Graham Babes claims a Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier win at the Dumfries & Lockerbie Show

The Dumfries & Lockerbie Show in Dumfrieshire saw showjumpers gather to take part in the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier and it was Graham Babes who took the win alongside booking a place in the Championship at the Horse of the Year Show in October.

Ayrshire based Graham claimed top spot on board his own 6 year-old bay gelding, Glencoe after the initial starting field was whittled down to a determined ten horse jump-off. With three Horse of the Year Show tickets were on offer, Graham and Glencoe produced a speedy double clear to slip ahead of their competitors in a time of 44.12 seconds.

Declan Irvine from Lanarkshire put forward a clean performance riding Richard Duncan’s 9 year-old bay gelding. This combination took a slower line to leave all the fences standing for a double clear in 48.73 seconds.

The third and final Championship ticket went to Amanda Millin from Bolton, Lancashire. Amanda rode DJ, a 9 year-old chestnut gelding owned by Matthew Millin to the final double clear of the class in 52.06 seconds.
