Samuel Hutton wins the 3* Grand Prix at ICNN Drachten

Monday, 20 January 2014

Sam Hutton won the Grand Prix in Drachten on Heidi du Ruisseau.In front of packed stands a blistering battle took place at ICNN Drachten on Sunday afternoon as fifteen riders made it through to the jump-off in the Grand Prix. The winner was the last rider on the start list, the 24 year old Brit Samuel Hutton, stable jockey at Jan Tops' yard in Valkenswaard. The show has attracted top riders to it, and yesterday's Grand Prix had some of the world's best fighting for the top prize of almost 20.000 Euro over Louis Konickx's 1.55m track.

Gregory Wathelet took an early lead on Papillon Z (Perhaps x Cassini I) tightning the turns everywhere to finish on 29.51 seconds. The always fast Italian Emauele Gaudiano on Admara (Padinus x Murano) chased Wathelet's time, but slotted into second at 29.81 - just fractions behind the Belgian rider.

As last rider Samuel Hutton came in on Heidi du Ruisseau (Heartbreaker x Darco), and secured the win being almost a second faster than Wathelet . "She always gives 110 % She loves her job," Samuel Hutton said of his mare after their first Grand Prix win together.
