TIPPERARY's Denis Lynch and the 13-year-old gelding Brooklyn Heights, owned by Molly Ohrstrom, finished in a share of second place in Sunday's five-star Longines FEI World Cup Grand Prix at Stuttgart in Germany.
The Stuttgart German Masters was hosting the fifth leg of the 2023/2023 Longines FEI World Cup in Western Europe and 13 of the 40 starters made it through to the jump-off. Drawn third-last to go, Lynch jumped clear again against the clock in exactly the same time (36.80) as Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat and Dynamix de Belheme to share second place.
Victory in Stuttgart went to Germany’s Richard Vogel and United Touch S with the fastest clear of 35.35 seconds. The result moves Denis Lynch up to 13th place on the league table ahead of the next round of action at Madrid in Spain on November 27th.
