Slattery's Lead Secure

The Irish Independant - Friday 17th November 2000.
By Louise Parkes

East Clare Equestrian Centre stages the final home indoor international fixture this weekend but the Horsepower Indoor League title has already been decided.

Tom Slattery, who made it a double when taking the outdoor league award for the second year, heads the indoor leaderboard by 11 points going into Sunday's £3,500 Castle Carriages Grand Prix and cannot be beaten.

Once again, sheer consistency from Micháel McKeigue's stallion Coille Mór Hill, has earned another national title form the Galwayman who also had five outdoor wins on the way to the summer's Isuzu title.

Slattery's closest rival, Cian O'Connor, Leading International Rider at last weekend in Cavan, is 11 points behind Slattery and with only 10 points available to the winner of each leg, cannot threaten the leader.

Third on the league table are Lt. David O'Brien and Boherdeal Clover, the partnership that took last weekend's Aer Rianta Grand Prix title at Cavan, but they are 15 points behind so Slattery can be assured or the £3,000 Horsepower League winner-takes-all purse.

This is the fourth running of the East Clare International Show and it has again attracted a strong squad of British contenders including Andrew Davies who won the Millstreet round of the World Cup series with Captain Wellington.

Slattery Resumes Irish
Hold on Derby Honour

The Irish Times - Mon 27th July 1998.
By Marie-Claire Digby

Equestrian Sport: The home side kept the sole foreign challenger at bay when Tom Slattery (Coille Mor Hill) pinned back Portugal's Miguel Bravo (Charlton) in the £15,000 Heineken Derby at Millstreet yesterday and secured Ireland's first victory since 1993 in this annual classic.

After a course inspection at 8.30 a.m. yesterday, the Derby was moved indoors for the second year in succession due to waterlogged ground, and 35 went to post before a capacity crowd in the former Eurovision arena. "I wasn't going to jump if it had been outside; I was going to keep the horse right for Dublin Horse Show," Slattery admitted after collecting his £5,000 winner's cheque.

The zero scores came thick and fast in the first round, with 12 winning through to the showdown against the clock. But a twisting track, requiring accurate and positive riding, then sorted out the field. Early favourite Marion Hughes (Flo Jo) dropped out of contention when the mare clipped the top pole of the first fence, but the Kilkenny rider kept the revs up to finish in 33.90 seconds, the fastest time of the day and good enough for third place.

The first clear round of the jump-off came from Bravo, currently based in Kilkenny, who makes an effective team with Charlton, a young horse produced by Hughes, from whom he snatched the lead yesterday.

Any possibility of a foreign victory was held at bay, however, by a commanding performance from Slattery and the stallion Coille Mor Hill, which the Tynagh rider credits with having "the mind of a thoroughbred, even though he's a draught".

Leaving little room for improvement in his circuit, Slattery crossed the finish line a decisive nine seconds to the good, earning himself the Heineken cheque and the Seamus Hayes memorial trophy for the leading international rider of the meeting.

Former Aga Khan star James Kernan, who has been off the international circuit for two years, marked his return by claiming victory in the Dairygold Boomerang championship yesterday with the grey stallion Special K II.

Other news from Millstreet centred on the confirmation of Kerrygold, backers of next month's Dublin Horse Show, as sponsors of the World Cup qualifier to be staged at the Co. Cork showgrounds in November.
