Thomas Ryan and Quite Zero make it a home win in the Millstreet Grand Prix

Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Despite a strong British presence in the top ten at the CSI3* 1.55 Millstreet Grand Prix on Sunday it was Ireland's Thomas Ryan who eventually took the 16,500 euro prize when he outpaced UK challenger Ellen Whitaker by a comfortable three seconds in the final round. The 29 year-old rider was piloting the bay stallion Quite Zero (Quite Capitol x Landgraf I) to the only double clear of the class, as runner-up Whitaker had a time fault against the clock aboard Le Beau. Ellen's compatriot Holly Gillot continued her superb form on Dougie Douglas (Ard Vdl Douglas x High Roller) to end third, with the fastest time of the class but on the expense of a rail down.
