Emma Stoker was beaming as she rode out of the prize giving for the R&R Stevenson Jewellers British Five-Year-Old Jumping Championship,she secured the fastest round in the jump off with Townhead Everton de Villee.“Top ten of some 70 starters and then to come in here and win is just fantastic,” she said. Tracy Priest was victorious in the Hickstead 1.25m Open Championship with Caristo — and only entered the class at the last minute.She was one of only four clears in the single-phase class and was delighted with eight-year-old Caristo VDL’s performance.“I’m really chuffed,” she said. “I was lucky to qualify yesterday and he delivered the goods today. “His record is unbelievable…he’s dropped down a level just to give him a sweetener because he is only eight.”
