GB's William Fox-Pitt wins second Badminton Horse Trials title

Great Britain's William Fox-Pitt secures his second Badminton Horse Trials on board Chilli Morning.

Great Britain's William Fox-Pitt claimed his second Badminton Horse Trials title at the weekend on board Chilli Morning.

The 46-year-old, who took the crown in 2004, became the first British Badminton winner since Oliver Townend in 2009.

"It's amazing to win here. It's been a long wait," BBC Sport quotes Fox-Pitt as saying. "I'm old now and it might never happen again. I've got no excuse because the horse is great and I didn't want to waste it."

Ingrid Klimke of Germany finished second on Hale Bob, while New Zealand's Jonathan Paget sealed third place on Clifton Rush.
