‘I’M HOPING I’VE SET A RECORD’
RORY GILSENAN took the HOYS ticket in a strong working hunter section on the heavyweight winner, Fiona Spencer’s Bay Gabriel (above). This was the first time Rory had competed the gelding.
“He’s a proper horse. Fiona’s husband field masters with the Pytchley and hunts him in winter, but he’s also so careful that he could make a 1.40m showjumper,” assessed
Rory, who was qualifying his fifth worker for HOYS.
“I still have two more to go, but I’m hoping I’ve already set a record,” he added.
