Team Ballypatrick had an unforgettable week at the 2017 Dublin Horse Show with Greg notching up two international wins with Zuidam, first in Wednesday’s Speed Stakes, and then following it up with a double in Thursday’s Speed Derby.
Meanwhile in Simmonscourt Darragh Ryan won the first six-year-old qualifier on Boleybawn Actor and then added another with a win in the five-year-old equivalent on the Ballypatrick Stables home-bred BP First Editions.
In Sunday’s final Darragh first slotted into fourth and seventh in the Cruising six-year-old championship with Lackamore Storm and Boleybawn Actor and then went on to win the five-year-old championship on BP First Editions (above). By Verdi, his dam Ballypatrick Flight is a sister to MHS Going Global.
It was also a good week for American student Rosalie Bierdron who was placed second in the 1.25-1.30m young riders with LVS Wizard.
To top off a fantastic few days Greg was crowned Leading International Rider of the Show on Sunday.
