Louise Saywell and Keith Shore land wins in Denmark

June 3, 2017

The Brits found form in Uggeralne, Denmark, lifting the top two places in both the Nations Cup supporting classes.

Louise Saywell topped the 1.40m two-plase with James Hughes’ Acorado 14-year-old Peiter VI with 1.18 sec to spare, galloping ahead of Julie Andrews and the Oklund 14-year-old Wilando B in the 59-strong class. 

Keith Shore had the upper hand in the 3* 1.30m speed on the Triomphe De Muze 15-year-old Coriander Van’t Vennehof by just 0.30 sec.  Matt Sampson galloped into second place with the Lordanos 13-year-old Roi in the 45-strong class, and Julie Andrews was also penalty-free to slot Senator CC Catch II into ninth. 

In the 3* Nations Cup, they didn’t fare as well. William Funnell’s vast experience showed as he produced a faultless double clear on the promising Billy Congo nine-year-old Billy Buckingham, but it wasn’t enough to give Britain a podium finish and they took fifth.  Pathfinder Louise Saywell posted four and 12 on the Douglas/Cassini II nine-year-old Dassler, and Matt Sampson chipped in magnificently with clear in round one and just one error for four faults in round two on Carron Nicol’s Emerald Van’t Ruytershof eight-year-old Jaguar VD Berghoeve. Keith Shore had an uncharacteristic bad day on Mystic Hurricane to return four and 12. Britain’s hopes of a four fault total at halfway were dashed with a 16 total in round two for a 20 fault final total and fifth.

Host Country Denmark claimed victory on eight faults with France and Sweden a fence behind for equal second on 12. Belgium took fourth on 16.
