Well,  NZers woke up this morning to the most outstanding news .  Our amazing riders and horses are totally dominating the leaderboard at Burghley overnight . WAHOO  !!!
Jock Paget has excelled yet  again to be winning after XC  on "Clifton Promise"  and coming 2nd on "Clifton Lush". Both super talented NZ TB's . Congratulations to all connections of this wonderful Team.
 As well I am not sure if many people realise but BOTH Jock's  horses were initially produced here in NZ  by Danielle and Alex De Luca Oliviera, so that is pretty cool for them to see these horses rise to the top.!!!
Andrew Nicolson is in 3rd place on the stunning  "Avebury" .
William FP  on the NZ TB "Parklane Hawk" is 4th ( got couple of time faults XC  sadly otherwise would have been 2nd ) .  We sourced this horse for William and his great owner Catherine Witt so thrilling for us to see yet another great performance at 4* level  from this combination.
Andrew is 5th on "Nereo" and 8th on " Calico Joe ".
Fellow Olympian Jonelle Richards has risen to 6th place after her brilliant XC ride yesterday .
Ane the one and only Sir Mark Todd has risen from 18th to 10th on his recently new ride "Oloa".

Tomorrow another day of course with SJing and we will all be watching with baited breath . Can't wait !!!

Here is a run down of the XC on video and interesting  comments from the leading riders and course designer Captain Mark Phillips  -
