Jacqueline Brooks (CAN) and D-Niro (SWB born 1999 by D-Day out of Alitalia 18708 by Napoleon-Herkules, breeder Christina Almström) are invited to contest the 2013 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final to be held from April 24 to 28 in Gothenborg, Sweden.
"I am very excited about coming to Gothenburg," Brooks told Eurodressage. "It has been our goal all year and I have been in Florida to take advantage of training full time with Ashley Holzer in preparation of the final. Goose has really matured in the larger stadium venues and has had his best results at the Olympic Games, Dressage at Devon, the Royal Winter Fair, and the Global show grounds which are all stadium type venues with lots of atmosphere. So I feel confident short of being on an indoor circuit, we have managed the best preparation possible in North America."
