Billy Onslow runner-up in Derby of Eindhoven

William Funnell is ready for Hickstead Derby, end of this month. At Eindhoven in Holland he rode Billy Onslow, an eight-year-old son of his own AES bred GP stallion Billy Congo to second place. He and the much younger fellow country woman Jessica Mendoza were the only ones jumping clear over all the natural fences. In the jump-off both made one mistake. Mendoza went around 2,4 seconds faster and won aboard Ramiro de Belle Vue (Mozart des Hayettes). She can drive home the mini car. Funnell got the 9.000 euro for the second placed rider. CSI3* Eindhoven was back on the calendar in 2014 after a break of several years.
