Katie Dinan’s 15-year-old Selle Francais gelding Nougat du Vallet (Scherif D’Elle—Camee Du Vallet, Saphir D’Elle) has staked his claim as his barn’s top horse since he guided Dinan to victory in one of their first grand prix classes together, the $50,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix, during the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival (Fla.).
