Allen off to a flyer in Normandy
02 Sep 2014 21:09
Ireland’s Bertram Allen claimed top spot in the opening speed competition of the World Equestrian Games in Normandy.
-
The Dublin Grand Prix winner went clear aboard 10-year-old grey mare Molly Malone in 77.01 seconds.
-
"It was a good solid round,” said Allen. "I didn’t quite expect to be that fast and I’m surprised to be in the lead. I didn't go all out to risk it and this will be a time to be beaten."
-
There were also clear rounds for the other three members of the Irish team, Darragh Kenny, Cameron Hanley and Denis Lynch, and they sit seventh overall.
-
Points gained on Tuesday will aid both team and individual scores for Ireland.
-
The top five teams at the end of the games qualify for a place at the Rio Olympics.
