Laura Renwick topped the Glock’s seven and eight-year-old final with Sharon Whiteway’s powerful Novita Jovial Z on the last day of the spectacular Glock’s Perfection tour.
Forget if Carlsberg did shows, Glock is on another stratosphere. This show is on the Dom Perignon/Krug level with its heated, liberally-decorated arenas, champagnes and fabulous entertainment – this weekend boasted Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart and Leona Lewis.
And Laura got the day off to a great start in the 20-strong 1.35/140m young horse final. Eight reached the jump and six returned to again prove penalty-free to put the onus on the clock. Known for her prowess against the clock, Laura guided the talented seven-year-old Nabab De Reve daughter into victory with more than two sec to spare.
“Winning always feels great, but it’s even a bit better here in this fantastic atmosphere,” said Laura.
Germany had to settle for second and third with two eight-year-olds – Marco Kutscher in the runner-up spot on Colincor (Captain Fire/Cornet Oblensky) and Janne Frederike Meyer-Zimmermann on Flipper La Premiere (Flipper D’Elle/Acord II).
Four faults in the first round of the world ranking 3* 1.55m grand prix dropped Laura with Top Dollar and William Whitaker aboard Fandango down to 15th and 16th. Switzerland’s Martin Fuchs claimed the win in the 11-strong decider with Cool and Easy with a 0.68 sec advantage over Latvia’s Kristaps Neretneiks on Moon Ray.
