Double H Farm buys Carlos VHP Z for Mclain Ward

17 / 02 / 2014

Mclain Ward will again ride for Double H Farm from railway giant Hunter Harrisson. They had already worked together from 2003 to 2006 with horses such as Goldika, Sapphire, Quickstar II Z and Oasis. Now Double H Farm bought Carlos VHP Z (Chellano) for the two-fold Olympic champion. The new partnership came to life after Double H Farm dropped Rodrigo Pessoa last year as a rider and Mclain Ward lost his top horses Antares and Super Trooper from his pupil Katie Dinan to her new trainer Beat Mandli. The objective of buying Carlos VHP Z (Chellano Z) is to keep Mclain Ward, currently holding place 19, in the top of the world ranking. They will get acquainted with each other in Florida, but they will also come over to Europe this summer. Under his former rider Nick Dello Joio Carlos VHP Z finished third in a CSI2* GP in Wellington. He had only just been bought by the Dello Joio family, which had taken him over from Emilie Martinsen. The success had started in Belgium, of course, where Carlos VHP Z and Nicola Philippaerts became European champion Young Riders and he won the GPs of Falsterbo and Lissabon. Also the half-brother of Carlos, namely DON VHP Z (Diamant de Semilly) is doing well at a high level. Recently he finished third in Wellington in a 1.50m class under Marcus Beerbaum.
