K Club Lady Takes 2nd Place In St. Gallen Grand Prix

Cian and Dr. Michael Smurfit's mare 'K Club Lady' finished 2nd in the Swiss Grand Prix at St.Gallen on Sunday, jumping one of only two double clears from a starting list of 47.

Cian said after the competition: " I am delighted with the mare and delighted for the owner, as this is his first show jumper." 

With 12 through to the second phase of the competition, K Club Lady was first to go of the three clear rounds and finished on a zero score, but was eventually beaten on time by Germany's Carsten-Otto Nagel with 'Corradina'.

Cian added: "After a less than perfect first round in the Nations' Cup on Friday it was great to show that the mare can produce a double clear at this level, which is really new to her. She's as careful as a kitten, but has the heart of a lion, and in my opinion is one of the best vertical jumpers around. I thought her performance today was brilliant."
