on the Fantaland/Zeus six-year-old Zeusland.
