Cammock's Winning Run Continues
CAMMOCK’S WINNING RUN CONTINUES
Emily Cammock’s winning run has continued picking up the quinella in the CNC3* at Eventing Canterbury’s one day horse trial at the NEC McLeans Island, near Christchurch, today.
Disappointingly, the class was reduced to just the three starters with the withdrawal of Giles Gormack (Amberley) and Lucero because of a stone bruise, but true to form, Cammock put up a dominant performance.
Little separated her two rides at the end of the dressage phase, sitting well clear of Susannah Stewart on Cowboy, who were making a return to this level after a long layoff. Clear jumping gave the more experienced, Shaw Lee, the advantage despite racking up 30.8 time penalties over the imposing track Nick Pyke-designed track to finish on 65.6. Lewis made the step up to 3* level with ease, jumping clear cross country but also came home with a fist of time penalties to take second, while Stewart and Cowboy’s disappointing showjumping round left them well out of contention, despite putting in an awesome effort across country.
Rangiora’s Brent Jury scored a big win in the CNC2*, leading throughout aboard SE Hedging. Just seven started the class, with Jury producing a lovely test to hold a slim lead over Kirsty Sharapoff (West Melton) on Shoot the Breeze and Lucy Turner (Broadfields) on Carbon after the dressage phase.
At just his first attempt at this level, the starry seven-year-old Thoroughbred flew round the Stephen Montgomery-designed track jumping clear, adding just 3.4 cross country time penalties, to take the win with 39.7 penalties. Clear jumping saw Turner and Carbon move up to finish second despite time faults, with Sharapoff and Shoot The Breeze slipping to third.
The hotly-contested CNC1* went the way of Brodie Roberts (Kaiapoi) on SR Livingstone moving up from eighth after the dressage with a smart jumping display, narrowly finishing outside the time allowed to add just 0.4 of a time penalty to their dressage total. It was close for second with Clarkville teen Maria Van Kuijk finishing just 0.7 penalties in arrears on Antara Whiskey Mac, with West Coast visitor Todd Magner on Kawhaka Concorde third.
Olivia Harkerss (Leeston) on Brooklee Smallchange and Mikayla Green (Rangiora) on Stars Ransom took out the two CNC105 divisions respectively, while the CNC95 was won by Melanie Morris on the eye-catching Kosciusko, all finishing on their dressage scores. And in the CNC80 classes the honours went to Nicola Sim (Ashburton) on Chocolate Ice and Michelle Coombes (Invercargill) Jusr Cash.
The event was the last major hit out before the two-day South Island Event Championships to be held at the same venue on November 8 & 9. It was also an opportunity for southern riders to pick up vital points NRM Young Rider, PGG Wrightson Junior Rider, Tru-test Amateur Rider, Equestrian Entries Pro Am Rider and Equestrifit StrapX Grass Roots series.
