Corianna had been ridden by the Spanish rider during Eric's vacation and were doing very well. He felt she was a good horse for a speed class but not consistent for the 1.60 m classes.
Verdi may be ridden by Tiffany.
Derly is now ridden by a New Zealander but she is still owned by ???
I guess he wanted to start fresh again. I remember Horse Junkies had an article about that... I ll try to find it.
Thanks, everyone. This was the first Nations Cup for Wang Chung m2s and he had 5 faults in the first round and 0 faults in the second round. He jumped super and helped Team Canada to place 2nd.
Eric Lamaze bought 50% of the 2003 stallion from me in January 2012. Even before he made the purchase Eric said he was going to bring the stallion back from 1.50 m. (where he was competing successfully as an 8-year-old) to 1.40 m. and slowly produce him to the top level. We were going to close the deal on the last night of the World Cup Show in Verona in November 2011 but everthing was put on hold when Hickstead tragically died. We waited until January to finalize the deal and that sent the very clear signal that the London Olympics was not the goal for Wang Chung (31 December 2011 was the ownership deadline for the 2012 Olympics).
Last year Wang Chung was Eric's 3rd best horse in the FEI Rolex rankings -- the perfect spot for a young showjumper. He is now Eric's top-ranked horse.
Yes, Morningside Stud is the breeder of Wang Chung m2s.
