FLOODY GOES ON THE JAG
John Floody has entered in to a sponsorship deal with Jaguar Equestrian, through their distributors in Ireland, Darragh Equestrian Solutions. No stranger to success he partnered Larkhill Cruiser and Ashbourne to clinch both the Chippison Spring Tour and the Autumn Grand Prix series last year.
Larkhill Cruiser has gone on to be very successfully campaigned by Cian O’Connor this year having being produced by John. He also produced some very impressive results last season having being placed in every single Premier Grand Prix on the circuit and winning the Premier in Balmoral. Other successes included winning the international Grand Prix at Tattersalls and both the Derby and the Premier Grand Prix at Cavan.
In addition to those accolades he campaigned well in the Leinster Development League on a number of horses, some of which he hopes to graduate over the next few seasons. He has some nice horses in tow for this coming season and has already claimed two legs of the Chippison Spring Tour so far with PMR Rehy Irish All Star, at the opening round in Kildare and more recently, virtually on home turf, at Broadmeadows, riding PMR Cabellero. Both horses are owned by Paula Rafter.Parallel to these events he has agreed the sponsorship deal with Jaguar Equestrian for the coming season, brokered by Darragh Equestrian.

“Just in case there was any doubt about the safety of KEP Italia Helmets just look at the protection Robbie Power got at Leopardstown last Saturday when he not only sustained a crashing fall but survived a massive kick to the head. No concussion! Says it all really. KEP Italia Helmets are the best head protection money can buy.”
