Lennon, Corless, Higgins, O’Meara and Penfold win at Jumping in the City
on 27 June 2015
Former world champion Dermott Lennon saw off all challengers to win the Grand Prix, while the Puissance reached a dramatic conclusion

A CAPACITY crowd at Shelbourne Park, Dublin saw five winners in the three feature competitions at the Underwriting Exchange Limited Jumping In The City Final last night.

Joanna Penfold from Co Tipperary, riding the grey Irish Sport Horse King Cruise opened the action with a win in the Amateur Speed Class, outpacing runner-up Paul Carroll and Castleroche La Roche (ISH) by just over a second to secure the class sponsors’ first prize of a West Wood Ifor Williams 506 Horsebox.

In the The Underwriting Exchange Grand Prix, former World Champion show jumper Dermott Lennon was a popular winner on his long-term partner, Judith Sossick’s talented Irish Sport Horse mare Loughview Lou Lou.

The Co Down rider picked up €5,600 in prize money after a seven horse jump-off which saw him outpace Kildare challenger Alexander Butler and Vimminka by three fifths of a second.

In the Devenish Puissance competition that rounded off proceedings as the sun set at Shelbourne Park, three combinations shared first prize in the €6,000 competition when they cleared the wall at a height of 2.06m (6ft 7 inches).

Tipperary’s Liam O’Meara with the Irish Sport Horse Cisero, Galway’s Gabriel Corless on another Irish Sport Horse, Dollanstown, and Wexford’s Jason Higgins aboard Hadine Van’t Zorgvliet were the joint winners.

Shelbourne Park marked the final leg of the 2015 The Underwriting Exchange Jumping In The City series, which has also seen huge crowds attend at greyhound stadia in both Limerick and Cork earlier this month.
