A new star for Cian O'Connor

28 May 2021Author : Julien Counet

The Belgian 7-year-old runner-up, who was ridden by Dieter Vermeiren at Sentower Park last year, is making a big impression. Etoile vh Neerheide Z (Emerald van't Ruytershof x Quannan R) is moving to Ireland to be ridden by Ireland’s Cian O'Connor. He became Zangersheide-approved in 2018, and comes from a beautiful dam line as his granddam, Brillante (Heureka de la Loge), has performed internationally under the saddle of Harrie Smolders and is a full sister to the international performer Averal, and maternal half-sister to the well-performed Obourg.

The objective is clear: to see the Irishman and his new partner in Paris in 2024 for the Olympic Games!
