Da Vinci’s Pride (below), who won the Mullingar and Coilog legs of the HSI Bluegrass Spring Tour, made it a hat trick of wins for Cian in just three weeks.
He was drawn last to go in the opening leg of the TRM National Grand Prix series last Saturday and cruised home a second faster than his nearest rival, the very talented young rider, Michael Duffy.
Cian said afterwards: “Da Vinci’s Pride is just getting better and better. Today everything fell my way. Blue Loyd and KEC Alligator Alley both jumped clear rounds but with a long season in mind iI didn’t put them in the jump off so when Da Vinci’s Pride was clear I knew I had a real chance.”Cian travels to Le Touquet in France this week with all three horses ahead of the CSIO at La Baule the week after.
