Wellington, FL (March 17, 2019) – Turf Tour Week 10 goes to Ireland’s Willie Tynan: after winning Wednesday’s $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic with KEC Kris Kringle, he went on to win Friday’s $15,000 1.40 Turf Tour Grand with KEC City Limits. Tynan certainly seemed to be channeling the luck of the Irish leading into St. Patrick’s Day. With only two weeks to go, the Turf Tour is closing out strong in 2019 with back to back weeks at Black Watch Farm, which will include double points towards season prizes (which include a custom golf cart from Iron Horse Transit) and bumped up money in the Grand Prix during Finale week.

Tynan and KEC City Limits, who are known for their quick jump-offs, certainly proved their reputation against the class of 36 Friday afternoon at Carben Farms. Whisking into the lead on 34. 732, they overtook previous leader Alison Robitalle and Ginger Pop, who finished in second. Third went to Molly Ashe-Cawley and Adamo against a roster of jumpers such as Samuel Perot, Darragh Kenny, Ilan Bluman, and Hardin Towell. “Another great day for me and my horses on the Turf Tour,” said Tynan. “Happy to have such a placement in such a big class; my horses have been jumping exceptionally this year on the Turf Tour.”

Wellington, FL (March 14, 2019) – For the third time this year, Ireland’s Willie Tynan topped the Turf Tour’s $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic. Kicking off the third to last week of the thirteen-week series, Wednesday’s competition at the beautiful Carben Farms saw an amazing 47 horses try their hand over the Rising Star course designed by Leopoldo Palacios.

Tynan’s third to last trip with KEC Kris Kringle proved to be unbeatable, finishing on 36.843 seconds in the jump-off. Second went to March 22’s Turf Tour Grand Prix winner Taylor St. Jaques and Qantar Des Etisses with a 38.294 and third to Illan Ferder and Fascination with 41.987 seconds. “Kris Kringle and City Limits both have been jumping fantastic this year,” said Willie Tynan of the two horses he has been campaigning on the 2019 Turf Tour. “Jumping on the grass in always a nice change and gives the horses a break from one sand arena after another. Both are very fast, and Kris Kringle proved his skill over this course.”

Tynan Takes $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic

Wellington, FL (March 2, 2019) – The final day of February and first day of March welcomed competitors to The Ridge at Wellington’s home farm, where two days of show jumping featuring both grass and sand footing, .80m Grand Prix, and complimentary hospitality marked the eighth week of the 2019 Turf Tour. Ireland’s Willie Tynan and USA’s Peter Jordan ruled the week in the show’s two highlight classes: the $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic and $15,000 1.40m Turf Tour Grand Prix.

Thursday Willie Tynan and KEC City Limits claimed their second victory of the year on the Turf Tour, jumping clear and fast to win the $5,000 1.30m Rising Star Classic. Tynan also placed second in the class aboard KEC Kris Kringle, and Peter Jordan rounded out the top three with Ciemusic Z. Jordan continued his streak of top placings in Friday’s Grand Prix, winning the class with Eurhythmic Cr. Cloe Reid and Sally 643 jumped to second, and Rowan Willis aboard Zipiro came in third.

“I had to ride every stride,” said Jordan about the grass field course designed by Mauricio Ballesteros. “We brought five horses to show this week in preparation for the Live Oak International in March, which is also on grass. We’ve been showing regularly at The Ridge and it’s been a great experience, especially for the horses.”

Week 8’s Rising Star victor, Willie Tynan, had a similar review of The Ridge: “The Turf Tour has been a great show to build up the horses and prepare for even bigger classes. It’s a great stepping stone, and both Kris Kringle and City Limits are great horses, and enjoyed working and jumping in a new environment and on grass footing.”
