Vilamoura Week 3

Posted on November 16, 2021

Onto week 3 out in Vilamoura for the Breen Team, with Shane joining Jack and Georgia.

Again, international competition kicked off with the young horses in the 6YOs. Day 1 saw Georgia place 11th on Keyton and Jack 9th on Koh-I-Noor. Then things ramped up a level on Wednesday with Jack taking the win on Tracey Forrest and Julia Morris’s Koh-I-Noor – a great result for this up-and-coming young horse.

Thursday saw Shane and Kbs Major Player finish 7th in the CSI4* two phase 1.40m. Georgia and her family-owned Donavaya kicked off their weekly campaign with 9th place in the same class. Jack also picked up a 9th place position in the 1.45/1.50 on Breen Equestrian and Michael Quirke’s co-owned Cuick Star Kervec with Shane just behind him in 11th on Lady Star Van Dorperheide.

Saturday’s results came from Evita, owned by Old Lodge, who cruised to 4th place in the 1.35 with Georgia.

Then onto the final days jumping of the week for the team and some top results came in. Georgia and Donavaya kept their clean sheet of jumping for the week, with an impressive 3rd place in the 1.40 jump of class. Jack and his mother’s Bbs McGregor put in a brilliant performance in the Grand Prix, only to heartbreakingly have the very last fence down in the jump off to keep them off top spot. However, they still finished 4th with their two strong rounds of jumping.

Now onto the closing week of this year’s 2021 Vilamoura Champions Tour and the team are looking forward to a busy week making it count.
