FEI Eventing World Cup News

Nick Roe (AUS), riding the 11-year old gelding Wondaree Hooley Dooley, won the tenth leg of the FEI Eventing World Cup held at Werribee Park (AUS) from
7 to 9 June. The pair completed one of only two clear Jumping rounds and finished convincing winners with a final score of 55.1 points, nearly 10 points ahead of their nearest rival. Roe had placed 6th after the Dressage test with 51.1 points (65.94%) and 3rd after the Cross Country where he had earned four penalties for exceeding the time allowed.

The only other clear round went to Michael Baker and his 14-year old gelding G.S. Chevalier, which moved them from 8th to runner up position with a final score of 64.3 points.

The third place went to 1996 Olympic Team Champion Wendy Schaeffer on Sun Shades. Schaeffer, who had placed 2nd after Dressage (41.5 points - 72.32%), performed the competition's best Cross Country scoring no penalties. This was all the more remarkable as she had initially been eliminated from Cross Country for allegedly taking out a flag. She was reinstated after her appeal backed by video evidence had been upheld. The pair were relegated to the 3rd position with a final score of 65.5 points after knocking down six rails during the Jumping test.

Megan Jones and Kirby Park Irish Hallmark, who performed the best Dressage test (40.4 points - 73.04%) and was 2nd after Cross Country, placed 4th after dropping three rails and incurring seven time penalties.
