Irish Horses Doing Well

Punchestown CCIO*** 2002
Many of the King of Diamond's Line do very well.

Despite the inclement weather a good competition took place with Irish Sport Horses making up a large part of the international field present. The winning horse was the Irish bred Bally Leck Boy by Robertstown Boy, who led from start to finish ridden by Australian Lucinda Fredericks.

Highest placed of the Irish was Kilnadeema Star (ISH) ridden by Jane OFlynn (IRL). Having picked up 54.2 penalties with their dressage test the pair were lying 14th after the first day. A clear Cross Country run moved them up to 5th place after day two.
