Jumping - Kerrygold Grand Prix League - Army Win At Mullingar
THIRD OF the Bank Holiday Kerrygold Grands Prix took place at Mullingar
today (Monday), and produced its share of surprises.
course proved tricky for most competitors, and only four made it
through to the jump-off. Of these, Paul O'Shea, riding Julie Pratt's
<Who's Business As Usual>, suffered an elimination due to
a broken bridle halfway round the course, but this still earned
him a Fourth in the jump-off, and ahead of the first round four-faulters.
Lt. Shane Carey kept up the strong Army presence at the Grand Prix
League with <Shannondale>, taking the top slot with a double
clear and a time of 38.61, less than a second faster than runner-up
Neal Fearon on <Drumagoland Flight>. Delyth Collins, riding
<Creevagh Duca Diamond> was unlucky to have a single pole
down in the second round, slotting into Third.
the points gained at Mullingar consolidate Carey's No.3 spot on
the Kerrygold Grand Prix league table, bringing his total from 19
up to 29, now just one point shy of equalling Andrew Dunlop in No.2.
Clem McMahon still holds the No.1 league position, on 35 points.
