Nanna Merrald Rasmussen and Blue Hors Zack

Presence and talent galore

The Danish Olympic pair consisting of the breeding stallion Blue Hors Zack (by Rousseau/Jazz, breeder: Bas Wilschut) and Blue Hors elite rider Nanna Merrald Rasmussen scored a wild 76.724% and was at the front of the class for a long time.

The 18-year-old Blue Hors Zack, who is more current than ever before, showed high class and plenty of energy during today’s Grand Prix – and was of course applauded by an enthusiastic audience that had brought both handkerchiefs for their eyes and Danish flags to fly for the Danish riders and horses!

A breeding stallion at the absolute top

As a breeding stallion, he also has his eligibility in the world championship class, as he is the sire of 3 of his competitors: The 14-year-old Zigzag by Blue Hors Zack – Blue Hors Don Schufro (bred by Astrid and Bjarne Risvig), ridden by Gilles Ngovan/Schweiz , the former Blue Hors sales horse 12-year-old Grevens Zorro by Blue Hors Zack – Blue Hors Hertug (bred by Svend Skov Poulsen and Dorit Greve), ridden by Anna Tallberg/Finland and the 14-year-old Zidane by Blue Hors Zack – Ladoga (bred by Steffen Sunesen), ridden by Gretha Ferreira/South Africa

All while the competitions look very well for Denmark, whose other pair in the fire was Carina Cassøe Krüth and Heiline’s Danciera, who scored a great 76.863%
