Offaly's Darragh Kenny has taken victory in today's three-star Grand Prix at Sentower Park in Belgium, just ahead of fellow Irish rider Denis Lynch in second.

Kenny partnered the 10-year-old gelding Carlson to the fastest clear in a 10-horse jump-off, crossing the line in 36.84 to take the winners prize of €7,500.
