SHOW JUMPING: Lynch wins Spanish Grand Prix
on 15 December 2019
Denis Lynch and Rubens LS La Silla won the Spanish Longines Grand Prix at La Coruña

TIPPERARY's Denis Lynch and Rubens LS La Silla claimed the winner's prize of over €75,000 in Saturday evening's five-star Longines Grand Prix at La Coruña in Spain.

Just four of the 36 starters made it into the jump-off, with Lynch posting what proved to be the winning clear round when second to go against the clock.

Dutchman Marc Houtzager would finish as runner-up with Sterrehof’s Dante, while Britain’s Robert Whitaker slotted into third place with Catwalk IV.

Lynch picked the ride on Rubens LS La Silla in late August after the 13-year-old HH Rebozo-sired stallion was bought by Onyx Consulting Ltd, the horse was previously ridden by Co Down’s Conor Swail.

A delighted Denis Lynch said: “I was lucky because my horse is not the fastest, but has a lot of experience. He was calm, he turned very well and I am very happy. ”

La Coruña will host the latest round of the Longines FEI World Cup series this afternoon (Sunday).
