SHOW JUMPING – Kilkenny’s Eddie Moloney Scores Second LST Win In A Week At Coilog

For the second time in seven days, Eddie Moloney proved unbeatable in the Leinster Summer Tour, as the Kilkenny rider followed up his win at Iverk show a week earlier, with another victory at Coilog Equestrian Centre in Co Kildare.
Moloney’s latest win came aboard his own eight year old gelding Boncouver, who is by the sire Vancover out of a Cento dam.
One of eight from the 23 starters to make it into the jump-off, Eddie Moloney crossed the finish line clear in 33.09 seconds, just under a second ahead of runner-up Tom Slattery with the promising seven year Cardenio mare Castleforbes Talitha who is out of a Baloubet de Rouet dam.
Laois based Vickie Anderson followed up her third place finish at Iverk, with a similar result at Coilog when riding the Olive Anderson owned Zack, who comfortably posted the fastest time of the competition (27.24), however one fence on the floor cost them a shot at victory.
Gerard Clarke maintained his push for overall league honours with a fourth place finish aboard Kings Best, just ahead of Captain Geoff Curran who took fifth place with Seapatrick, while Tom Slattery took another share of the prize fund when grabbing sixth spot with Castleforbes Cicely.
The final round of the LST will take place on Sunday next 7th September at the Irish Breeders Classic Show in Barnadown Co Wexford, with a large group of riders still in with a chance of  being crowned 2014 Leinster Summer Tour Champion.
