An embryo of Big Star and Spirit T up for auction

The least one can say is that this foal will have a prestigious pedigree!

From October 21-24, an embryo from Big Star (Quick Star x Nimmerdor) and Spirit T (Tornado x Carnaval Drum) will be put up for sale by the Zangersheide stud farm in Belgium. Gold medalist at the Rio Olympics with his British rider Nick Skelton, the vigorous bay Big Star was crossed with the 16-year-old mare which was in the reserve spot in Brazil.

With Jessica Mendoza, Spirit T, like Big Star, contributed to the second place of Great Britain in the Nations Cup in Barcelona in 2016. And with parents like these, there is no doubt that this embryo should attract a lot of interest!
