The sixteenth leg of the Horseware/TRM National Grand Prix League 2014 took place on Saturday at Tattersalls July Show in Ratoath, Co. Meath.

The Grand Prix, supported by the Ward Union Hunt and ShowjumpingIreland, carried a purse of €4000 as well as being the qualifying class for the Horseware/TRM Premier Grand Prix which takes place the following day.

In a very competitive class 98 riders took on Tom Holden’s track on a overcast day which made jumping a lot easier than the humid sunshine we have been seeing in recent days. 17 competitors had clear rounds to put them through to the jump off. Riders complimented on the grounds which had been watered all week and had a good covering of grass and all the facilities available to them on the day.

It was Greg Broderick who took the top spot with Noel Cawley’s, Rincarina, the 10year old Mare by Cruising out of a Diamond Lad mare.

Greg followed up with his win in the National Grand Prix, when taking the winners prize in the €10,000 Horseware/TRM Premier Series Grand Prix. Sunday’s Premier Series win, came aboard the Caledonia Stables owned eight year-old gelding MHS Going Global, with whom Broderick also won the previous round of the lucrative Premiere Series at Cork Summer Show.

From the 42 starters, eleven went through to the jump off against the clock, which saw just two riders managing to post double clear rounds. Greg Broderick crossed the finish line clear in 51.65 seconds with the son of Guidam Junior, a full nine seconds faster than runner up Kilkenny’s Eddie Moloney with Chatsworth Dan, who also kept all the poles standing in a time of 60.84.
Army rider Captain Geoff Curran from Co Waterford took third place with Mullaghbane after finishing with one time fault in both the first and second rounds.
Greg Broderick has now extended his lead at the top of the Premier Series league table, while he has also closed the gap on leader Vincent Byrne in the National Grand Prix league, a title Broderick won for the second time in 2013.

The 2014 League now moves to South County Show in Coilog Equestrian Centre for the seventeenth leg on Saturday 2nd August.
