Three Podiums from Three Starts for Tegan

Three Podiums from Three Starts for Tegan

Tegan Fitzsimon and the delightful Windermere Cappuccino have notched another win in the POLi Payments World Cup (NZ) Series, this time at the Feilding IA&P Show at Manfeild.

The inform Christchurch combination made it back-to-back wins in the series, heading home a small but quality field as the only ones to go double clear and inside time over the two rounds. The Feilding class is the only one in the five-round series to be held indoors.

Three combinations had clean slates at the end of the opening round – Tegan aboard Windermere Cappuccino, Brooke Andrea (Waipukurau) on LT Holst Andrea and young gun Briar Burnett-Grant (Taupo) on her former Olympic Cup winner Fiber Fresh Veroana. Logan Massie (Dannevirke) and Intellect carried through four, with eight faults apiece for Robert Steele (Dannevirke) on LT Holst Bernadette and Emily Hayward (Te Awamutu) with Belischi HM.

However, it was all Tegan’s way in the second as the only rider to stay on zero penalties. Brooke picked up a single time fault to settle for second while Briar added eight for third.

Ironically, Tegan hadn’t planned on starting at the event but made a late decision to head south from their temporary Hawke’s Bay base to tackle the Gary Sinclair-designed course.

“It rode well I think,” she said. “Vollie (Windermere Cappuccino) didn’t warm up particularly well. I don’t think he liked the surface in the warm-up but once in the ring, he jumped really well. He tried so hard – and he always does.”
Her plan for the second round wasn’t to go “crazy fast” but instead to give him a nice little run. “I feel we are more back on track now,” said Tegan who is the defending champion of the series.

The winner of the New Zealand series has the opportunity to represent the nation at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas next year.

In the Country TV Pony Grand Prix, Lily Moore (Hawke’s Bay) and the very experienced Fun House have continued their successful new partnership with a win. They were one of two combinations from the 11 starters to go double clear but their 39.34-second time just edged out Samantha Carrington (Takapau) aboard Colours of Lansing who stopped the clock at 40.28. Third-placed Phoebe Howson (Hastings) and Aorangi Ragtime were super slick with their 33.13-second time in the jump-off but paid for their speed with a rail.
