Raymont wins in Sidney - Kermond the Australian League winner

Wednesday, 14 December 2011

Billy Raymont and Ocean Beach after their win. Photo by Franz Venhaus.Billy Raymont riding Ocean Beach NZPH took out the prestigious World Cup qualifier at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre on Sunday. 24 competitors faced up to Venezuelan International course builder Leopoldo Palacios challenging track. Raymont secured the win by posting a clear in the second round - the only clear round of the competition.


Tom McDermott was second riding SL Limerick. After posting the best first round score with only one rail down, McDermott was in the pole position coming into the second round. Unfortunately, two rails hit the floor and he finished the two rounds on 13 penalties to Raymont’s 9 faults. McDermott just missed out on taking the hat-trick after showing his talent by winning the junior and young rider finals earlier in the day.  Third place in the Grand Prix was taken by Queenslander Cathy Graham riding the careful Da Vinci's Pride also finishing on 13 penalties but with a slower time.


The 2011 World Cup - Australian League winner was Jamie Kermond - who was so far ahead on points he did not need to compete in the final competition on the weekend. Jamie will head overseas in January, firstly to the USA and then Europe,  in his bid for the London Olympic Games.
