Ger O’Neill is certainly proving to be a force to be reckoned with as he rode to victory in the Horseware/TRM National Grand Prix at Galway County Show last Saturday. Riding Dondoctro Ryal K, he was one of only three double clear rounds in 30.01 seconds in the €5,000 Walsh Heating and Plumbing Galway-sponsored class. This is the second Grand Prix win for this combination having claimed victory earlier at Barnadown.
The win puts O’Neill top of the leader board just ahead of Damien Patrick Griffin. O’Neill has had a good run on the national circuit as he dominated the RDS horse qualifiers with his team at Castlefield Sport Horses taking no less than eight qualifying slots.
