Emma Stoker gets the Baltica tour off to a flying start
Emma Stoker jumped to a win at the start of the three week Baltica tour at Ciekocinko in Poland.
She claimed two of the top three places on day one, topping the speed class on Cool Cash (Cadensky/Dollar Dela Pierre) and claiming third with the Kannan daughter Balzane Du Mazes. And the pair of horses finished fourth and sixth in day two’s two-phase in the same order, Cool Cash 0.63 sec behind the winner.
After posting clear rounds on day one to finish equal first, Emma jumped into eighth in day two's six-year-old with an easy double clear more than three sec behind the pace on the Graf Top/Stakkato stallion Grand Stakkato. Mark Hallion was also penalty-free on the California daughter Hinde ES for 11th and Emma posted clear and four on second ride, the Clarimo-sired Clarence, to take 15th.
In the five-year-old Emma picked up sixth and 12th, Illonois (Zambesi/Cassanova) returning a double clear and Q Seven (Quiad I/Stakkato) returned four in the first phase but jumped clear in the second.
