FOR the second week in-a-row, Carlow’s Jason Foley won a two-star Grand Prix; this time in Ghent, Belgium, with the Irish Sport Horse Rockwell RC.

From 58 starters, just 10 combinations were clear in the first round of the 1.45m class. Five were clear against the clock when Foley posted the winning time of 34.40secs to claim €8,646 with the nine-year-old Kannan mare who, out of Urban Sea (Guidam), was bred by Ronan Byrne and is owned by Seán Cubitt of Bruntwood Stables. As a five-year-old, the mare won gold at the WBFSH World Breeding Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken with Foley.

The Netherlands’ Remco Been was runner-up with Bridgetown Z (0/0 34.77), ahead of Belgium’s Jens Vandenberk and Faldiano (0/0 35.01). Ireland’s Conor Drain finished eighth aboard Imagine after picking up four faults against the clock.

Foley landed two one-star wins at the venue with the nine-year-old mare Lady Angeles.
