MUCH like the Grand Prix result later in the afternoon, Sunday morning’s Munster Agricultural Society 1.20m saw a talented young rider earn the top-two slots when Limerick’s Robyn Moran took first and second place.
Riding Fortside Farm’s seven-year-old Fortside Trend (Future Trend – Landino), Moran proved best of the 11 second round clears to secure the win.
She also guided her second mount, the Gina Heaps-owned and bred Carrowgar Cool Heart (Sibon (KWPN) - Coolcorran Cool Diamond) to a clear in 31.84.
This impressive result also meant that Moran collected the €400 bonus prize on offer to the highest placed rider in both Saturday’s 1.20m, which she and Fortside Trend won, and this class.
Edward Widger’s seven-year-old Crossroads Quality Chip (O.B.O.S. Quality 004 – Crossroads Miss Chip) was ridden into third place by Edward Doyle in 34.51.
Fourth place went to Kilmountain Saphira (KMS Chicago - Womanizer) and Tony O’Donohoe in 34.77.
Francis Connors, riding Richie O’Hara’s Kannan-sired seven-year-old Kilbunny Vixen, slotted into fifth, while Edward Doyle and his own six-year-old Evolve Gold Label (Capri Van Ovaries - ESI Balou) took sixth.
