Anglos – Eventing in 2013

Anglos are running on both coasts this season, giving us lots to cheer for!

Halimey Go is an Anglo-Arabian sired Trakehner stallion (29.91% Arabian) ridden by Michael Pollard and owned by the Halimey Go Syndicate, placed 1st at Rocking Horse in Preliminary, a 1st at Ocala Winter Horse Trials in Training and a 14th in Preliminary at Poplar Place. He is sired by Askar AA, who competed in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

Reisling De Buissy is a French-bred Anglo-Arabian (27.18%) ridden by Will Faudree and owned by Sterling Silver Stable won Intermediate at Pine Top Advanced after a 2nd in Preliminary at Pine Top Winter. Last weekend at Southern Pines they finished 8th in Intermediate. His sire is Oberon du Moulin, a winning Grand Prix jumper, and his dam is O Vive.

Lauren Kieffer’s Anglo-Arabian Vermiculus (Serazim x Wake Me Gently) earned a 5th in his first Preliminary at Rocking Horse after a 4th and 6th in Training in February.

The last event for March in Florida was Rocking Horse HT, where both Halimey Go and Vermiculus went head to head in Open Preliminary. They were tied for second place after dressage with a 26.5, both went double clear in stadium and they were tied for first! Cross country usually separates ties, but they both went double clear again! Halimey got the win as he was 3 seconds closer to the optimum time.

At Galway Downs International, the 18-year-old homebred Anglo Arabian Oz Poof of Purchase (Sidi of Magic x Regalbatim), ridden by Katherine Groesbeck, held the lead at their first Advanced after dressage and cross country, but dropped to 4th after a few rails in stadium. Poof is the oldest of 3 full siblings including Oz The Tin Man that Katherine rode to victory in the CIC2* at Galway last March.

Entries closed for Rolex KY 3-Day Event and there is at least one Arabian-bred entered. Houston is sired by Thoroughbred Reputed Testamony and out of a 3rd generation Anglo-Arabian, Amnesty, from Ann McKay’s amazing breeding program. Her sire was the Anglo Quartermaster (Yankee Lad {TB} x Jane Morganroth {AA}) and her dam the Anglo Quest (Gadd John Dee {AA} x ReRegret {TB}).
Houston is owned and ridden by Daniel Clasing of White Hall, MD who grew up riding Ann’s homebred Arabians. We wish them the best of luck!
