After an excellent win on Wednesday in the 1.50m two-phase with Picolo, Ireland’s Darragh Kenny maintained the high standard in the Mercedes-Benz Nations Cup at Aachen on Thursday night in front of a capacity crowd of 40,000.

This time riding Imothep, Kenny recorded four faults in the opening round and a single time fault in the second round. However the Irish team performance was patchy and the team finished in seventh place out of eight competing nations.
