Richie Moloney won his second class this week at the 39th Annual Hampton Classic, guiding Asvid to the top prize in the $10,000 Royalton Farm Open Jumper during the Wednesday morning session. His jump-off time of 39.173 seconds nipped Ramiro Quintana on Versus (39.562) and Michael Hughes on MacArthur (41.462). On Tuesday, Moloney, 32, won the $10,000 Newsday Open jumper, on Bailey.
Victory in the $10,000 Royalton Farm Open Jumper added 50 points to Moloney's total in the $30,000 Longines Rider Challenge, which he won in 2013. Moloney's 125 points puts him second to fellow Irishman Darragh Kenny (158). Shane Sweetnam, another U.S.-based Irishman, is third (105), with American Lillie Keenan fourth (90).
