EQUESTRIANISM : Repeat for Santa's Echo

Click to follow
Tim Stockdale repeated last year's victory when he rode Toggi Santa's Echo to win yesterday's Land Rover Classic on the second day of the Royal Windsor Horse Show, writes Genevieve Murphy from Windsor. Only Peter Charles on Greystone came close to the winning time.

Marie Edgar, who was fourth on Everest Winstar in the class that Stockdale won, had the satisfaction of defeating Michael Whitaker when she rode the nine-year-old Swedish-bred Aladdin to win the earlier Land Rover Grade A Jumping.

Edgar plans to ride Winstar when she defends her women's national title today, while Aladdin is saved for tomorrow evening's Lancaster Landmark Grand Prix.

Winstar is likely to have a further engagement in tomorrow's Land Rover British Horsemaster, in which four riders compete on their own and each other's horses.
