Equestrianism: Boon leads after first day
Friday 28 May 2004
Terry Boon held the overnight advantage on Drivetime after yesterday's first full day of dressage, at the Windsor International Horse Trials. He ended 6.2 points ahead of Polly Williamson, who moved into second place on Wicked Time, overtaking Patricia Polson on Peppershill Oscar by a narrow 0.8 points margin. Polson, 44, who gave up eventing before the birth of her two children, made her comeback two years ago.
Boon believes he is now back to full fitness, after breaking his leg in a fall at Henbury Hall.
UAE WINDSOR INTERNATIONAL HORSE TRIALS (Berks): Standings after first full day of dressage: 1 Drivetime (T Boon) 36.6 penalties; 2 Wicked Time (P Williamson) 42.8; 3 Peppershill Oscar (P Polson) 43.6; 4 James (C Clague Reading) 46.6; 5 Ensign (P Funnell) 49.8; 6= Flurry Knox V (I Taylor) and Plantagenet of Rushall (L Brassey) 50.0.
