McVean holds cards going into day two

Olympic and world championships show jumper Katie McVean holds all the cards going into the second day of the NZ National Jumping and Showhunter Championships in Christchurch tomorrow.

The 23-year-old from Mysteryu Creek and her FEI World Cup (NZ League) Final winning mount Dunstan Springfield currently lead the prestigious McMillan Equine Feeds NZ Senior Horse Grand Prix after a sizzling speed round this evening where rails down are turned into seconds.

Just eight started the first round of the gruelling three-day competition at the NEC McLeans Island, with McVean taking full advantage of starting last, jumping clear in 76.66 seconds to nab the lead from rising star Logan Massie (Dannevirke) and Kiwi Ludo, who finished in 78.43. McVean sits third on Dunstan Kiwi Iron Mark after producing the fastest round against the clock but paid for it with one rail down.

Going into tomorrow, McVean sits on 0 penalties just 0.89 of a penalty in front of Massie with Dunstan Kiwi Iron Mark on 1.57, and Vicki Wilson (Hikurangi) on Ngahiwi Showtym Premier fourth on 2.25 faults. Overall, just over two rails separate the entire field.

The Fiber Fresh One Star Horse Grand Prix is much more clear cut after Invercargill’s Nicole White and Cricklewood Ace blitzed the field with a sensational round almost 10 seconds clear of her nearest rival.

Jumping first, White jumped the round of her life finishing setting the time to beat in a scorching 59.78, which none of her 15 counterparts managed to even come close to. Vicki Wilson and Showtym Levado were the closest but had two rails down, dropping her to fifth.

White goes into tomorrow with more than a ail in hand over Simon Wilson (Waipukurau) and Midway Smooth Dude second on 4.25, McVean on Dunstan Lucca third on 5.19, and Claire Wilson (Waipukurau) fourth on Tipsey on 5.76.

The first rounds of the other championship classes get underway tomorrow as well as the second rounds for both the Senior Horse Grand Prix and One Star Horse Grand Prix. Faults are carried over with the finals on Sunday.
