Breen and Allen on form in Germany
22 Nov 2014 10:10
Irish show jumping duo Shane Breen and Bertram Allen kept up an almost relentless pressure at the five-star World Cup show in Stuttgart, Germany on Friday, once again scoring top five places against formidable opposition. Tipperary-born Breen, who opened the show with a win on Thursday aboard Wembley Farms Inc's Calido Boy, claimed a third place on Friday on the same horse. He then added a fourth later in the afternoon on the chestnut stallion Golden Hawk when competing in the big 1m50 competition. Nineteen-year-old Bertram Allen, who won his debut World Cup class at Verona in Italy last week, had a third in the speed class at Stuttgart with Belmonde on Thursday night. He followed that with a fifth in Friday night’s German Masters, which was won by local hero Ludger Beerbaum, who collected a Mercedes GLK 350 as his prize. Allen and Breen are joined at the German show by Cameron Hanley and Jonathan Gordon, and all will be hoping for favourable starting places in Sunday afternoon's €150,000 Longines FEI World Cup competition. At Neeroeteren in Belgium, meanwhile, Bertram Allen's 13-year-old brother Harry maintained family form with a win in the opening international pony class with the Irish-bred Attyrory Clover Lilly.
