The Blue Frontier, 14year old Irish Gelding (New Frontier x Blue Henry), previously ridden by Sandra Auffarth (Germany) has joined Andrew Hoy´s team of top horses.
“I am delighted that Blue will join Andrew´s team – to me Andrew is a complete “horseman” and has got such a wonderful feeling for each individual horse, I couldn´t have wished for anyone better to take over the reins”, says Auffarth. “After taking on Ispo at the end of last year I had to realize that there are only so many hours in a day and that I wasn´t able to give each of my horses the time needed. This is why Blue´s owner, Nikolaus Prinz von Croy, and I made the common decision to sell him.”
The Blue Frontier has been acquired by Swiss Stud “Hasenacher”, owned by International Racing Personality Barbara Keller. Alongside her ambitious racing career Ms. Keller is President of Charity Organisation “Right To Play” Switzerland, for whom Andrew Hoy and the 7-year old Irish Gelding “Right To Play´s Jack Sparrow” are already acting as Athlete Ambassadors.
“Barbara is such a wonderful support to my team and I feel honoured and am very thankful to be taking on the ride on The Blue Frontier for her”, stated Hoy. “The Blue Frontier and I got on very well from the first time I rode him at Sandra´s yard and I am so much looking forward to our common future. He is
a real character and I can´t wait for our first outing!”
