We’ve all had an extremely busy week here at the Billy Stud, both at home and abroad – braving the weather!
Sunshine Tour Results
The sun was out in Spain at the beginning of the week with many clears and results from the Billy Stud team;
Hannah Berryman’s 5yo Billy Harmony (Cevin Z x Billy Congo) jumped two lovely double clears, coming 12th on Wednesday.
6 year olds:
Billy Baltic (Billy Congo x Animo) ridden by Georgie Crumley, Billy Flintstone (Billy Mexico x Vechta) & Billy Mozette (Tangelo Van De Zuuthoeve x Billy Congo) all jumped clear with Billy Spiral (Tangelo Van De Zuuthoeve x Billy Mexico) jumping clear both days in the 6yo classses.
The 7yos have also been on flying form:
Billy Cadenza (Cevin Z x Animo) double clear on Wednesday, the handsome stallion Billy Tudor (Cevin Z x Andiamo) jumped two fantastic clears both days and placing 18th on Wednesday, Billy Fleance (Tangelo Van de Zuuthoeve x Billy Mexico) & Jess Dimmock also jumped lovey clears and placed both days – 19th & 6th & the grey stallion Billy Du Montois (Cevin Z x Abdullah) jumped double clear with Lucy on Wednesday.
Billy Rembrandt (Billy Congo x Kroongraff), who still hasn’t touched a pole whilst in Spain jumped clear for 7th place both days. Rembrandt is out of the dam Siena (KWPN, mare by Kroongraaf), the same dam as Billy Angelo.
The weather then turned in Spain with the arrival of Storm Emma and the jumping was cancelled on Thursday & Friday due to torrential rain, high speed winds and flooded arenas!
The older horses were back out jumping at the weekend with Billy Angelo (Tangelo Van de Zuuthoeve x Kroongraff) jumping a superb and speedy clear in the Small Grand Prix and finishing 2nd!
Billy Gogo (Billy mexico x La Poco) was clear and 13th & Billy Fraulein (Billy Congo x PB Capitol) who was sold to Sofia Abramovich (RUS) also jumped clear to finish 5th.
