The Talbot Hotel Group was proud sponsor of the Speed Derby International Competition which took place at the 2013 Dublin Horse Show. This prestigious event was won by French speed specialist Roger Yves Bost on Castleforbes Vivaldo van Het.  However the Irish riders featured prominently in the remainder of the placings, with seven Irish riders finishing in the top eight. Promising young Wexford rider Bertram Allen finished third in the placings narrowly missing out on what would have been a very popular win.
