Congratulations to Lizzie brown and Henton Attorney General for their win at Boekelo. As predicted Show Jumping was a huge shake-up, clear rounds were handsomely rewarded with major moves up the leaderboard. Peter Thomsen and Horseware’s Barny finished second, Mark Todd and Leonidas II third. I must confess that when I sat down to check the final results yesterday afternoon, I was thrilled to see Kenki Sato and Chippieh had finished fourth. I’ve been quite fond of the pair since the London Olympics. With Boekelo a wrap, we’re on to Pau! Allonz-y!

Are you a fan of Michael Jung’s Grafenstolz? I know I am! Grafenstolz has a three year old son named Future Gravitas who has just been licensed as a stallion. He carries more than 50% thoroughbred and anglo-arab blood. Plans are to have Future Gravitas available to British breeders next season. There is the possibility of him becoming available internationally as well, should there prove to be demand. [Future Gravitas Licensed by the Breeders Elite studbook]
