Edited press release from Tops International Arena


On a fantastic first day of great sport at Tops International Arena, Daniel Coyle took top honours with Oak Grove's Carlyle (Casall x San Patrignano Corrado), beating fellow Irishman Denis Lynch on Rubens LS La Silla (HH Rebozo x Cash) by just 0.09 of a second. 

Jos Verlooy was on flying form after winning the first CSI5* class of the weekend earlier in the day and also securing third place with Luciano van het Geinsteinde (Quinn van de Heffinck x Air Jordan) in the fast and furious 1.50m speed class built by world-class course designer Uliano Vezzani.

Some of show jumping’s brightest stars were early out of the starting blocks but the poles fell in the early rounds, demonstrating the high level of difficulty of this exciting class. There were 15 clears in total from some of the biggest names in the sport but no one could match the lightning-fast time of Daniel Coyle today. Kevin Staut on Bond Jamesbond de Hay (Diamant de Semilly x Kannan) placed fourth and Tobias Meyer on Greatest Boy-H (Carrera VDL x Great Pleasure) fifth.
