Lynch claims victory in Frankfurt three-star show

Germany-based Tipperary rider Denis Lynch claimed just under €6,000 for this evening's victory in the Winning Round competition at the three-star show in Frankfurt.

Lynch, aboard the Quick Star gelding Quintos 81, stopped the clock a seventh of a second ahead of his nearest challenger, Netherlands rider Gert-Jan Bruggink and the mare Andrea 48.

Meanwhile, at the two-star show in Rosendaal in the Netherlands, another Quick Star offspring, the gelding Otello Star, gave Ireland's 20 year-old Conor Drain two victories over the weekend, with the nine-year-old Pour le Poussage also producing a fifth place for the Antrim rider in Friday night's big jump-off class.
