LENNON WINS MODENA GRAND PRIX

In a remarkable double, two Irish riders have now won major European Grands Prix within the last 48 hours. Dermott Lennon from Co. Down this afternoon (Sunday) completed the double when he snatched the prestigious Modena Grand Prix held at the Pavarotti Horse Show in Italy, and prize money of £55,000 (35 million lira).

Two days ago, the Army Equitation School's Lt. David O'Brien won £20,000 in the Lisbon Grand Prix with his First Place.

Lennon was riding the Irish-bred <Liscalgot>, and came home with a double clear, beating the hotly-tipped German rider Markus Merschformann by
fractions of a second.
