The latest news from Sterrehof stud
Marc in front with all three of the horses
Marc had a good start of the World Cup event in Verona. During the opening day we saw him back in every prize giving ceremony. In the two phases opening class at 1.45m there was a seventh spot for Sterrehof’s Bylou. After that Marc rode the only 8 years old Edinus, who we have in joint ownership with the Houtzager-Kayser stable, towards a neat eighth place in a 1.50m class against the clock. In the evening it was our ace Sterrehof’s Calimero who put the icing on the cake by realising a super fifth place in the main class of the day, a 1.55m with a jump-off.
On Saturday the success continued. Bylou lived up to her reputation and speeded up towards a third place in a 1.45m class against the clock. Regretfully it was the last big success at this show. Edinus gained again experience but was not able to stay clear. The same we can say about Calimero during his first start in a world cup, which was fantastically won by the way by Marc’s countryman Maikel van der Vleuten and Verdi. So we ended this five star indoor show in Italy with mixed feelings but not empty handed!
