The 1m55 Longines Christmas Cracker at the Olympia Horse Show in London fell prey to Irish rider Darragh Kenny. With only eight combinations qualified for the jump-off it was between him and Dutch rider Bart Bles.
1. Darragh Kenny - Classic Dream
2. Bart Bles - Gin D
3. William Whitaker - RMF Echo
Kenny could count on his Classic Dream (Colestus) with whom he finished in a brilliant 30.82 seconds. With that time he beat Dutchie Bart Bles who aboard his 13 year old BWP stallion Gin D (Clinton I) finished in 31.99 seconds in second place. In third place we then found William Whitaker and RMF Echo (Virus de Laubry) who finished in 33.13 seconds. He shared his third place with Max Kühner and Cornet Kalua (Cornet Obolensky).
.Earlier today it was William Funnell who aboard Billy McCain took home the 1m50 Father Christmas Stakes.
