Thrilling end to Victorian Jumping Championships

By Equestrian Life

The NVSJC Victorian State Titles have concluded in Shepparton today after a nail-biting finish in the Final Round of the Senior Rider State Title class. 

Senior State Title Final – Sponsored by Horse and Country

With only .300 of a second separating first and second place, Ally Lamb and Eagle Rock have raced home with a clear round of 52.270 seconds to win the final round of the Victorian Senior Rider State Title for 2023.

However, with consistent performances across the weekend, it was in fact Olympian Russell Johnstone and Daprice who ulimately claimed the overall Victorian Senior State Title. The pair were third behind Ally and Eagle Rock in the final class, finishing in a very quick time of 50.150, and with just the single rail down at the first fence.

Jumping clear in a time of 52.570 for second place in the final was Andrew Lamb and Oaks Ever Red. 

In fourth place came Hayden Parker and Tulara Spangenberg with a time of 52.500, also unluckily dropping the first and ninth fences. 

Andrew Lamb also collected fifth place for his ride with Janory DP with a time of 53.540, but knocked a rail again on that tricky first fence, and on Jump 8.

Following their clear round on Friday which placed them in the lead for the Junior Rider State Title, Sienna Holdsworth-Rose and Coolart Farm Short Torque continued on today to claim the Title. 

Out of the 24 riders from the Final Round, 16 combinations progressed to the Jump Off, with Sienna and Coolart Farm Short Torque collecting the win with zero faults in 40.980 seconds.

Tanner Robinson collected both second and third place with clear rounds on Yalambis Corlandia with 42.060 seconds and on Charlie with 43.850 seconds.  

In fourth place came Darcy Prime riding Saddle Up Bella, also with a clear round on 45.540 seconds.

Sienna Holdsworth-Rose placed again in fifth with Atlas E on a lovely clear round with 46.740 on the clock.

Young Rider State Title Final – Sponsored by KY Civil 

In the Young Rider State Title class, Mikayla Hogg has claimed victory with BellHaven Corringa in the Jump Off with a clear round of 45.050 seconds.

In second place, Lorna Reilly and Bellhaven Jazz also finished a neat, clear round in 46.810, with Hudson Craig and Oaks Botswana in third, completing the course in a speedy 44.550 but unfortunately dropped a rail on the second last fence.

The only other combination to progress into the Jump Off, Zoe Waller and Bequest, completed the course in 49.900 seconds to claim fourth place.
