Irish riders made a strong start on the opening day of the 2022 Dublin Horse Show, winning all three of the international competitions on offer at the RDS arena in Ballsbridge.

Sligo’s Richard Howley guided Fame to victory in the Minerva Stakes sponsored by Manton Grange Stables. Howley finished just over a second ahead of Britain’s William Whitaker and Jalellah OL, while Egypt’s Nayel Nassar took third place with El Conde.

Thursday’s action at the RDS will include the Speed Derby and the Anglesea Stakes, while all eyes will be on Irish team manager Michael Blake, who on Thursday evening is set to name his four horses and riders for Friday’s Aga Khan.
