New Zealand’s Mark Todd won the international 3-star CCI at the Chatsworth Horse Trials at the weekend, riding Irish Sport Horse, Amacuzzi, who was previously competed by racehorse trainer Stuart Crawford.
Amacuzzi is an 11-year-old gelding by Marcuzzi. It is the horses’s third win with Todd, who took over the ride in March from Italian rider Susanna Bordone.
Todd was also second on a novice horse, Landslide, in a class won by Mary King with Kings Choice, who finished on their dressage score of 28.0. Todd and Landslide were close behind, with 29.5. Landslide is a seven-year-old by Landade.
Ireland’s Sarah Ennis claimed victory in the three-star Dodson & Horrell Challenge at Chatsworth, also riding an Irish Sport Horse, Stellor Rebound.
Holding fifth place after the dressage phase, Ennis climbed the rankings after show jumping and cross-country to finish first of a 60-strong field on the ten year-old bay gelding.
Ireland’s Eventing High Performance Manager Nick Turner said after the Irish victory: “Sarah was up against a very strong field, but her performances in all three phases was top class, and Stellor Rebound is certainly a very exciting horse for the future.”
