Along with hosting the most prestigious young horse classes on the national calendar, the Irish Breeders Classic at Barnadown also hosted the finals of the TRM/HSI New Heights Premier Series, the SJI National Grand Prix and the Mervue Equine Leinster Summer Tour.

The final of the 1.35m Mervue Leinster Summer Tour took centre stage at the Co Wexford venue on Friday. 82 combinations went to post and of those seven delivered double clears. Francis Connors lodged the winning round with Capitol Cruise. Kenneth Graham and George filled second place. Taking third was Ailish Connolly and Eletta Molino.
