Paget after Grand Slam

2:39 pm on 9 September 2013

New Zealand's newest equestrian star Jock Paget says he hopes to chase the grand slam of eventing.

Paget won the Burghley horse trial on Monday morning on Clifton Promise to add to the Badminton title he won earlier this year.

Victory in the Kentucky event next year would result in a $400,000 bonus.

Only one rider, Britain's Pippa Funnell, has completed the grand slam in 2003.

Paget and Clifton Promise are the first combination in almost 25 years to win both Badminton and Burghley horse trials in the same year.
