FEI World Cup: Richie Moloney wins in North Salem.

Moloney 0

Richie Moloney has claimed victory at the North Salem leg of the FEI World Cup.
The Irishman opted for accuracy and precision over speed with his run, and it was a tactic that paid dividends, as he was the only rider to clear the course in both rounds with his mount Carrabis Z in a competition worth 215.000 $.
Just six clears had been registered after the first stage, with Colombian duo Daniel Bluman and Conconcreto Sancha LS the first pairing to take to the field for round 2 and stopping the clock in 43.38 seconds but with 4 penalties.
Next round the course was 21 year-old Catherine Tyree, the youngest participant, who didn’t manage to fly around the course with Enjoy Louis and had to settle for a fifth place finish. Laura Kraut with Deauville S did manage a quick time however to take second place with 4 penalties.
Richie Moloney was up next after Kraut and was faultless with his run. Neither Canadian rider Peter Lutz nor Germany’s Andre Thieme could do better, meaning the Irishman could celebrate his win. Commenting afterwards, Moloney admitted qualification to the FEI World Cup final is now a possibility but it is not his main goal.
