Wellington, Florida – April 24, 2022 – In the afternoon’s $35,000 Horseware Ireland Spring III Grand Prix, 48 entries jumped the course for a shot at the blue ribbon and the greatest cut of the prize money. Following the first portion of riding, four partnerships had earned a spot in the jump-off, with Farrington posing the greatest chance of victory with two qualified mounts. In the end, Farrington did clinch the win with Electrique, owned by Farrington and Haity McNerney, as the only double-clear duo.
Kristen Vanderveen (USA) and Bull Run’s Faustino de Tili, owned by Bull Run Jumpers Five LLC, captured the second-place position as the fastest of the four-faulters in 39.89 seconds, followed by Mimi Gochman (USA) aboard Gigi’s Girl BH, owned by Govhman Sport Horses LLC, in a four-fault time of 42.94 seconds for third place.
Thanks to consistent placings over the course of the Spring Series thus far, Farrington was also awarded the $1,000 Assets Risk Management National Grand Prix Rider Bonus.
