Tattersalls Ireland Treo Eile Showing Pathway Series Qualifier – Raheendaw Horse and Pony Show

The second qualifier for the Tattersalls Ireland Treo Eile Showing Pathway Series took place at Raheendaw Horse and Pony Show which took place by kind permission of the Burgess Family. It was wonderful to have Kevin McGuinness judging at the series again this year; Kevin judged at the final of the series last year at the Royal Meath Show.  Joining Kevin, was Rosemary Wentges who is no stranger to the show ring with a hugely successful showing and eventing career to her name.  

In the Novice Section, there were ten entries who made it a very competitive class. The winner on the day was Alannah Tobin and her mother Laura Brennan Tobin’s, Lansing.  Lansing is a 7 year old gelding by Toronado, who had 10 runs on the flat whilst being trained by David Marnane.  This combination started their season with a win at the Show of The East in the Novice Racehorse to Riding Horse Class as well as a successful trip to the Northern Irish Festival. Taking the runner up position was Sarah Lang and the Make Believe gelding, Pollanassa. Bred by Thomas Shirley, the five year old ran eighteen times on the flat before turning to the show ring.

The Open section was equally competitive with sixteen combinations bidding for their qualifying ticket. Vincent Phelan and Askforbigmoney were able to go one better than their second placing at Middleton Show the week previous, and take the victory.  The eight year old gelding by Ask, ran in three point-to-points before turning his hand to the show ring. The combination is no stranger to the winner’s enclosure, they were Reserve Champion at the All-Ireland Open Racehorse to Riding Horse Championship at the Tullow Show last year.  Also booking their ticket to the final in September was Jane Davis and Tiffany’s Gold who came second. The striking six year old grey gelding had one run on the flat before transitioning to his second career.  Earlier this year this combination won the final of the Stepping Stones to Success Thoroughbred League at Wexford Equestrian and they have also made their debut in Eventing with resounding success.
