Cross Country day at the Australian International 3 day event is over

The day was run under almost ideal conditions, with only some light rain a
couple of times to settle the dust. Apart from that it was fairly cool and
overcast, great for a run in the park. Photos from the 4 star are now
published at the rest will follow shortly.

After the day in the CCI 4 star Shane Rose on Taurus moved up to the lead on
45.5 penalties, followed by Sonja Johnson on Parkiarrup Illicit Liaison.
That combination made a big move from 11th to 2nd place. The two leaders
were the only ones that were able to put in clear rounds on the Cross
country for the 4 star, with 9 combinations either retiring or being
eliminated on course.

In the CCI 2 star Shane Rose again retained his first place on Virgil. 2nd
place so far is Kevin McNab on Kelecyn Cognac with Sonja Johnson on Belfast
Mojito close behind in third place, with less than 5 point between the top 4

In the CIC 2 star Christine Bates on Delago is in first place, having a nice
15 point buffer from Ali Foye on GP Leica Luvid.

Now everything is depending on the Showjumping on Sunday, to be held in
front of the Heritage grandstand in Victoria Park in Adelaide.
