SHOW JUMPING: Daniel Coyle fourth in $384,000 Grand Prix at Tryon
on 20 October 2019
Daniel Coyle and Farrel finished fourth in the five-star competition, with Co Clare's David Blake seventh on Keoki

IRISH riders featured strongly in Saturday night’s $384,000 five-star Grand Prix at Tryon in the USA, which was brought forward five hours due to impending heavy rain at the North Carolina venue.

Twelve of the 45 starters made it into the jump-off, with three Irish riders among those who managed to jump clear in the opening round.

Derry’s Daniel Coyle secured a fourth-place finish with Farrel, when he stopped the clock clear in 35.26 seconds. That left him just ahead of Kerry-born Capt Brian Cournane in fifth with Armik (35.33).

Co Clare’s David Blake finished seventh with Keoki after another clear round in 36.66.

The winner's prize went to McLain Ward (USA) with Noche De Ronda (32.83) ahead of Eugenio Garza Perez (MEX) in second with Armani SL Z (32.99), while Kristen Vanderveen (USA) and Bull Run’s Risen took third place on the podium (33.68).

On Friday at the same venue, Wexford’s Bertram Allen and Lafayette Van Overis claimed victory in the 1m45 Speed Stake to take the top prize of over €10,000.
