Nicholson slips further off lead
Sun, 14 Oct 2012 2:34p.m.
New Zealand's Andrew Nicholson and Quimbo picked up 2.4 cross-country time faults to fall further behind Olympic champion Michael Jung at the Boekelo CCI three-star competition in the Netherlands overnight (NZT).
Jung led the field after a stunning dressage performance on Halunke FBW, backing that up with a faultless cross-country effort to further extend his lead.
Nicholson, recent winner of the Burghley horse trials, trailed Jung by 4.4 penalties going into the second day but his 10min 36sec cross-country added 2.40 time faults to leave him on 38.80 to Jung's 32.00.
German rider Dirk Schrade and Edino have moved up the rankings into third on 41.0.
New Zealander Tim Price, seventh on Wesko after the dressage, was eliminated on the cross-country but Jesse Campbell (Kaapachino) catapulted from 27th into seventh after riding clear in 10:26.
Mark Todd has two mounts: Leonidas II lies 23rd on 53.20 and Quantum Leap is three places further back with 53.60.
