Bertram Allen and Molly Malone V win the CSI3* Grand Prix in Geesteren

28 June - The 19 year-old Bertram Allen and Molly Malone V won the Geesteren Grand Prix in the Netherlands.

Bertram Allen jumped what looked like an almost effortless two rounds in the Netherlands Grand Prix with Ballywalter Farms’s mare Molly Malone V, speeding home in the 13 horse jump-off in a blistering 42.79 seconds. Austria’s Julia Kayser came closest to Allen with the stallion Sterrehof’s Cayetano Z, but was over four seconds off the pace of the world’s number five-ranked rider.

Third place went to Alberto Zorzi from Italy riding Amour de Seigneur (Schilling x Darco).

Allen collected a Mercedes CLA car as his prize for the Grand Prix victory.
