AES very strong at Hickstead Derby show

In the Sunday Derby of Hickstead, no horse could jump clear, but on Friday in the 1.60m Derby Trial, three did. It made them jump off for the victory and it was only David Simpson from Ireland who left up all rails again. The British AES breeder and rider Will Funnell was faster, but had one down with Billy Onslow (Billy Congo), to finish up in second. On Sunday in the historical Equestrian.com Derby, Funnell and his home bred horse placed tenth. His father Billy Congo (Vechta) had been placed third on Thursday in the 1.50m. Many more AES-horses did well on the Hickstead CSI4* Derby show. In Saturdays Derby Trophy 1.50m, three AES horses were part of the jump-off with four. Victory went to Billy Twomey and Thomas (Quidam de Revel), which already placed second in the openings class on Thursday. Philip Miller and Unbelievable Lady (Unbelievable Darco) were second just like on Thursday in the 1.50m and fourth spot on Saturday’s 1.50m also went to AES with Anthony Condon and the stallion Aristio (Arko III). They had one down in the jump-off. Henry Turell and Blaze of Glory II (Caretino Glory) had a single time penalty in the first round and placed sixth.
