Luck seems to have nothing to do with it when it comes to the Irish winning at the 2019 Spruce Meadows Summer Series. The forty-three athletes representing eleven nations took to Meadows on the Green for the 1.45m AltaGas Cup. Among them were five Irish riders, each with multiple top placings from this year's Summer Series Tournaments.

Nine horse-and-rider combinations made it through round one with no jumping faults and proceeded to the jump-off. The competition was tough with riders taking risks hoping they would pay off and land them at the top of the leader board. Dermott Lennon (IRL) was third last to go in the jump-off and was itching for a win. Aboard MJM Pursuit (Aldato x Limmerick), the paired posted a clear round with a quick time of 35.11s. Teammate Darragh Kenny (IRL), who has had multiple trips to the winner's circle this summer, did his best to catch Lennon but came up short with a time of 35.69s aboard Scarlett Du Sart Z (Stakkato x First Bride).
