Irish rider Cian O’Connor picked up a further 7,000 euro in prize money and vital Rolex ranking points, on Friday evening on his second week at the annual Spanish Sunshine Tour at Vejer de la Frontera.

His Irish-bred Cruising gelding ‘Larkhill Cruiser’ beat French challenger Roger Yves Bost and his successful Selle Francais mare ‘Nikyta d’Elle’ by just under a second, as he had done last Friday in the same competition.

Earlier, O’Connor took second place in the Big Tour C 1m40 speed class with the Holsteiner mare ‘Trebox Acorada’, which is owned by Ruth Maybin and Aziz Morabit, while O’Connor’s Karlswood Stables rider Mark Kinsella also picked up prize money when he was runner-up in the Big Tour A competition on Ahmed Tolba’s Irish-bred ‘Waterboy’.
