Splendor wins the Christmas Pudding Stakes at the Olympia

  • Splendor winning the Christmas Pudding Stakes at the Olympia

Cian, riding 13 year old gelding Splendor, claimed the big class of the night, the 1.50m Christmas Pudding Stakes at the Olympia.

One of only 7 horses in the jump off, Splendor posted a clear round and the fastest time, beating Britain's Tina Fletcher by 2.52 seconds.

Cian, who is Ireland’s only representative at the London venue, said: "I hadn't really planned on turning that tight back to the double but I got a rush of blood to the head and it came off! Splendor loves this arena and has won here previously so I was thrilled that we were able to win the feature 1.50m jump off class on the opening day."
