Beezie Maddens topphäst till Jennifer Gates

Jennifer Gates har köpt Beezie Maddens 12-åriga stjärnhingst Darry Lou.

Amerikanska hoppryttaren Beezie Madden hade kontrakt med ägaren Abigail Wexner att behålla hingsten Darry Lou över OS, men med senareläggningen ändrades avtalet. Nu har han sålts till Jennifer Gates och Evergates Stables.

Jennifer skriver på Instagram: ”Jag är så tacksam och peppad över att Darry Lou ansluter till Evergates team. Jag har beundrat den här fantastiska hästen och hans samarbete med Beezie, som är en av mina största idoler inom ridsporten”.

Beezie Madden har tidigare i år (innan coronautbrottet) meddelat att hon från 2021 kommer att ägna sig mer åt att utveckla unga ryttare, även om hon ska fortsätta tävla på toppnivå. Vi har redan kunnat se att hon lägger ut mer instruktionsfilmer i sociala medier:

”I am so grateful and excited to have Darry Lou join the Evergate Stables team. I have admired this wonderful horse and his partnership with Beezie, one of my biggest idols in equestrian sport, for a long time,” remarked Jennifer Gates, President of Evergate Stables. ”While we are saddened not to see Darry and Beezie at the Olympics this year, we are looking forward to getting know him at home while the competition restrictions remain in place, and continuing to give him the love and care he deserves. I want to extend a huge thank you to John and Beezie, the John Madden Sales team, as well as my coach, Harrie Smolders, and Darry Lou’s former owner, Mrs. Abigail Wexner, for making this partnership possible.” ✨ ⁠ ⁠ From John Madden Sales:⁠ It is with mixed emotions that John Madden Sales, Inc and Mrs. Abigail Wexner announce the sale of Darry Lou to Evergate Stables, LLC. While we will be sad to see him go, we are excited to see him join the team at Evergate Stables, LLC. Darry Lou had previously been tried and was under contract for after the 2020 Olympic Games, but the postponement of the Games changed the timeline of the sale.⁠ ⁠ “I have been very lucky to have had Darry Lou in my life and I will always cherish the incredible moments we had together. I can’t thank Abigail Wexner enough for making it all possible. I think Jennifer and Darry Lou will be a great partnership and I look forward to seeing what they can do together. I have no doubt Darry is going to an exceptional home and I wish Jennifer and Harrie the best of luck with him,” commented Beezie Madden. ❤️ ✨
