May 11 ~ Tricia Hirst made it an incredible third win in the CEI*** 160km class at Dukeries on Saturday 27th May 2011. Not only was it her third win, but each win has been with a different horse. In 2005 Tricia won this ride with Vlacq Khamul and followed this up in 2008 with that exciting racing finish beating the Bahrani riders with Vlacq Abattarik. 2011 saw her win again with the big grey Madjin des Pins from Beccy Broughton-Booker and Java Sunlight.
