Tokyo bound

Following the withdrawal of Piggy March and Brookfield Inocent from the position of travelling reserve to the British Olympic team, Ros and Allstar B received the call up. 

Allstar B travelled by road to Liege yesterday with Ballaghmor Class, Toledo de Kerser and London 52, the horses flying on to Tokyo today. Ros flies out tomorrow with Oliver, Tom and Laura.

Ros said: “I couldn’t be prouder of  Allstar B, and all of the people who have been behind me. I have worked really hard to be in the best shape possible for this, and so to be going is a huge honour.

“I am, of course, so disappointed for Piggy and all of her connections. She is one of my biggest inspirations, one of the absolute best, and an all round amazing person who is always on the end of the phone to pick us all up when things aren’t going well. I will do my best to fit in to her very big shoes.”
