Marc Dilasser bids farewell to two of his assets

07 January 2021

The Selle Français Vital Chance*de la Roque (Diamant de Semilly) began his international career with Michel and Adeline Hécart before competing under the saddles of Julien Epaillard and Guillaume Batillat. Since 2019, the bay has appeared in competition grounds with the French rider Marc Dilasser. Today sees him take a new start in Florida with the Irish rider, Conor Swail. Conor Swail has just acquired the bay while Adeline Hécart remains the co-owner. "It's a chance for me to cross paths with a horse that took me to the height of stars, right up to the World Cup in Bordeaux!", declared the Norman rider in a press release. Indeed, the duo has had a number of placings such as a second place in a 1.50m event in the CSI4* in Saint Lô, a sixth place in the CSI3* Grand Prix in Vejer de la Frontera and a clear round in the Nations Cup of the CSIO3* on the same track last November.

Corona Z (Caretano Z) also crosses the Atlantic to join his new rider in Mexico. After being ridden by Marc Dilasser for nearly three years, the Zangersheide mare took second place on the podium at the CSI2* Grand Prix in St. Tropez this fall. "This mare so close to my heart is leaving us but this only reinforces the strong partnership we shared for many years with E2K Horses," concluded the Frenchman.
