Glory for Allen at WC Grand Prix
10 Nov 2014 10:10
Irish rider Bertram Allen has won the Longines World Cup Grand Prix at Verona in Italy. Up against 35 of the world's best combinations, 19-year-old Allen and the ten-year-old mare Molly Malone V were one of ten through to the jump-off at the five-star show. Second-last to jump, in his first-ever appearance at an FEI World Cup show, Allen sensationally shaved three quarters of a second off the time of Dutch leader Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Verdi TN N.O.P. to win the €43,750 first prize and rack up his first 20 World Cup points. Wexford-born Allen said of his mare, owned by Ballywalter Farms: "She's fast and careful. This is a great horse and I'm very lucky to have her." Allen had a stellar career yielding multiple European medals at Pony and Junior level and is now ranked as one of the world's top 20 international senior riders. Meanwhile, Ireland's Denis Lynch took second place in the three-star Grand Prix in Munich with his new horse Quote Zavaan, just under two seconds off the pace of British winner John Whitaker and Argento.
