Liam O’ Meara and ‘Mr Coolcaum’ have won the first round of the HSI/Connolly RED MILLS Spring Tour at Kildare International Equestrian Centre.
Tom Holden set a tough track for the 58 starters but such was the quality of today’s field that saw such a big number make the second round.
Last to go, O’Meara knew the task at hand with Sean Kavanagh lying in pole position after a foot perfect round on Brockwood Supersonic. However, the eventual winner managed to shave almost 3 seconds off Sean Kavanaghs time to go into the lead and take the win.
