Press release from Horse Sport Ireland


Peter Moloney and the Team Harmony-owned mare Ornellaia (For Pleasure x Calato) have taken a superb win in Sunday's four-star Grand Prix at the Spanish Sunshine Tour in Vejer De La Frontera.

Just five of the 50 starters managed to jump clear in the opening round. Moloney and the 14-year-old Ornellaia set what proved an unbeatable target of clear in 43.25 seconds to claim the winners prize of almost €23,500. Switzerland’s Carlo Pfyffer came closest to matching the Irish rider with a clear in 43.10 to finish second.

Speaking afterwards, Peter Moloney was thrilled with Ornellaia who is a very recent addition to his string of horses: “The mare felt amazing. This was my first show with her. I just jumped the small class with her on Thursday, jumped the ranking class on Friday and jumped clear and I decided not to go in the jump-off and it paid off today. It feels really good, she hasn’t jumped since November and she is new to me, we are still trying to figure her out and this was an amazing result.”
