WATCH: Edwina Tops-Alexander’s Winning Round in World Cup Qualifier in La Coruña

Australian wonderwoman, Edwina Tops-Alexander (43), scorched to victory with the lovely mare California in today’s seventh leg of the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping 2017/2018 Western European League at La Coruña, Spain. In an eight-rider, eight-nation jump-off against the clock the three-time Olympian simply out-raced all the others who managed to leave Santiago Varela’s track intact, and today’s result leaves her within a few points of qualification for the Longines Final in Paris, France next April.

Tops-Alexander was filled with her trademark determination today. “California has been jumping great, but here and there we kept having stupid faults and I was getting a bit mad! I was determined to have a good class here yesterday, but it didn’t work. Today I did my best and it DID work, so now I’m really happy!” she said.
