Tipperary’s Trevor Breen and the Willy Matton-owned grey mare Bombay have won today’s (Sunday) two-star Grand Prix at Opglabbeek in Belgium, just a month after the pair scored a double of wins at a four-star show in Spain.
Breen and Bombay (Lord Z x Bon Ami) were one of a dozen combinations who made it through to the jump-off where a clear round in 40.01 seconds saw them land the first prize of €6,250 ahead of Canada’s Eric Lamaze in second with Chesney (40.31). Belgium’s Pieter Clemens finished third with Calvino de Nyze Z (40.41), while Cian O’Connor completed a good result for Irish riders by filling fourth place with Clenur (40.69).
In March, Trevor Breen and the 11-year-old Bomay won the Grand Prix at the Spanish Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera having also won the qualifier at the same venue.
