It was another weekend of success stories for Billy horses in the sunshine at The Sunshine Tour in Spain where we had 2 winners! Alice Watson continued on from a great opening week last week with the wonderful Billy Lemon (Cevin Z x Andretti) when the pair came out on top in a 3* 1.40m class. Also at the top of the podium, Alison Barton and Billy Rembrandt (Billy Congo x Kroongraaf) took a commanding victory in the Tio Pepe Trophy.
