Cross-Country made a big impact on the World Equestrian Games eventing standings leaving the Brits in the lead with the Americans breathing down their necks. Famous British eventer Mary King bebopped around the WEG course showing herself to be the veteran she is leaving herself and Imperial Cavalier in 10th.
But they weren’t the only hot shot veteran who tore up cross-country. Phillip Dutton, even after being held in warm up while the vets attended Italy’s Iman du Golfe for injuries, took the course by storm. Spectators put bets on whether or not he and Woodburn would take the direct route which was rare for this brush combination. As you can see, money changes hands.
As you might imagine the crowd went wild and Phillip and Woodburn moved into 14th.
