Trevor Breen claimed the famous Hickstead Derby for the second year in a row.
Tipperary native Breen, who last year won the Derby on Adventure de Kannan, today Trevor and Patricia Brown’s Irish Sport Horse “Loughnatousa WB” took the victory with the only clear round.
With no other clear rounds recorded in the competition, Breen took home Hickstead’s Boomerang Derby Trophy and the 46,000 euro winner’s prize, with Cork’s Billy Twomey coming closest to his fellow countryman with just four faults on Diaghilev, finishing in equal second place.
Loughnatousa WB is a former winner of the Derby with former rider and producer, Ireland’s Paul Beecher.
Interesting to note, 5 out of the top 8 horses were IRISH bred.
Congratulations Trevor, all his team and to everyone who took part!!!
