At Morris Equestrian Centre, Lily Aspell, from Newmarket, wins the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Second Rounds, riding Donna Caldwell’s Legends Rock.
44 keen combinations came forward at the start, and nine combinations jumped double clear for a spot in the final jump off. The jump off saw five combinations jump clear so it would require a quick round to secure a ticket to HOYS, and a quick clear round is what this combination produced.
Lily piloted the 9 year-old dun gelding across the finish line just 0.04 seconds ahead of second place, stopping the clock at 33.15 seconds and securing this partnership the win.
Blue Chip rider Thomas Bradburne and Shovern Inca had just one down in the 2nd jump off, finishing in 8th place in a time of 34.56. All so close!
