In performance similar to Mark Todd’s catch-ride win at Badminton in 1994 on Horton’s Point, Chris Burton stepped in the irons of TS Jamaimo and came away with a victory at Adelaide CCI4*. Show jumping proved to be quite the test today, with only three double clear rounds. Chris and Jamaimo finished on their dressage score of 49.7 to take the win. Sonja Johnson, also double clear with Belfast Mojito, moved up to second. Craig Barrett and Sandhills Brillaire dropped one rail to finish third.
None of the top 5 after cross-country went clear in show jumping today; 8-fault rounds moved Shane Rose and Stuart Tinney out of the top three. Taurus dropped to fourth, just ahead of Pluto Mio who had a time fault along with two rails. Shane Rose’s other ride, CP Qualified, had two time along with two rails to finish seventh. Seumas Marwood and Wild Oats delivered the only other double clear round to finish the event in sixth.
