Denis Lynch second at Longines
13 Dec 2014 23:11
Ireland's Denis Lynch and All Star 5 took second place and a €100,000 prize after a thrilling 12-horse jump off at Longines Grand Prix in La Coruna, Spain. The first-round speed of Thomas Straumann's bay stallion gave the Tipperary rider the advantage of being last to go in the jump-off, but despite their best efforts the duo failed to catch Netherlands leader Leopold van Asten and VDL Groep Zidane, who had stopped the clock at 47.27 seconds, just under two seconds faster than Lynch. Van Asten collected €165,000 for his win, and, like Lynch, will now add valuable points to his December total in the Longines FEI World Jumping Rankings.
Lynch currently holds 22nd place in the table, with Asten at 101st. Ireland's other competitor tonight, fellow Tipperary rider Shane Breen with Golden Hawk, had two fences down in the first round and didn't qualify for the jump-off.
