    Despite coming close in the past with Happy Times this was Sam’s first 4-star win.

    “The beautiful trophy has just arrived. It’s engraved with so many great riders, seeing Brocks’ and my name alongside them made it sink in what we’ve achieved. It’s a dream come true,” said Sam.

    The mare that Sam described as a “tough nut” is co-owned by Dinah Posford and her daughter Juliet Carter.
