Derry’s Daniel Coyle has scored his second five-star win in less than 24 hours, after he was named joint winner of last night’s (Saturday) 1m50 Canadian Utilities Cup with the Susan Grange-owned Tienna.

Unusually both Coyle with Tienna and American rider Leslie Howard riding Donna Speciale, finished the jump-off in exactly the same time of 36.44 seconds after a gripping 11 horse jump-off.

World No.1 Kent Farrington finished third with Dublin, almost half a second behind the winners (36.82).

Coyle had earlier come out on top in Friday’s Scotiabank Cup at the world famous Canadian venue with the mare Cita.

This latest win bring to six the number of five-star wins by Irish riders in the last week. Coyle has scored three five-star wins at Spruce Meadows while Cian O’Connor has also recorded a hat-trick of wins – one at Sopot in Poland last week and a double this weekend at Treffen in Austria.
