Ireland's Darragh Kenny won Friday's CSIO5* 1.45m El Periódico Trophy in Barcelona. The victory in this Longines Ranking competition came aboard the 11-year-old mare Fixdesign Funke van't Heike (Action-Breaker x Grandeur), against thirty other competitors who raced against the clock in this table C class. 

It was 0.58 seconds that separated Kenny from runner-up John Whitaker on Echo Of Light (Come On x Contender), while hot on their heels was Swiss rider Nadja Peter Steiner on Capuera II (Come On x Baloubet du Rouet) just another 0.10 seconds behind the British legend. Fourth place went to home rider Eduardo Alvarez Aznar on Seringat (Chef Rouge x Guillaume Tell), while Colombia's Rene Lopez finished fifth.
