Ireland’s Cameron Haney was in excellent form in Cannes, France, taking a win and a third place finish in two competitions at the five-star Global Champions Tour.
The Mayo man’s results came aboard the 10-year-old mare Eis Isaura (Tinka’s Boy x Darco), previously ridden by Ireland’s Paul Kennedy and Dave Quigley.
In the Prix Hotel Martinez 1m45, Hanley and Eis Isaura were drawn sixth-last to jump of the 31 starters and posted what proved the winning clear round in 61.18 seconds. Tipperary’s Denis Lynch also finished in the prizes, taking fourth place with Fairview Aliquidam.
In the later 1m50 jump-off class, Hanley and Eis Isaura were among 14 who made it through to the jump-off where a clear in 36.21 seconds saw them finish in third place. Victory went to Belgium’s Pieter Devos with Apart in 35.26 seconds.
