TWELVE horses have qualified for the Young Eventhorse Series RDS national equestrian championship for four- and five-year-old Irish Draughts which takes place at Lambertstown on Tuesday.

Among the dozen is one stallion, Katie Stafford’s Dennistown Prince Of Pride, a much-beribboned and highly acclaimed five-year-old by Crosstown Pride (a son of Crosstown Dancer) out of the Golden Trump mare Ballylusk Sunday Dawn. The chesnut’s small first crop of foals are now yearlings.
