O'Connor takes 1st place at Arnheim
04 Jul 2015 20:08
Ireand's Cian O’Connor collected just over €6,000 for a first place in the Longines-ranked jump-off class at Arnhem in the Netherlands today, riding the bay mare Quidam’s Cherie. A large 17-horse jump off saw the Meath-based rider deliver a determined fault-free round that stopped the clock at 37.93 seconds, a time that shaved three-tenths of a second off that of the previous leader, Netherlands competitor Stefanie van den Brink with the mare Baronescha. Subsequent combinations were unable to catch O’Connor, who took the trophy in the three-star competition, beating 60 other riders. Irish army rider Captain Michael Kelly also achieved a top-ten place, finishing in ninth with four faults in the jump-off on Drumiller Lough.
