Trevor Breen crowned the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Champion 2018

Trevor Breen completed an impressive Horse of the Year Show double when he won the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet Grade C Championship on Saturday. It was a tense jump-off but he did it aboard Diamants Aurora, an eight-year-old grey mare owned by Tracy Priest that he had never even sat on until a day before the show started this week.


Trevor maintained his remarkable unbeaten record in the Talent Seekers, incorporating the seven-year-old Championship on Wednesday, having taken the ride due to its owner and regular rider being away in Barcelona.


It was Buckinghamshire-based Trevor’s fourth win from four attempts in the Talent Seekers class, and he also came up trumps in the Grade C Championship, clocking a time of 35.60 seconds to take a 10 horse jump-off. He had a winning margin of almost half a second from Danielle Farnsworth and Inglenook Eline, with Benjamin Clark and LCC Comanche taking third, just ahead of Lance Whitehouse and Bazento.


“I must say that the horse jumps fantastically and makes my life very easy,” Trevor said. “Tracy Priest, her owner and normal rider, is away this week and I have been lucky enough to get the ride. She has done a great job producing her, which makes it a very easy horse to ride.


“She was over the moon when we won the other day. She said before we came here that maybe the Talent Seekers would be about me getting to know the horse a little bit, and then have a good chance of winning on Saturday. So when I won the other day, she was like ‘I can’t believe you won it’ – and now she has gone and done it again. The mare is such a fighter in the ring; she loves the crowd and atmosphere, and I think she wants to win as much as I do. She just makes my life very easy because she is so careful.”
