Carey Takes Fourth In Grand Prix, Third In Leading Rider

Though they finished 3rd and 5th respectively in the Nations Cup outings, Ireland's squad at both Zagreb and Athens managed to hold on to enough points to get the country through to the 2003 Super League, and also clocked up an impressive tally of individual wins.

Last night (Sunday) Lt. Shane Carey was awarded Third in the Athens Leading Rider table, and also managed to finish Fourth in the Athens Grand Prix.

Capt. Gerry Flynn opened the batting at Athens on Thursday (October 3) with a win the Poseidon Stakes, with Lt. Shane Carey on Laughton's Lass in Third, while on the same day squad member Paul O'Shea took his second ever international win on Liffey Valley in the Parthenon Cup.

Gerry Flynn came back on Saturday to win the Philippos Classic speed class, with Lt. Shane Carey slotting into second on Laughton's Lass. Laughton's Lass moved up a gear on Sunday to take First in the Hercules Speed Challenge with Carey on board, and last night lowered just one pole in the Grand Prix, to take Fourth.

The full squad at Athens was Lt. Shane Carey, Capt. Gerry Flynn, Cian O'Connor, Lt. David O'Brien, and Paul O'Shea.
