Team Karlswood Wipe The Boards At Millstreet

Millstreet proved a profitable week for Cian and his Karlswood riders. Mark Kinsella won the Accumulator with Rocco and Cian was runner up with Goldex. Deane Rogan partnered Captain Rossi to second place in the 4yr old final.

The prestigious Boomerang competition for 6 and 7 yr olds always looked like it was going to be Cian's as he was first and second in the qualifiers with Everything and then took the final in great style.

Cian's new mount Carpe Diem didn’t put a foot wrong all week when clear in the Grand Prix qualifier and then double clear in the Grand Prix to finish second.

Ballymore Eustace (right) was star of the show, however, when all the months spent schooling and training finally paid off. Cian thinks a lot of this horse and so has brought him along slowly. They jumped an immaculate double clear and pipped Cian's own time by .04 to claim the title.
