When Isabel O Loughlin
rode through the cross-
country finish flags at the
event in Adelaide last
weekend the 16-year-old
achieved what many older,
more experienced riders
It was only O Loughlin s
third CIC two-star event and
riders agreed the course
was one of the toughest
they d seen in a while. Six
horse and rider combina-
tions didn t finish.
"It was really difficult.
Every second fence was a
combination and the specta-
tors made it really hard to
focus," O Loughlin said.
O Loughlin s ride for
the competition was
warmblood Saddle Up
Valentine. Originally from
Victoria, the horse has
as little experience at the
international level as his
"He s done one-star,
he was doing that when I
bought him. But he s only
done the two-star competi-
tions with me," she said.
The pair had a hard
season preparing for the
Adelaide event. Under the
watchful eye of coach and
Olympic silver medallist
Megan Jones they travelled
to NSW and Victoria trying
to gather enough points for
O Loughlin is looking
at the long term. She
is training hard with
Megan Jones and hopes to
improve on her Adelaide
performance which, after
her strong cross-country
performance, ended with an
unfortunate elimination in
the showjumping phase.
Her plans involve buying
more horses, riding in more
competitions and less time
spent at school.
"I m so determined
good rider. I d love to do it
professionally," she said.
Getting there will
undoubtedly be a challenge,
but having the Australian
event on her doorstep will
Classic Adelaide is pleased with
the almost 180 entrants in this
year s tarmac rally, despite the
number being down on last year s 220.
Media spokesman for the event,
Chris Nixon, said the financial climate
was the reason behind the lower
"Look, they are lower than last year,
but with the current financial climate
we think the number of entrants is
pretty good," he said.
"The event has a strong history
and it s pretty unique in that we have
international drivers telling us there s
nowhere else on earth they can drive
their cars like they do here in South
Australia. Nice roads, challenging
roads and beautiful scenery."
The cars and crew include repre-
sentatives from Britain, the United
States, Spain, New Zealand and Italy,
who have brought some modern-day
rally machines, as well as some of the
world s most desirable and expensive
English motoring enthusiast Sir
Paul Vestey and his historian and
author co-driver Doug Nye will be the
envy of most of the country s male
population, riding in a 1959 Ferrari
California Spider. So rare is this
vehicle that a similar model sold for a
world record $11.3 million last year.
Equally beautiful is the 1956
Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing coupe
that Pat Matthews and partner Patti
Paulson will drive.
"I ve been wating to do Classic
Adelaide for years and having retired
about a year ago we have finally been
able to come," said the Californian
Matthews, who has another 24 classic
cars at home.
South Australia s Steve Glenney
took out the prologue competition on
Wednesday, in his 500 horsepower V8
Holden Commodore, completing the
3.8km run to Eagle on the Hill in just
over two minutes.
"We had a good run, especially as
the car was only finished this morn-
ing, but it s early days," he said on
modern cars, that s all to the good."
