The 4 star class this year saw number increase with 26 entered.  K Taliana & Trevalgar II finished the day in front on 31 penalty points just ahead of E Bishop & CP Issey Miyake on 31.50 then L Browne & Sky's Da Limit on 32.30.  New Zealander E Cammock & Shaw Lee held 4th place on 32.90 from H Shannon & Willungapark Clifford on 33.90 and S Johnson & Misty Isle Valentino on 34.60.  With just over 20 penalty points covering the entire field competition was tight going into the cross country phase.  In the 3 star dressage A Ross and Dicavalli Diesel took the end on 31.50 penalties from D Stokes and Koyuna Levi on 33.70 and S Rose & Ultimate Velocity on 35.70 anda again it was barely 20 penalty points from first to last in the field of 15.  The biggest class of the event the 2 star saw R Lee & Urodel Du Texier in front on 31.00 from C Lyall & GI Joe on 31.20 and A Ross & Dondiablo on 31.60 with C McDermott & Klydoscope next on 31.80 and again 20 penalty points covered the entire field of 47 competitors.

Cross Country day provided plenty of changes on the leaderboards and some controversy.  In the 4 star K Taliana & Trevalgar II looked to be travelling well until they made a mistake and parted company coming through the Equestrian Australia Ditch and Brush.  E Bishop & CP Issey Miyake were going well until the second time through the water where CP Issey Miyake was slightly distracted before take off by volunteer chasing away the ducks and although back on track for the take off into the water missed the third element for 20 penalties.  Another refusal later on course plus time penalties resulted in an overall score of 99.90 and dropping back to 8th position.  L Browne & Skye's Da Limit also had a couple of stops and time penalties resulting in an overall score of 107.90.  H Shannon & Willungapark Clifford recorded 17.60 time penalties to finish the cross country on 51.50 penalty points in second position while A Pottinger & Just Kidding also only incurred time penalties of 12.4 to finish on 47.20 and the lead onteh second day.  E Gray and Jocular Vision were the stars of the cross country finishing with the lowest penalties with only 9.6 time on a challenging course and sitting in third on 67.30 after being last after the dressage.  S Johnson and Misty Isle Valentino had one refusal and 13.20 time to finish on 67.80 and 4th place.  In the end the course clamed half the field with only 12 combinations making it through to compete on the third and final day.

The 3 star cross country wasnt quite as dramatic but still saw a lot of changes on the leaderboard.  A Ross and Dicavelli Diesel jumped clear but recorded 36.40 time penalties to drop to 8th position on 67.90 while D Stokes and Koyuna Levi was eliminated early on course.  S Rose & Ultimate Velocity went clear jumping and just 4.4 time penalties to take the lead on 40.10 penalty points from Callum Buczak & Matavia Cheval who were the best of the 3 star moving up from 11th going clear jumping and just 1.2 time penalties for a score of 41.90 while A Cooper & Oaks Onyx moved up from 12th with only 10.8 penalties for a score of 53.60 in third place.  In the two star  R Lee & Urodel Du Texier had a refusal on course and also incurred 19.6 time penalties for an overall score of 70.6 penalty points.  C Lyall & Gi Joe had to retire after pulling up sore on the flat between jumps while A Ross & Dondiablo recorded 3.6 time penalties to drop to 5th on 35.20 and C McDermott & Kyldoscope were eliminated during the cross country.  The new leader of the event after the cross country phase was S Jeffree & Jaybee Calypso on 33.10 after going clear on both jumping and time with E Mason & Aramatai Fox moving up from 5th to 2nd with 1.6 time penalties to 34.40 while Shane Rose & Easy Turn moved up from 12th to 3rd going clear and likewise Niki Rose returning to the event after several years absence riding Glenorchy South Park also went clear to move up from 14th to 4th place.               

Into the final phase the showjumping where in the four star H Shannon & Willungapark Clifford had 8 faults from two fences to finish on 59.50 and came from second to take out the event from A Pottinger & Just Kidding who had 3 fences leeway from H Shannon but knocked four rails to just miss making it a second win in a row for New Zealand finishing on 63.20 while S Johnson & Misty Isle Valentino was third on 78.80 and E Gray and Jocular Vision 4th on 80.30 after three tough days of competition.  In the three star class S Rose & Ultimate Velocity were also in second place before record one rail and 2 time penalties for a score of 46.10 but when leaders C Buczak & Matavia Cheval knocked two rails for a score of 49.90 it was a popular victory for the crowd favourite.  A Cooper & Oaks Onyx had a rail down to finish third on 57.60.  In the 2 star class S Rose & Easy Turn went double clear to finish on 34.90 while the only other double clear (rails and time) of the class was S Tinney & Leporis who finished second on 36.90 and moved up from 7th.  Third went to E Mason & Aramatai Fox on 38.40 after knocking one rail while N Rose & Glenorchy South Park were fourth after also knocking a single rail on 39.00.

The Young Rider Championship was taken out by S Landy & Humble Glory from local rider S Hann & True Celebre.  Humble Glory raced as Camon Houdini and after one run on the flat showed some ability in a hurdle trial but after one jumps start was retired over three years ago before he arrived to S Landy with minimal equestrian training but was soon competing with success in eventing.

The winner of the 4 star TRSA Off the Track award was Willungapark Clifford who
was registered to race as Sidespin but in two trials as an early season 2yo in October 2007 he proved too slow to race and was retired. 

  In the 3 star class the TRSA Off the Track award went to Belinda Isbister's mount Here To Stay with a total of 70.40 penalty points and 5th overall.  Here to Stay is by Johar from Strike the Belle (by Straight Strike) was bred in New Zealand and raced as Spookles.  He trialled twice as a 2yo before making his debut in late December as s 3yo in a Maiden at Ellerslie.  He was unplaced and was then given a let up before running last in his second race in March 2011 at Waikato.  Spelled he was given one more prep where he was unplaced in a trial in November 2011 before he was retired to an equestrian career.

The 2 star TRSA Off the track award went to N Rose & Glenorchy South Park who was registed to race as Beaker and by Kinjite from an Alannon mare should have had speed to burn but was retired before an official race start.
