Exciting younger horses create a stir across the levels
Lockdown training has paid off for Sarah Millis, whose “orange pocket rocket” Impressive VDC scored a prix st georges (PSG) double on his first attempt at the level.
“He went well in the six-year-old classes last year, but I’ve had that bit of extra time to build on his strengths,” said Sarah of the Charmeur gelding she bought as a youngster from Equine Elite, who scored more than 74% on the second day. “He’s an intelligent horse and enjoys his work.”
Sarah’s novice 39 winner, Kodora SRV, was another Equine Elite auction buy. “As soon as I sat on Dora, I thought, ‘I love this’,” said Sarah of Kate Moisson’s five-year-old mare. “She has such lovely natural balance, with a willing attitude and a big engine. And she was super-bold, for her first show.”
