The British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier took place at a rainy Bramham Horse Trials in West Yorkshire on Saturday. Forty-nine combinations came forward to take on Dianne Boddy’s thirteen fence track with the hopes of gaining one of the three qualifying tickets on offer for the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show.
Fourteen combinations went through the jump-off and it was the on-form Yorkshireman Paul Barker who came out on top with Tracy Holder’s Crispina Z, a 9 year-old British bred mare by Corofino I whom Paul has shared the ride with Tracy since 2017. They stopped the clock in 44.63 seconds, the quickest time of the class.
Harry Whall took the runners up spot with his own Exsultate Des Hayettes, a 9 year-old Belgian bred stallion by Mozart Des Hayettes; they crossed the finish line in 45.72 seconds. The remaining qualifying ticket went to William Bayes Jones and his own Arianna, a 9 year-old British bred by Handel Elite. They posted a double clear in 45.80 seconds.
