19 Year-Old Walsh Wins Millstreet Derby

DUBLIN RIDER DAN Walsh took a surprise win at the prestigious Millstreet Derby, Co. Cork today (Sunday) with <Evening Herald Normandy>, the horse
that helped launch the international career of Nations Cup rider Cian O'Connor.

The 19 yr-old Walsh, who is based in O'Connor's Copperalley Yard in Maynooth, rode the French-bred gelding in a faultless winning round, beating more seasoned campaigners from the Kerrygold Grand Prix circuit.

Normandy in the past has carried Cian O'Connor to three European Young Rider Championships and won a Team Silver Medal at Hartpury in July of 2000. The horse has also been a member of four senior Nations Cup teams.

Dan Walsh was the winner of the 2001 RDS Young Riders Bursary, and this year won the Holmestead 1.35m Young Riders' Final at the Kerrygold Horse Show.
