David Blake and Pine Hollow Farm’s ‘Binkie’ kicked off Tryon Spring 7 as they did last week, in fantastic form winning the $34,000 Suncast FEI Tryon Welcome at Tryon International Equestrian Centre. This was an FEI Ranking class at the 3* event.
Speaking afterwards, David said “We’ve only had him for about four months and he’s placed in every class so far since we’ve had him here and then he won today. This is also the first show we’ve really stepped him up at,” he said. “He’s just nine-years-old so I think he’s really a great horse and we’re very excited about him and his future.”
David will now aim ‘Binkie’ at the $127,000 Kingsland Equestrian Grand Prix on Saturday.
Best of luck this weekend!
