Photo by the Hampton Classic.With a scorching round on Gatsby in the $15,000 Merrill Lynch Speed Derby, Darragh Kenny padded his lead in the $30,000 Longines Rider Challenge, the bonus that goes to the rider who earns the most open jumper points during the Hampton Classic.

 

Gatsby's time of 71.765 seconds created a gap of more than 1 second between him and KM What Ever RV (Jeffery Welles/72.664) and Fineman (Shane Sweetnam/72.997). Kenny stands atop the Longines Rider Challenge with 208 points, ahead of fellow Irishmen Richie Moloney (155) and Sweetnam (140). Welles stands fourth with 115 points.

E-mail Print PDF

WilliMellingerThe 61-year-old Willi Melliger lives with his wife and three children in the Swiss Neuendorf. The legendary show jumper Calvaro is inextricably linked to this former Olympic rider. In 1996 the combination won individual silver during the Olympic Games in Atlanta. But it did not stop there; during the Games in Sydney in 2000 Switzerland won team gold. As if that is not enough, Willi and Calvaro also won four medals at the World Championships. The success even resulted in a book starring Calvaro entitled: 'White Myth'.

 

Willi Melliger: "I have known the Hendrix family for a very long time. We have frequently worked together over the past years. Not just because The Netherlands has acquired a good position in international equestrianism, but also due to the great amount of knowledge the Dutch horsemen and women have. The Hendrix family is a perfect example of this."
