John Whitaker (GBR) & Leen O.L. won The Father Christmas Stakes CSI 5* yesterday at Olympia – The London International Horse Show CSI 5*-W in England. The British living legend of our sport and the 9-year-old bay Zangersheide mare (Berlin x Kannan) took a definite lead of the 1.45m accumulator-with-joker contest with a total of 65 points in 42.27 seconds.
To the delight of the home crowd William Funnell (GBR) & Billy Angelo (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Kroongraaf) gave the Brits a 1-2 finish with the same scores as the eventual winners, just three-tenths of a second slower.
