SHANNON Mackenzie claimed her first outright victory of the Connolly’s Red Mills Spring Tour, triumphing at Portmore Equestrian Centre last Sunday with Bens Lady Lux.

Having narrowly missed out on the win in rounds at Cavan EC and Ravensdale Lodge, Mackenzie made the most of a strong hand in the jump-off, making a concentrated effort to claim and hold the top spot on this occasion.
