Day four of the 2023 Bolesworth International was a sun-soaked summer Saturday to remember.
It was a winning day for George Whitaker, taking both the FMBs Therapy Systems CSI1* 1.30m with Zirocca Zoom, and the LeMieux CSI3* 1.40m with Peanut. Setting off at speed from the start, only a second separated George Whitaker and second placed Emma Stoker with Daisy. Following in third was Sophie Evans with Csio Bel. The on-form stallion Peanut, owned by Samantha Jayne Lambert, is certainly one to watch going into tomorrow’s Cavago CSI3* Grand Prix, posting a hattrick of clear rounds over the course of the show so far.
The amateur classes at Bolesworth International have been highly competitive. It was an Irish 1,2,3 in the Roewer & Rueb CSIAm-A 1.15m, with Robyn Mcowan taking the top spot with Zuidam. The on-form Rachel Gredley took 2nd and 3rd with Jalanna and Hobalo, respectively.
As anticipation builds for tomorrow’s Cavago CSI3* 1.50m Grand Prix, all eyes are on Graham Gillespie, Emma Stoker, and Tim Gredley, all of whom have already won a Grand Prix Qualifier this week. Another strong contender is that of George Whitaker with the talented stallion Peanut, a combination who haven’t rolled a pole this week and continue to improve with every round.
It’s all to play for and promises a thrilling end to what has been an exciting week of sport at the Bolesworth International. Tickets are available to purchase on the gate, we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
