McVean and Daffodil pull of the Three-peat

7:21 am on 19 March 2012

Aboard Dunstan Daffodil, Katie McVean won her fourth Olympic Cup at the 2012 New Zealand Horse of the Year Show in Hastings yesterday - the third consecutive showjumper of the year title for the 25-year-old from Mystery Creek.

The feat topped off a superb show, which also saw her win the Lady Rider of the Year, the Silver Fern Stakes and the five and seven-year-old titles.

But the Olympian was quick to credit Daffodil with yesterday's heart-stopping victory which saw her sweep aside 24 other top combinations from both sides of the Tasman.
