Tomás Doyle followed up from his win at Mullingar to claim to the 7-year-old Studbook Series leg at Cork Summer Show

Leg five of the 2023 Horse Sport Ireland Studbook Series, supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine took place on June 17th and 18th at Cork Summer Show held annually in the Cork Showgrounds.

In the 7-year-old class, ten starters went to post in the final with Co. Wexford’s Tomás Doyle once again taking the spoils as he did in the previous leg in Mullingar at the CSI2* show. This time, Doyle partnered the O.B.O.S Quality 004 (OLD)-sired gelding Monbeg Conspiracy (ISH) to the top spot in a two horse jump off with Co. Waterford’s Gemma Phelan.

The result rocketed the winning partnership up the leader board where they now sit in equal fifth position. Despite having no luck on the day, Doyle maintains his comfortable position on top of the leaderboard with the grey mare Monbeg Ruby (ISH) by Diamant de Semilly (SF) on 27 points ahead of second placed Gerard Clarke and Castleforbes Gillian (ISH) on a total of 19 points.

Phelan got her first points on the leaderboard this season with Curraghgraigue Camillo One (ISH) by Camillo VDL (KWPN), stopping the clock in a time of 50.63 seconds compared to Doyle’s winning time of 46.90 seconds.

Co. Longford’s Oliver Glancy Jnr made the trip to Cork worthwhile when rounding out the podium by taking third place with Clonterm Obolensky (ISH), picking up just two time faults in the first round.

In the 6-year-old division, seven horses jumped first round clears in Sunday’s final. Of those that returned to jump the second round, four horse and rider combinations followed up with a second  clear round.

This was the first leg with a timed jump off this season, with Co. Waterord’s Paul Beecher and Brogagh Darcy (ISH) claiming victory in a time of 45.44 seconds. Co. Wicklow based Junior rider Cian Byrne slotted into second place with the traditionally bred Lunasa Cruise (ISH)[TIH] and not to be outdone by her husband’s victory in the 7-Year-Olds, Marti Rudd completed the podium with Monbeg Sapphire (ISH), with that result moving her into top spot in the 6-Year-Old Studbook Series League on 22 points.

Seven combinations jumped double clear in the 5-year-old class to divide the prizefund, with Tholm Keane and the ever-consistent mare Nairobi (KWPN) moving ahead of Linda Moloney and Sir Escobar (ISH) in the league standings.

Keane and Nairobi (KWPN) move onto a total of 27 points, ahead of Young Rider Annie Courtney-Cadam and LCC Dunard Lady Dominator on 25 points, and the Moloney/Sir Escobar partnership on 24 points.

It’s still all to play for as the HSI Studbook Series moves north to National Balmoral on July 7th and 8th.
