SHOW JUMPING: Five-star win for Kenny at Spruce Meadows
on 09 June 2019
Darragh Kenny was on board the 10-year-old gelding Romeo 88 and the pair produced the faster of two double clear rounds to land the top prize in Canada

OFFALY'S Darragh Kenny scored a commanding victory in Friday’s RBC Capital Markets Cup at Spruce Meadows five-star fixture in Canada, where he produced the faster of just two double clear rounds.

Kenny was riding the 10-year-old gelding Romeo 88, who is owned by Stone Hill Farm, and finished the jump-off clear in 44.33 seconds. That left him almost six seconds faster than the only other double clear round which came from Mexican rider Nicolas Pizzaro with Fabrice DN.

“The first round course was tough, there wasn’t so many clears but it was a good jump off my horse really felt on point. I’ve only had him (Romeo 88) for five months but I think the sky is the limit,”said Kenny.

The victory was Ireland’s second of the week so far at Spruce Meadows, coming on the back of a win for Derry’s Jordan Coyle on Wednesday. He guided Bold Prinz to the top prize in the Friends of the Meadows Cup 1m50, beating 74 competitors.
