SHOW JUMPING: Allen fourth in Rolex Grand Slam
on 11 March 2018
Wexford's Bertram Allen (22) finishes fourth in Rolex Grand Slam at Dutch Masters

WEXFORD's Bertram Allen and Gin Chin van het Lindenhof scored an excellent fourth place finish in today’s lucrative five-star Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping at the Dutch Masters in s-Hertogenbosch.

Allen netted €80,000 for his top five finish.

Allen and the 12-year-old gelding who is owned by Ballywalter Bloodstock, were one of 13 combinations who made it into the second round and they briefly held the lead in the jump-off when posting a clear in 38.74.

Germany’s Marcus Ehning looked to have done enough to take victory when he posted a clear in 37.80 with Cornado NRW.

However he missed out on the top prize of €264,000 when last to go Belgium’s Niels Bruynseels crossed the line clear in 37.10 with Gancia de Muze. Dutch favourite Harrie Smolders took third place on the podium with Emerald in a time of 37.89.
