On Saturday January 18th the Irish rider Ronan McGuigan and the Concorde-son Capall Zidane, who was sold via the Dutch Sport Horse Sales, won the Equestrian Realty Grand Prix during CSI2* Wellington. McGuigan went home with a big price because of his victory.

Ireland’s Ronan McGuigan and Capall Zidane were double clear and blazing fast for the win in Saturday night’s $50.000,- Wellington Equestrian Realty Grand Prix CSI2*, the highlight event of week two at the 2014 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival (FTI WEF). Riders representing nine different countries showed under the lights in the International Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC).

Ronan McGuigan about Capall Zidane:”I’ve had him since he was a five-year-old,” he added. “I bought him at the Dutch Sport Horse Sales auction in Weert. I actually never went to try him. I just bought him off a DVD. When I bought him, all of my Irish pals called him the ‘internet horse,’ but I had the last laugh tonight. He has been very consistent since I’ve had him.”
