In the FEI database the 9-year-old gelding has a new owner, found in Cian O'Connor his Coolmore Stud. When O'Connor will take over the reins of the SF-gelding, is yet unknown.
Together with Bertram Allen the gelding also won last year's CSI2* Grand Prix in Knokke. At the Longines Global Champions Tour 1.55m in Valkenswaard they placed second.
