Limerick’s Paul Kennedy and the 12 year-old Irish Sport Horse mare Cartown Danger Mouse have taken victory in Sunday’s four-star 1m60 Grand Prix at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show in England.
An exciting jump-off saw Kennedy outpace his fellow Irishman, Cork’s Billy Twomey, with the Shropshire-based 24-year-old Limerick rider collecting a first prize of €33,000.
Twomey had taken the lead with Kimba Flamenco with a clear round in 38.65 seconds before Kennedy knocked .09 of a second off that target when last to go.
Twomey finished as runner-up with Britain’s John Whitaker taking third place with Cassinis Chaplin.
Ireland’s Richard Howley and Dolores came home in sixth while Clem McMahon with Pacato also finished inside the top 10.
The victory was Kennedy’s second win at Bolesworth this weekend having taken the top prize in Friday’s feature competition again riding Cartown Danger Mouse.
