AES tops Vilamoura final

The British horses and riders bring home the top two spots at the final for five-year-olds yesterday at the final week of the Comporta Tour. Nicole Pavitt won on Sandra Pavitt’s Gemmarco, a son of the lovely AES stallion Unbelievable Darco (photo). Benjamin Bick of the Billy Stud rode Warrior’s Gold, a son of AES approved stallion Warrior, to second place. The difference between one and two was less than half a second.
