Lynch finishes 21st in opening World Cup Finals speed class
on 31 March 2017
Denis Lynch and All Star 5 lie in 21st after finishing round one with four faults

IRELAND's Denis Lynch and the stallion All Star 5 lie in 21st of 37 starters after the opening speed class at the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Finals in Omaha, Nebraska in the USA.

Lynch and the Thomas Struamann-owned 14-year-old All Star lowered one fence during their round to add four seconds to their time of 64.43, leaving them on a total of 68.43. Irish course designer Alan Wade saw 11 of the 37 starters jump clear at the 17,000-seater Century Link Center in Omaha, which is hosting the World Cup finals for the very first time.

American rider McLain Ward and HH Azur hold the lead after they jumped clear in 59.27, while Sweden’s Henrik von Eckermann is in second spot with Mary Lou. Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat, who is bidding for his third World Cup win in-a-row, is in third place with Bianca.

Four more rounds of jumping remain before the 2017 World Cup Jumping champion will be crowned on Sunday.
