THE 1.35m section of the Mervue Equine Leinster Tour came to an exciting close at the Irish Breeders’ Classic last Saturday when Eddie Moloney and Cruicerath Flexianna landed the title and with it, the top prize of €2,000.

Owned by TSI Equestrian, the nine-year-old mare is by Flexible out of the Holland-sired Pannamarenca. The combination had claimed two wins in the series – one in Coilog and one in Mullingar, as well as third place in Tattersalls.
