Tipperary’s Greg Broderick and Duco (Vigaro x Calvados) have recorded their second TRM/Horse Sport Ireland New Heights Champions Series win in-a-row, taking the second round of the series today at Portmore in Co Armagh.
Broderick and the Mary Ellen De Ruschi-owned 10-year-old gelding Duco came out on top a week ago at The Meadows Equestrian Centre in Lurgan and at Portmore they produced the only double clear round of the competition to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Eight of the 35 starters went forward to the second round jump-off with Nicholas Butler and Vimminka taking runner-up spot, while Jake Hunter was the highest-placed Young Rider in equal third with Cento Blue. He shared third place with Tholm Keane riding BMH Big Time ahead of Ciaran Nallon (Arkino Z) in fifth and Capt. Geoff Curran in sixth with Hallowberry Cruz.
The third round of the TRM/Horse Sport Ireland New Heights Champions Series takes place in Ballinasloe on May 27th.
