Jayne Doherty wins Cork events

Armagh rider Jayne Doherty took home the winner's trophies from both the three and two-star events at Ballindenisk, County Cork on Sunday.

The 36-year-old had a decisive victory in the three-star section with the Irish-bred The Only One, a comfortable 16.5 points ahead of Army challenger Capt Brian Curran Cournane, with another Irish-bred, Dunran Castle.

In the two-star, Doherty rode the thoroughbred Ravenstar into first place, the only horse finishing in the top three of any of the
sections at Ballindenisk that was not an Irish Sport Horse. Second in the two-star was Steven Smith with Whoa Nelly.

Fergal Nesbitt took first in Section One of the one-star event with
Flora Belle, while Section Two went to Trevor Smith with Rose of
Delvin.
