Well we are officially underway with the 2013 Longines Global Champions Tour season. It was American Gold medallist Laura Kraut who won the class aboard Stone Hill Farm’s Wotsamillion. The 8 year old Irish bred gelding performed very well, delivering a very smooth round which was almost five seconds faster then Great Britain’s Tim Gredley. Tim Gredley was previously leading the class with his 17 year old gelding Unex Omelli but it was Laura who came through shortly after to take over the lead. Canadian’s Olympic team members Tiffany Foster and Victor delivered a classic clear round earlier on in the class, which offered them the third place finish in the first five-star event of the Longines Global Champions Tour season. We saw top combinations such as Edwina Tops-Alexander with Itot du Chateau, Luciana Diniz with her lovely grey stallion Winningmood as well as Richard Spooner with the very fast Cristallo, stretching their legs in the first class of the 2013 Longines Global Champions Tour season as they set to prepare for the big event tomorrow night. A great atmosphere here in Madrid as we look to the first Longines GCT Grand Prix of the new season.

Congratulations to Laura and Stone Hill Farm for a wonderful win. I think we can expect great things from this young Irish-bred gelding.
