Irish Victory in the Hickstead Derby

This year, an Irish rider was able to secure the victory in the Hickstead Derby: Trevor Breen and Irish gelding Loughnatousa W B were the only pair to stay clear in the challenging course. Five riders at once had one fence down and therefore all finished in second place: four British and one Irish. However, among the other top placements there were four Irish horses. Similar to the Hamburg Derby, at the Hickstead Derby mainly specialists compete in the course with natural obstacles.
