The good form of Irish riders and horses continued in the Main Arena on Thursday as Kildare’s Mikey Pender claimed his second success at this year’s show.

Pender, owned and bred by Marion Hughes and partner of the Irish sport horse HHS Fortune, won The Speed ​​Derby for the prize of the Paul Darragh Perpetual Memorial Trophy. The winning combination was two seconds ahead of Tyrone’s Niamh McEvoy with Acconzina PS. Trevor Breen finished third with Gonzalo in a class where Ireland filled the first five places.

The Anglesey Stakes went to Egyptian Noel Nasser with Coronado. Ireland’s anchor, Sean O’Connor, finished as runner-up with his World Championship Mount Sea Vier 2 in Friday’s Longines Nations Cup in Ireland.

The combination was only half a second behind the winner in the 14-horse jump-off, with nine of the jump-off combinations representing Ireland. Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat finished third with Albfuehren Maddox.

Tomorrow and the highlight of the week is the Longines Nations Cup in Ireland for the Aga Khan Perpetual Trophy award.
