Three years after it was sold to Kate Dinan and her departure from the United States, Sydney-en-Prince returned to French soil. Haras d’Elle, who will be taking over the management of her breeding career, announced her return on Facebook. The daughter of Baloubet du Rouet won the gold for the team under Roger-Yves Bost at the Games in Rio and then went to the Dinan Stables.
At the age of fifteen, Sydney on Prince finally finished the sport. Katie Dinan said the mare got hurt in 2020: “After two years of trying to get Sydney back in the show jumping circuit, we decided to retire her so she could enjoy the pasture and hopefully be a mom one day. I wish we had spent more time in the ring together. It was an honor for me. To compete with this star. We will miss her in the stable, but are excited about this collaboration with Haras d’Elle. The Pignolet family and I met when I bought the Athos d’Elle and also because Scherif d’Elle is the father of one of my horses, Nougat du Vallet. I hope Sydney enjoys her retirement in her homeland and to be able to visit her and her foals.”
When seven-year-old Marius Hoschen van Harras de Princess came to Roger Eve Post. The duo had many successes, culminating in winning the gold medal at the Games in Rio. In 2018, Katie Dinan became the owner of the mare. In America, Sydney ran 1.45 meters and in Wellington, March 2020, the duo took part in their last competition. Ongoing injury ended Sydney’s sporting career. Returning to France, she began to breed.
Sydney has already produced a stallion by Diamant de Sémilly, a Friday Treize approved by Selle Français. The stallion reached the finals at the age of four, five and six in the French Junior Championships.
