‘Identical’ twin event horses both win on the same day

Two identical twin horses each won a BE100 section at Rackham Horse Trials – with a fifth of a penalty between their scores.

Sacha Hourigan rode Caroline Richardson’s Twice As Nice IV (Ernie, pictured above) and Double Act IV (Eric, below) to victory on 16 June, finishing on her dressage scores of 28.8 and 29 respectively.

The twins are by Zenturio and out of Mrs Richardson’s mare Hyanie d’Aubrie, who was first scanned as not in foal, then confirmed as pregnant but one of the embryos was “hiding” behind a cyst.
