Three Windurra Horses in the Lead after Cross Country at 2017 Millbrook Horse Trials

Boyd has three horses in the lead after cross country today at Millbrook Horse Trials. 

We were lucky that the predicted rainstorms did not make an appearance today, and the saturated ground quickly dried out to the perfect consistency for galloping and jumping. In his last run before heading to England to compete at the Burghley CCI4* Steady Eddie, owned by Denise Lahey, Pierre Colin and George and Gretchen Wintersteen, was fast and clear around Tremaine Cooper’s Advanced track, adding just two time penalties to his dressage score – the fastest round of the day – to take the lead.

The three “green” advanced horses had a positive day as well: Tura Lura, Gloria Callen’s Irish mare, jumped clear and moved up to 14th place. Nancy Hathaway and Steven Blauner’s Hanoverian gelding Bonito moved up to 17th from 24th place. Long Island T, owned by the Long Island T Syndicate, glanced off the tricky skinny fence after the water complex but got it right on the second try and had a solid overall performance in his first run at this level.

After coming back from an injury SBF Cortez, owned by Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin, leads the OI-A division. Stable mate Ray Price is in 8th place after a clear round. The pretty mare Contessa, owned by Gloria Callen, Fernanda Kellogg, Densey Juvonen and Kelly Morgan, leads the competitive OI-B division.

Many thanks to all of our owners and supporters, and to the hardworking volunteers who kept the grounds impeccably maintained during this morning when the ground was muddy, and who worked to keep the event on schedule after a few delays today. It was a first-class day of equestrian sport.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s show jumping finale!
