Victory in the inaugural TRM/Horseware New Heights Champion Series at Louth County Show, last Sunday belonged to Rio Olympian, Greg Broderick. Riding Pearl Bledron’s Charmeur the Tipperary rider lodged the winning round when clear in 44.99 seconds and took the winner’s share of the €10,000 on offer.

Charmeur (KWPN) is a 10-year-old gelding by Calvaro Z out of the Heartbreaker-sired mare Wirkeness. A new partnership, having only taking over the ride in February, Broderick took over campaigning the gelding at Vejer de la Frontera CSI3* and later in Cagnes-sur-Mer CSI3*. Prior to this the gelding was campaigned by Kayleigh Watts with much success up to CSI4* level.
