The mare is ten this year and has bloodlines to dream of.  She is by the incredible ‘Chacco-Blue’ with the dam sire,  ‘Indoctro’ and she just oozes quality and a is great example of the horses that are owned by Ashford Farm & Jos Lansink Horses.  She has already had great results here at the Tour with a second place in the 1.50m, Medium Tour GP, earlier on the 13th of this month.

The second place on the podium was claimed double Olympic rider, Roger Yves Bost (FRA), fondly know as ‘Bosty’.  Bosty was part of the French Team that won the Rio Olympics and has competed in numerous World Equestrian Games and World Cup Finals, his current world ranking is 107.  Today he was riding ‘Cassius Clay VDV Z’  (Calvino Z) , and took second place in 29.43s fending off a German whitewash at the top of the leaderboard.  Bronze honors was earned by Jens Baackmann (GER) with ‘Nomanee’ and in fourth was Laura Klaphake (GER) with ‘Davenport VDL’.  Fifth place was taken by Colombian rider Carlos López Lizarazo (COL) with the lovely ‘Admara 2’.
