Billy Ray­mont and Anton jumped the only dou­ble clear round to claim the World Cup qual­i­fier at the Sale and Dis­trict Showjump­ing Club’s Elms Showjump­ing Cham­pi­onships at the weekend.

Five com­bi­na­tions jumped clear in the first round of the tech­ni­cal Gavin Ch­ester-de­signed track in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions and were in­vited for the sec­ond round, along with seven com­bi­na­tions on four faults. Clay Sim­monds, 18, rid­ing Oaks Cas­tanza in his first World Cup start, took the lead af­ter an ex­tremely fast sec­ond round. He looked the win­ner un­til Ray­mont jumped dou­ble clear to win, claim the $1000 dou­ble clear bonus and rel­e­gate Sim­monds to sec­ond place.

New Zealand rider Katie Lau­rie rode Cera Caruso to win the Mini Prix ahead of Aaron Har­low rid­ing Twins Eas­ton VDL.
