Funnell and Billy Congo win GP Lummen

William Funnell and his home bred Billy Congo (Vechta) have won the last GP of the Spring Tour in Lummen. Just like last week an AES stallion and a British rider win the final stakes. Last week Joe Clee took home the win for Great Britain aboard Utamaro d’Ecaussinnes. William Funnell won in front of the two Belgians Kim Thiry and Mike Van Olst. Catherine Van Roosbroeck placed ninth after one down in the jump-off on her AES born mare Calumet (Joyeux Ardent) after she grabbed already third place in the Ranking class on Friday.
