Blue Hors Fifty Cent (Franziskus)
Danish rider Nathalie Zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and the 9-year-old dark bay former breeding stallion Blue Hors Fifty Cent (by Franziskus – Donnerball, breeder: Linda Falensteen & Martin Strande) competed in the international 1-star classes in the German city of Hagen this weekend.
On the first day of the small tour, Thursday, they secured a 3rd place in the CDI1* Prix St. Georges with a score of 70.441%. On Saturday, they made their impressive debut in the CDI1* Intermediare I, clinching a 2nd place with a score of 72.206%. They were closely behind the German rider Frederic Wandres with Quizmaster FRH (by Quasar de Charry – Velten Third), who won the class with 73.206%.
Nathalie purchased “Fifty” back in 2014 at the Danish Warmblood Elite Foal Auction. Subsequently, at Blue Hors, he was prepared and presented for licensing in Herning as a 3-year-old. There, he was licensed as a premium stallion and made available for breeding for the following three years, during which rider Allan Grøn was responsible for his training. In the fall of 2019, “Fifty” moved “home” to Schloss Berleburg in Germany, where Nathalie has been training and preparing him for the art of dressage.
