King of speed
Guy Williams was confident from start to finish that he was going to win the Bunn Leisure Speed Derby on Casper De Muze. He has only had the 12-year-old since Christmas, but quickly formed a successful partnership winning eight out of nine classes on the Sunshine Tour. Guy said: “I had a feeling he was going to win. The aim has always been the Speed Derby and I had to keep the brake on yesterday. My main worry was Belinka, who was last to go, as I used to ride her (she is now ridden by Richard Howley) and I know she is fast.”
The All England Jumping Course and new sponsor Equestrian.com have teamed up to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to a member of the Hickstead Derby Community, to enable them to be part of this special event.
