However, though the same horse had delivered victory for Kenny at Wellington just last month, this time he was edged narrowly out of the top spot by in-form American rider Andrew Ramsay on the Dutch-bred Welfare.Meanwhile, in the Under 25 Grand Prix Semi-Final at Wellington’s Palm Beach Equestrian Centre, Ireland’s 22 year-old Stephen Moore went head-to-head with Germany’s Laurenz Buhl in a tie-breaking jump-off. The two were the only competitors from a starting field of 34 to clear the challenging track set by Irish course designer Alan Wade.First to go, Buhl and River Dance Semilly completed the short course in a fast time of 45.67 seconds, but dropped a rail at the final fence that left the win in the balance. Moore tried for a clear round, but also had a rail on the course with Fantasy. His time was slower at 45.78 seconds, to put the pair in second place.Darragh Kennycenter_img 18 August 2015, 19:50 Splaine names Investec Irish team for tomorrow’s vital European Championships 10 August 2015, 23:38 Splaine names Investec squad for European Championships at Aachen 20 July 2020, 10:14 Belgian Grand Prix win for Sligo’s Richard Howley as Irish impress in Europe and USA Kenny and Moore deliver two seconds for Ireland in Florida 7 August 2015, 19:49 Ireland wins the 2015 Aga Khan Trophy with fence in handlast_img
