Julie Andrews rounds off a great Wierden show with another win
On the final day at Wierden 2*, The Netherlands, Julie Andrews rounded off a great week, posting another win with Emelie Marsh’s ultra-consistent Baloubet Du Rouet mare Canora in the 1.35m. And they did it in style, winning the class an incredible 4.77 sec ahead of their nearest rival, The Netherlands Manon Hees on Diamond.
William Funnell claimed fifth in the 1.45m world ranking Grand Prix on the Vechta/Animo stallion Billy Congo almost three sec behind the winner, The Netherlands’ Jelmer Hoekstra on Quinoa Des Riollets.
Spencer Roe was fractionally behind for sixth on Wonder Why and James Billington took seventh in the 10-horse jump-off on Baltic VDL. Ireland’s Conor Drain took eighth, also double clear on Audi’s Faults Free.
William also finished fifth on the Billy Congo nine-year-old Billy Chatter in the 1* 1.30m. John Popely and the six-year-old For Fun took 11th in the 18-strong jump-off.
Brits were out of luck on the final day at Samorin, Slovakia. Jamie Wingrove finished in 15th on five faults with Cardigan Z in the 1.50m Grand Prix and Charlotte Flack finished down the line on Ashdale Luxara.
