Dublin Horse Show - Swail Wins Again

CONFIRMING that he is a force to be reckoned with, Conor Swail from Co. Down took another class at the Dublin Horse Show today (Thursday) following his win in the opening day's Speed Stakes.

Riding Barry O'Connor's <Double Diamond>, the Crossgar man took the Grade A competition in the late afternoon sunlight, fractions of a second ahead of Marion Hughes, riding Miguel Bravo's <Oh Jessie>.

Earlier in the day he had come second to Cian O'Connor in the hotly-contested international Speed Derby, riding Edward Cawley's <Windgate's Mystique>, but made sure of victory in the last class of the day, riding a foot-perfect double clear.
