Artisan Farms LLC has acquired Tripple X III from Canadian Olympic gold medalist Eric Lamaze. Fellow Canadian Tiffany Foster will ride the stallion through 2014.

Lamaze’s Torrey Pines Stable purchased Tripple X III from Ben Maher in April. With Maher, the 12-year-old Anglo European stallion (Namelus R—Calve Z, Cantango) was part of the gold medal team for Great Britain at the 2012 London Olympic Games. He was sold as result of a lawsuit between Maher and the horse’s previous part owners, Mike and Emma Phillips.

Under Lamaze’s ownership, Tripple X III competed with Olympian Tiffany Foster at the CSI*** Le Touquet (France) and in the CSIO***** Rome. At the CSI***** Spruce Meadows National tournament, held June 4-8 in Calgary, Foster and Tripple X III finished second to Lamaze and Artisan Farms LLC’s Powerplay in the $85,000 1.55-meter Spectra Energy Cup on June 5.

“When I purchased the horse, it was with the intention to resell,” said Lamaze, of Schomberg, Ontario.  “After seeing the horse compete, Andy and Carlene [Ziegler] decided they would like to purchase Tripple X and keep him as part of the Artisan Farms family.”

Foster, 29, will continue competing Tripple X III through the rest of the season.
