MEATH’ Nicky Galligan led the victory lap in the four-star $75,000 Grand Prix qualifier at the prestigious four-star Hampton Classic Horse Show in America, with the Irish Sport Horse mare Javas Miss Jordan.

One of 25 starters, the combination was fastest of just four double clears over the Alan Wade-designed course, crossing the line in 31.32. The pair was just fractions ahead of USA’s Schuyler Riley and Robin de Ponthual, who clocked 31.83.
