Stats: age 28, Sydney, Australia.
Sandhills Tiger: b. g., 16.1 hands, 15 years, Australian-bred Thoroughbred (Danzero—Sparkling), owned by Alannah Cargill.
This pair placed fourth in the 2008 Sydney CCI*** (Australia), then retired at the Adelaide CCI**** (Australia) that same year. Sandhills Tiger took 2009 off to recover from an injury, then completed two CIC*s and a CNC*** in 2010.
Jimmy’s Prediction: I have not seen this pair compete. Given the track record of Australians coming to Rolex, I expect his dressage to be a work in progress, followed by a typical Aussie blazing cross-country round.
