Dodson & Horrell 85cm and 1.05m National Amateur Second Rounds at the Ian Stark Equestrian Centre

Tuesday 25 September 2018

Persia Bhatia featured strongly in the final two Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Second Rounds of the season at the Ian Stark Equestrian Centre in Selkirk, Scotland, to qualify for this year’s Dodson & Horrell National Amateur Championships at Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool on 13 – 18 November.

Dodson & Horrell 85cm National Amateur Second Round

Persia from Peebles, Peebleshire dominated the Dodson & Horrell 85cm National Amateur Second Round with the top two places on Molly XIII and Major Moonstone.

Seven from sixteen starters jumped round one clears to access the jump-off over course-designer Tracy Barraclough’s 10-fence track but none were a match for Persia and the Irish-bred 15-year-old Molly XIII, a partnership of four years.  The pair found every conceivable shortcut to break the 30 second barrier to win, and underscoring her domination, Persia brought second ride Major Moonstone into second, 1.83 seconds separating the two.
