Kilkenny-born Richie Moloney, and Equanimity LLC’s Call Me Number One was one of only four double-clears in the event, and his time of 54.351 was bettered only by New Zealand’s Sharn Wordley on Casper and American Schuyler Riley who took top spot on Q-7 in a time of 50.627.
Co Clare’s David Blake and Pine Hollow Farms ‘Binkie’ place yet again in a Big money Grand Prix. This strong combination put in a lighting-fast round, however, four faults meant they had to settle for 6th place.
