Friday saw the 4 star competitors in action where 2 of the 13 were thoroughbreds. Madison Crowe & Waitangi Pinterest were in first place on 28.50 from crowd favourite Shane Rose & Easy Turn on 28.70 with Jessica Rae & Rascal in third on 30.60. The two thoroughbreds in the class were Quaprice ridden by Annabel Armstrong who raced as Killop and is descended from the champion mare Leilani via her ‘miracle foal’ Skylarking. Skylarking was conceived only after Leilani who had been barren for years received a new treatment at the time resulting in one last foal by Twig Moss.Despite her regal breeding Killop was unsuccessful in three races and was soon retired and moved to a new career. And Humble Glory ridden by Sophia Landy who raced as Camon Houdini. After showing nothing in trials in Sydney he was sent to Melbourne as a 3yo where he won and was placed in trials over hurdles. However after one jumps start as a March 3yo where he was unplaced he was retired to an equestrian career.
The 5 star dressage was the focus of the
afternoon where there were 19 competitors including 6 thoroughbreds. Emma
Bishop & CP Issey Miyake were in front at the end of the day on 30.30 from
Hazel Shannon & Willingapark Clifford on 30.70. Willingapark Clifford a
former winner of the event twice & raced as Sidespin where he had 3 starts
before retiring and finding his forte in eventing. Lauren Browne & Sky’s Da
Limit was in third place on 31 penalty points and Sky’s Da Limit is another
off the track horse being unplaced in 4 trials over his 2 & 3yo seasons.
Like the other classes there was a very small spread of scores with all
competitors under 44 penalties after the dressage.
Emma Bishop & CP Issey Miyake parted company late in the course to be eliminated in the 5 star class while Hazel Shannon & Willingapark Clifford completed the course without penalty to take the lead on their dressage score. Amanda Pottinger moved up to second with Just Kidding after going clear cross country on a score of 34.10. Just Kidding raced as Sun of God in New Zealand and had 3 starts with all unplaced. Diane Gilder & Your Attorney recorded 5.2 time penalties but moved up to third place with 38.60. Your Attorney was yet another off the track thoroughbred having a very short career of one trial and one race start before being retired. Lauren Browne & Sky’s Da Limit recorded 8 time penalties to be fourth on 39 penalty points.
Into the last day of showjumping and first up
the 3 star event was decided and Gemma Tinney Diablo withstood the pressure
of going last and went clear to win on 29.60 with Teegan Ashby & Waitangi
Password second on 32.40 and Samuel Jeffree & Woodmount Lolita third on
36.60 despite dropping a rail. The winner of the TRSA Off the Track award
for the highest placed OTT thoroughbred went to Andrew Cooper and Omega Star
who was registered as Burgoo. The Young rider went to Samuel Jeffree &
Woodmount Lolita with the Off the Track young rider award going to Steph
Hann and True Celebre (who raced under that name winning 2 races in
provincial Victoria from 19 plus 3 placings).
The 5 star class finished the day and coming to the last rider Hazel Shannon and Willingapark Clifford had 4 rails in hand and in the end although two rails fell they had enough in hand to win on 38.70 and became the first combination to win the event three times. Willingapark Clifford also took out the TRSA Off the track award. In second place was Stuart Tinney & Leporis despite one rail and 1.2 time faults moved up from 5th to second place overall on 45.90. Third place went to Lauren Browne and Sky’s Da Limit who had two rails and 0.40 of a time fault to finish third on 47.40. Sky’s Da Limit made it two off the track thoroughbreds in the top 3 placings at the event while second placed Leporis was noted as being a Warmblood/Thoroughbred cross.
The teams event in the 5 start went to NSW on a score of 131.30 with team members Hazel Shannon & Willingapark Clifford, Stuart Tinney & Leporis, Tim Boland & Menlo Park and Shenae Lowings & Bold Venture.
In the World Cup round held prior to the 5 start showjumping Russell Johnstone & Daprice were the only competitors to go double clear over the two rounds to take out the event.
