VICTORIA Bridge rider Jonathan Smyth continued his recent good form by winning the 1.35m SJI Autumn Grand Prix in Portmore on Saturday.
Riding James McKean’s Cafre Olympic Dream, he was fastest of just four double clears in a time of 33.53 in the six-way jump-off.
Bred by CAFRE, the eight-year-old mare, is by Mermus R and out of the Concorde (KWPN) sired dam, ISHD First Light.
This is the second impressive result for this combination of late, having also won the Ulster Grand Prix in the Meadows in September.
This latest success for the north Tyrone man comes just six days after Smyth had claimed victory in the 1.40m SJI Autumn Grand Prix at Cavan aboard Charlton Clio.
