We always pay attention to the very best Prinsjesdag-horses performing at the highest level, but the new and upcoming group of Prinsjesdag-horses are highly interesting as well. And these ‘Prinsjesdag-youngsters’ are doing excellent lately!
The only 6-year-old Get Off (Numero Uno x Indoctro – full-brother of Take Off) is already competing at international level with Ireland’s jockey Trevor Breen. Lately he has been performing outstandingly in the young horse competitions in Oliva. The only 5-year-old Creswell LVP Z (Casall x Quantum) is also doing great in Oliva. Ridden by Belgium’s Lieven Devos, Creswell delivered many clear rounds in the 5-year-old classes.
Meanwhile in Drachten, the now 8-year-olds VDL Groep Elexia and Mr. Europe are showing off as well. Yesterday, in the class for 7- and 8-year-old showjumpers, VDL Groep Elexia (Calvaro Z x Alexis Z) and top rider Leopold van Asten finished second. Last week, Mr. Europe (Mr. Blue x Cassin I) and Marc Houtzager performed well by finishing 7th in the 1.40m class.
