Urhelia Lutterbach has moved to Darragh Kenny's

31 January 2021

Despite the scattering of his string of horses and Go Easy de Muze’s retirement, Darragh Kenny hasn't had the last word yet, and he now welcomes a star, who is well known in France, to his stables. Urhelia Lutterbach (Helios de la Cour II), a 13-year-old Selle Français mare, has performed at the high level, first with Grégory Cottard, who spotted her at 9 years old, then with Olympic Champion Kévin Staut, who competed her with the aim of marketing her. Her sale was a success as off she flew, after her victory in the 5* Grand Prix of Lyon, to the United States and Kerry McCahill's stables.

The American rider, who was 23 years old at the time, rode Urhelia Lutterbach on the international competition circuit for half of 2020, before entrusting her to the young German rider, René Dittmer. When contacted by Studforlife, Kerry McCahill told us that in the end, she "wanted to give (her) good friend Darragh a chance with their talented mare". So it’s in Florida and at the Winter Equestrian Festival that the new pair will make their first official appearances.
