Bacardi VDL back to competition

25 October 2021

Having been off the international scene for more than two years, Bacardi VDL will make his return to competition at the Oliva Autumn Tour in the coming weeks, as announced by Edwina Tops Alexander. Purchased by Tops Stables in January 2019, this son of Corland has only competed five times under his new rider. Since then, he had been removed from the competition grounds and offered for breeding.

This stallion had been vice-World Champion in the 7 year old category with Jos Lansink before exploding at the top level with the Swiss rider Janika Sprunger. A few days before he was bought by the businessman Tops, he won the 5* Grand Prix in Dubai with the Swiss rider and placed third in Sharjah.
