Annabel Shields Wins at Fife
Tuesday 29 May 2018
Durham’s Annabel Shields dominates the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier at Fife Agricultural Show
The second British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier of the season saw twenty-two combinations start in the class at the Fife Agricultural Show in Kinloss on Saturday and it was Annabel Shields who claimed the top two places.
With three qualification places available for the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show, each combination came forward with much determination to tackle the testing 1.35m track put in place by course designer Nigel Jess.
With just six clear rounds produced in round one, in the jump off they faced a shortened but equally challenging course and to the delight of the crowd it was lady rider Annabel who galloped home to victory.
Annabel travelled from Durham to contest the class and her journey was certainly worthwhile having taken ownership of two of the top three placings. Victory was hers on board the 7 year-old chestnut mare Gerona, owned by Robert Shields as they produced a seamless clear round in the time of 43.57 seconds. Snapping up second place, this time Annabel partnered with Epke, the 9 year-old black gelding owned by Chloe Page, and they crossed the finish line in 46.55 seconds.
