Lynch lights up Leipzig
A
N
outstanding
performance
from
Tipperary’s
Denis
Lynch has seen him
take a commanding
victory in Sunday’s vestar Longines FEI World
Cup Grand Prix at Leipzig in
Germany, coming out on top
after a 16-horse jump-off,
which featured many of the
world’s top horses and riders.
Riding
the
14-year-old
gelding ‘GC Chopin’s Bushi’,
who is owned by Onyx
Consulting, Lynch took the
lead when ninth to go in the
jump-off with a stunning clear
round, which saw him cross
the line in 33.16 seconds.
Only one rider managed to
nish within a second of the
Irish winner, while keeping
the fences standing, with
Germany’s Christian Ahlmann
and ‘Dominator 2000 Z’ taking
runner-up spot in 33.37. Third
place also went to a German
rider after Marcus Ehning
crossed the line clear in
34.25 with ‘Comme il Faut’.
Britain’s Robert Whitaker did
manage to beat Lynch’s time
when second last to go, but
one fence on the oor saw his
chances of victory end with
‘Catwalk IV’.
Denis Lynch rst began
riding ‘GC Chopin’s Bushi’
midway through last season
and Sunday’s win comes
just a week after the pair
nished as runners-up in the
Longines Grand Prix at Basel
in Switzerland.
