SHOW JUMPING: Kenny off to winning start at WEF
on 15 January 2019
Offaly's Darragh Kenny and Billy Dorito won the $6,000 Bainbridge 1.40m Speed Challenge at the first week of the Winter Equestrian Festival in Florida

OFFALY's Darragh Kenny and Billy Dorito won the $6,000 Bainbridge 1.40m Speed Challenge at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida, USA.

Kenny and Billy Dorito bested a field of 68 entries to win the class by a margin of more than three seconds last Friday during the first week of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC).

Kenny and Billy Dorito were the seventh entry to contest the Eric Hasbrouck-designed track, stopping the clock in a quick and clear 71.221 seconds.

While 21 entries would jump clear throughout the class, none would catch the early time to beat set by Kenny and the nine-year-old bay Anglo European Studbook gelding (Billy Mexico x Vechta), owned by Vlock Show Stables LLC.

WEF continues with 12 consecutive weeks of world-class competition through March 31, 2019.
