Categories: None | Tags: None

Suregrow's sponsored rider Oliver Townend has started the season on top form with 2 wins at Isleham and another at Oasby.

ODT Ghareeb took a win in the Open Intermediate at Isleham – the only horse to make the intermediate optimum time, and therefore the only one to finish on a dressage score. ‘The older he gets, the better he gets’, Oliver says. While new ride Dromgurrihy Blue had a solid cross country clear to finish 5th.

Note Worthy won the Open Novice section by over 5 marks.

Oasby was very busy for Oliver with 13 rides, 10 of which posted top 5 placings. Ballaghmor Cross won top spot in the Intermediate section with a dressage score of 23.6, nearly 10 points clear of the field with Power Drive as runner up. Kanga Rouge finished 2nd in the Novice & Pursuit & Tregilder finished 2nd in the BE100 (both Power Drive and Kanga Rouge again on dressage score completions).

Treboy & Harthill Diamond took 3rd place in their sections & Peruising, Cooley SRS & Cooley Master Class took 5th place in theirs.
