It’s a joy to see the confidence that the younger riders are gaining at each show and a special mention goes to Watson’s two riders this week Anna Drumm & Hannah Fagan ..
Hard work pays off and Francesca Williams Webster was knocking on the door with a consistent run of clear rounds over the past couple of Sundays . This week her time of 38.30 in the 70cm class was good enough for first place with little dividing Just Little / Ellie Rogan ( 41.22 ) & Ted Fagan /Thunder ( 41.66 ) for runner up & 3rd positions , two of our youngest riders at just 8 years of age & Happy Birthday to Ellie who only celebrated her 8th birthday yesterday. Great season ahead for all these young competitors who are getting in lots of practice & its still only January . Miriam Kenna & Warrior took home the winning rosette in the 18 + section with a very stylish clear in a fantastic time of 34.98 from Finola Clogher& Tommy ( 38.12 )
The 80cm class was not for the fainted hearted as the Kavanagh sisters skillfully demonstrated how to find the shortest way around the jump off course with Lauren stopping the clock in a time for 25.18 from Keelan in 28.22 . The super partnership of Lauren Cole & Misty finished third, clear in a time of 29.25. A delighted David Molloy & Bracken won out the 18 + section followed by another great clear in the 90cm competition .
Another great effort from Lauren Cole & Misty finishing with a time of 34.16 was good enough to take the honours in the 90cm from beautiful rounds from the Jones’s sisters Ellen & Lucy & Ellie O Keeffe. Great to see Michael Keavney & Fred back competing in the 90cm & despite Michael’s best efforts to bury himself in the shrubbery on the turn back to the last he held on for dear life to break the beam with a fantastic time of 27.97.
There was no catching Alanna Fagan & Sunny in the Metre event as she confidently twisted & turned to jump clear in a great time of 30.21 from Jessica Fryday & Dixie clear in 34.87
Really looking forward to our Sunday League Final next Sunday February 3rd . All the usual classes kicking off at 10.30
Clear your diaries for 1 extra Sunday for our Valentine Derby Show on February 10th .
