Molly Malone grabs first leg of World Cup Final!

Bertram Allen and his AES registered mare Molly Malone V (Kannan) won the speed class of the World Cup Final in Las Vegas. Last year during the WEG in Normandy, he also topped this first speed class. Finally he ended up in seventh spot at the world championship. This year he can maybe do even better? Allen edged out Rich Fellers (Flexible), the winner of the finals in ’s Hertogenbosch two years ago. Alternate rider Patrice Delaveau (Orient Express HDC, v. Quickstar) placed third equally with Jur Vrieling (VDL Zirocco Blue). Olympic champion Steve Guerdat (Paille) placed fifth. Last year’s World Cup winner Daniel Deusser (Cornet d’Amour) made one mistake and placed tenth.
