Liam Moakes 10th Aug, 2020

FOUR-YEAR-OLD Upton’s Quickess (Centino x Quick Star), owned by Marcine Marshall, won the National four-year-old Championship thanks to a brilliant ride by Warwickshire’s Jessica Botham.

In a Style and Performance class, top international riders Angelie von Essen and Billy Twomey also awarded points to each of the horses which came forward for their performance, rideability and technique.

It was Upton’s Quickess that shone as a star of the future to take the title, finishing ahead of La Promesse (Fly x Tangelo vd Zuuthoeve) – a brown mare owned by rider Danielle Ryder.

Third place went to the stallion Q-Pleasure van Seven Oaks (For Pleasure) owned by Sandra Pavitt and ridden by daughter Nicole.
