Great news from Switzerland. Alban Poudret of Cavalier Romand has just received confirmation about the sale of Palloubet d’Halong to Jan Tops. He bought the chestnut gelding for his wife Edwina Tops-Alexander.
In the interview Hansueli Sprunger has spoken about an amount of 11,000,000 euros ($15,000,000 USD), an absolute record. With his daughter Janika Sprunger Palloubet d’Halong was the best horse in the Furusiyya Nations Cups this year. He always jumped double clear. In Aachen he was second in the Grand Prix and at the European Championships in Herning the pair was seventh.
To studforlife.com Sprunger says that Palloubet is still in her stable, but that he is expected to leave. The ten year old gelding by Baloubet du Rouet x Muguet du Manoir has been with the Swiss rider since he was six, and has developed into one of the world’s best horses.
