Riding Avalon Sunset B, an 11 year-old Irish bred gelding owned by Anne Bondi, Holly set the pace with an unbeatable double clear in 46.82 seconds to take the win. She then went on to claim second place with another solid clear round this time riding Dean Vernon’s 8 Year-old British bred bay mare, Billy Sarafina.
