Kayleigh Watts is a winner in Poland


Kayleigh Watts and Winde, a 13-year-old Numero Uno/No Limit mare, headed the Gold tour 1.40m by 0.33 sec on week two of the Baltica Spring tour in Poland. Carron Nicol and Jaguar VD Berghoeve, a Belgian-bred stallion with Emerald Van’t Ruytershof/Nabab De Reve seven-year-old, took 13th.

An on-form Kayleigh also took fourth in the Gold tour 1.45m grand prix qualifier with the Calvaro Z/Heartbreaker nine-year-old Charmeur (pictured), just one sec off the pace in the seven-horse jump-off. Dan Neilson was eighth with a clear in round one on the Wolfgang 12-year-old Newton Nickel but elected not to jump-off, and Graham Gillespie on his home-bred nine-year-old Celine (Calvaro Z/Heartbreaker) took 10th with one time fault.

Jamie Gornall eased Le Beau into seventh in the Gold tour 1.35m.

Carron pushed the Singapore/Cassini I stallion Finnegan D into second in the six-year-old and also took ninth on the Belgian-bred Jumping Jack Flash Z, both jumping double clear. Four faults in the second phase dropped Kayleigh and Colton Playtime into 13th. And Carron was also fourth in the five-year-old with her home-bred Moonraker, by Fantaland out of a Remondo mare.

In the seven-year-old final, London based South African Genene Burnett took third and fourth on the Cristallo/Caretino gelding Vanda Gucci and Vanda Caviar, a Verdi/No Limit mare. Graham Gillespie took 10th in the 12-horse jump-off on the Cayado/Calato gelding Cayo Z with Dan Neilson just behind in 11th on the Billy Mexico sired Strides Hatton’s Treasure. Four faults in round one dropped Jamie into 21st on Clarence X.

Francesca Jones took 10th on Bijoux Valentina in the Silver tour 1* 1.20m and also claimed 10th in the 1m speed.
