Pancho Villa Vying for Top Placing at Jersey Fresh International

It was a super busy day for Boyd at the Jersey Fresh International, with four horses and six rides: both CIC horses show jumped and all four ran cross-country. The CCI horses will finish up with show jumping tomorrow.

Craig and Gloria Callen’s Welcome Shadow cantered around the CCI2* course to move up from 25th to 15th place with a clear round under the optimum time.

Pancho Villa, owned by the Pancho Villa Syndicate, added just .4 time faults to slide from 5th into 4th place in the CCI3*, and is within a rail of the leader, Buck Davidson on Ballynoecastle RM.

Steady Eddie, owned by George and Gretchen Wintersteen, Pierre Colin and Denise Lahey, was having an excellent round on the CCI3* course until he misjudged the distance at fence 22 and he and Boyd parted company, ending their Jersey experience a few fences short of the finish line.

Boyd was a little stiff and sore after taking a tumble but put on his game face and piloted SBF Cortez, owned by Pierre and Denise, around a slow but clear round to finish 17th overall in the CIC2*.
