Badminton XC Results

I've been lucky to get live radio from Badminton on a friend's iPod :)  For my Canadians, Selena O'Hanlon and Stephanie Rhodes-Bosh will go in about an hour.  Hawley Bennet-Awad just finished, with 1 refusal at a skinny.  They didn't say which.  She (Hawley) did overtake someone on course.  Not sure how that happens, but apparently it can.  I just finished listening to her interview at the end of the course, and am writing this because the announcers left to have ice cream :P
Update: Selena O'Hanlon and Colombo are clear through the Shotgun hollow!  Go Selena!  I also found out where Hawley messed up.  She had a refusal at the caner reaserch hillside. Selena O'Hanlon clear through vickerage hillside... took a long way.  Pick it up Selena, you've gotta do well for me ;) 

Selena has just had two refusals.  Oh well.  Her refusal was at the first picture, and Hawleys was at the second.  However, Selena's going home strong despite the extra 60 penalties (since both were at the same fence)

Update 2:
Wow, note to self: if you want someone to win, don't cheer for them.  Out of my riders, Steph didn't finish and Selena did, but with two refusals.  The horse I was rooting for, Gin and Juice, had one refusal.  Pippa never made it to XC, and Karen & Mandiba didn't finish.
