“This one was for him,” a teary eyed Thieriot Stutes said proudly after clinching the  Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* win at Galway Downs with The Chatwin Group’s Chatwin. She was speaking of Eric Bradenburg, one of the members of The Chatwin Group who unexpectedly passed away this week.

Ian Stark and the phrase “rider frightener” have become synonymous in the eventing world. His big, bold tracks typically garner wide eyes and nervous stares from competitors, and this CIC3* track for the Adequan USEA Gold Cup competitors is no different. Stark’s course is certainly challenging, with big questions throughout, but if past experiences here give a glimpse of today’s results, the track will reward bold, forward riding.
