Lance Whitehouse races to the top in Oliva Nova

January 24, 2019

Lance Whitehouse jumped to the top in the big class of the day at Oliva Nova, Spain, with Bazento.

Eighty-four competitors contended the gold 1.45m speed but no-one was a match for Lance and the nine-year-old Argento/Quincy Z stallion Bazento and they swept into the lead to take victory by 0.62 sec.  Jodie Hall-McAteer’s steadier clear on Coquin De Coquerie Z claimed 21st.

Jodie hit top gear in the silver 1.35m speed on TJ Quincy to take second by the narrowest of margins, the 11-year-old Quintender stallion finishing just 0.01 sec behind the winner in the 70-strong class.

Emma Stoker claimed three of the top five places in the five-year-old, winning by 0.96 sec with the Super Trooper De Ness/Indoctro mare Skylandria Z.  She also posted double clears on Chico II (Cador/Escudo I) and Carisma II (Contendro I/Graf Top) for third and fifth.

Four faults in the second phase of the six-year-old 1.30m dropped Emma and Illonois to ninth.

Scott Brash jumped into third in the 33-strong seven-year-old 1.40m two-phase with the Elvis Ter Putte/Lord Z stallion Hello Zachary 1.56 sec off the pace.  Emma returned double clears on Happynes (Eldorado Van De Zeshoek/Cicero Z Van Paemel) and Milton (Emerald Van’t Ruytershof/Heartbreaker) for fifth and sixth while one time fault in the second phase put Anna Wilks on Guestlist into 15th.

Emma slotted Townhead Tallulah V into sixth place in the 73-entry gold 1.40m speed, the Tabasco La Silla 14-year-old 2.38 sec behind the winner.   

Joanne McGlory eased the eight-year-old Flaming Key SR Z into 11th in the 57-strong silver 1.25m speed more than 12 sec behind the pace.
