WEXFORD’s Bertram Allen continued his winning run of results, with victory at the Spanish three-star show in Vejer De La Frontera today (Sunday).
Twenty-year-old Allen guided the 13-year-old mare Wild Thing L to the fastest clear round in the speed contest, to take home the winners prize of €6,000. Allen also finished sixth in the Grand Prix at Vejer with Izzy By Picobello, a single time fault costing them a place in the jump-off.
Meanwhile at Vilamoura in Portugal, Antrim’s Harry Marshall finished seventh in the Grand Prix with Bordeaux. Also in Portugal, Tipperary’s Padraig McCarthy finished fourth in the two-star Eventing competition at Barroca D’alva with Mr Chunky.
