Perfect prep for Allan Team at Hickstead next week

With Hickstead almost upon us and a contingent from the Allan Bloodlines Showjumping due to compete there, LOUGHNATOUSA DIAMOND and John Crippen tuned up perfectly by winning the 1.25 Open at Weston Lawns yesterday with a smooth jump-off performance.

LOUGHNATOUSA RAFA, a careful and immensely talented young horse now learning from Bernice Cuthbert to be more forward going, accomplished his mission by going double clear in the Foxhunter and finishing 3rd to boot.
