Foley and Cian impress


TOM FOLEY scored an impressive win overnight on Wednesday at the three-star show in Tryon, USA while yesterday Olympic medallist Cian O'Connor was victorious at Arnhem's three-star in the Netherlands.

Nineteen year-old Foley, riding Spy Coast Farm's mare Beluga, was the only one of 39 starters to break the 60 second barrier on the clock, coming home in 59.56.

O'Connor and Adena Springs's mare Quidam's Cherie were fastest in a huge field of over 90 starters at the three-star Netherlands show in Arnhem, while Captain Michael Kelly and the Irish Sport Horse Ringwood Glen took sixth place.
