Horse Sport Ireland Show Jumping Team Manager Robert Splaine, has announced that Cian O’Connor and Good Luck will be the reserve Irish Show Jumping partnership for the Olympic Games in Rio.
A reserve will only be required in the event that Greg Broderick and/or MHS Going Global (ISH) should be unable to fulfill the engagement.
Robert Splaine said: “Greg Broderick and MHS Going Global confirmed their well-being for the upcoming Olympic Games at Rio De Janeiro by jumping a superb double clear in the Aga Khan trophy at Dublin on Friday, helping Ireland finish on a zero score. Cian O’Connor and Good Luck have shown outstanding form at his most recent outings in top competition at Knokke in Belgium, Aachen in Germany and Dublin where he was also double clear in the Aga Khan and fourth in the Grand Prix. We are very lucky to have such an outstanding combination standing by.”
