Bukowski is sold to Korea
Friday, 04 November 2011 22:32

Eurodressage writes:
"Anders Dahl has sold his Grand Prix horse Bukowski to Korea. With Olympic fever raging the Swedish warmblood gelding Bukowski sold as Olympic hopeful to Dong Seon Kim.
Anders trained the bay to Grand Prix level and competed him successfully at international GP level since 2009. Unfortunately, the Danish Equestrian Federation never selected him on their championship team, which left the rider very disappointed.
Bukowski, nicknamed Bam Bam, will continue his career under the 22-year old Dong-Seon Kim, who lives in the States and trains with Korean Jung Kyun Suh, who rode at the 1988 Olympics aboard Reiner Klimke's Pascal."

Ligist (SWB born 2000 by Levantos II out of Chamina (5) 22132 by Robin Z-Hertigen, breeder Lars Erik Fryberg) and Reed Kessler won 1.50!

Source writes:
"Beginning the evening session, Reed Kessler, of Armonk, NY, rode Ligist to victory in tonight's $31,000 International Open Jumper 1.50m class held just before the Puissance. In a faults converted format, Kessler and Ligist jumped clear and completed the course in 54.220 seconds.
Kessler beat out Nick Dello Joio and Geledimar Z, owned by Wembley Farms Inc., who finished in 55.220 seconds. Third place went to Richie Moloney and Equinimity LLC's Alsvid with their time of 55.420 seconds.
Kessler is just seventeen years old and showed Ligist (a.k.a. Goose), an eleven-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding by Levantos II, in the junior jumpers at last year's WIHS. The pair moved up to competing at the international level this year and showed in Europe over the summer.
"It has been a big step up," Kessler acknowledged. "We only got Goose as a junior jumper and that is what everyone thought he could do, but I always thought there was a little bit more in him. Every time we move him up he is great, so hopefully we will keep on moving up."
Speaking about her ride tonight, Kessler stated, "I haven't had the best week, but my horses have jumped great and I just really wanted to go out with a bang. I knew the course had been tough and there were not a whole lot of clears, but I knew Nick was pretty quick, so I just tried to make some good turns and he jumped super."
