Adelaide enjoyed a great day of cross-country today in the CCI4*. Two-time winner Stuart Tinney leads with Pluto Mio, moving up from second place after dressage with a clear round just one second over the optimum time. Shane Rose and Taurus moved up to second with the same 0.4 time added; his dressage-winning partner CP Qualified was 16 seconds slow and sits in third.
While there were 16 clear rounds, only two riders made the time: Sonja Johnson with Parkiarrup Illicit Liason, and Chris Burton with TS Jamaimo. Four riders had one stop each, and four others did not complete the course. All in all, it appears it was a very successful day; the top 6 are separated by less than a rail going into show jumping tomorrow.
John Kyle of FEITV reviewed the day’s action, noting that Chris Burton has ridden TS Jamaimo for less than a week! Not a bad catch ride to go double clear at a CCI4*.
