Breen wins Italian four-star Grand Prix

IT was another great weekend on the international stage for Irish Show jumpers, who claimed two major Grand Prix wins in Italy and the Czech Republic.

Tipperary’s Shane Breen and ‘Team Z7 Ipswich’ scored a commanding win in the €96,000 four-star Grand Prix at Montefalco in Italy. Just five of the 50 starters made it through to the jump-off, with two of those representing Ireland.

A clear round against the clock in 31.93 seconds saw Breen and the Team Z7-owned ‘Ipswich’ finish almost two seconds ahead of Argentinian runner-up, Jose Maria Larocca with ‘Finn Lente’. Wexford’s Harry Allen was the other Irish rider to make it into the jump-off, where one fence down in 35.08 saw him finish finished fifth with ‘Guinness’.
