Francis Connors & Uskerty Diamond Lady winners of the HSI/ Connolly’s RED MILLS Munster Grand Prix League 2015.
Well done to Francis Connors, Hilda Anthony and all connected to them. They’ve had a magnificent year of 2015 with Uskerty Diamond lady (by Carrick Diamond Lad) winning 6 legs of the Connolly’ Red Mills Munster Grand Prix League, 2 second and 2 third place finishes from 11 starts. Connors amassed a huge total of 90 points with Uskerty Diamond Lady, giving him a 34 point winning margin over runner-up Liam O’Meara. They also had wins and placings in the Leinster Grand Prix League, not forgetting their win in the inaugural Bet Show Jumping Live at the Mullingar Equestrian International Horse Show in May that was sponsored by Devenish Nutritionto the tune of €20,000 (€10,000 1st prize) and they also won the Speed Derby at Millstreet Horse Show’s Green Glens Arena in August. It is some record to have and an enviable one, I don’t think any other horse has as good a start/win ratio this year!
