William Fox-Pitt and Little Fire blaze to Houghton victory while Brits top eventing Nations Cup opener *H&H Plus*

  • WILLIAM FOX-PITT and Little Fire made short work of the Saracen Horse Feeds Houghton International CCIO4*-S  to seal their win with a deceptively quick cross-country round.

    The 12-year-old gelding, with whom William was ninth at Badminton 2019, breezed around Alec Lochore’s track to come home a comfortable four seconds inside the time.

    William, who co-owns the horse with Jennifer Dowling, said to win was “a nice surprise”.
