Friday Video from SmartPak: Meet Fred Scala, Ireland’s Next Big Thing



When Ireland released their Tokyo eventing long list, it had plenty of names on it that you likely already know well — Sam Watson, for example. and Cathal Daniels, and Sarah Ennis, all titans of the sport and household names to fans. But if you didn’t immediately recognise the name of British-based Fred Scala, that’s only because he’s been quietly putting in the hard graft behind the scenes in preparation for his time in the spotlight — and we’d be fairly confident that that moment is on its way very soon.

Today’s video is such an interesting deep dive into Fred’s career, his horses, and his journey so far that we reckon you’ll be fully on board Team Scala after you watch it — and then you can enjoy OG fan status when his medal-winning moment comes to fruition.
