Swail Takes Third In Modena Grand Prix

Ireland's Conor Swail topped off an impressive outing at the three-star Modena event this weekend (May 1-3) with a Third Place in the Grand Prix tonight (Saturday).

With one win, two Thirds and an Eighth already to his credit, the Malahide-based rider brought out his 2002 Zuidlaren winner, Windgates King Koal, for the final competition of the evening, and the 15 yr old Edward Cawley-owned gelding, in his first 2003 outing, knocked just one fence to bring Swail into Third.

After the Grand Prix, Swail said: < I was delighted to have had such a good weekend on such good horses. My short-term aim now is to be selected to jump for Ireland in Rome later this month.>
