Stephex Stables has announced that their rider Eiken Sato has decided to leave their stables. Family reasons are behind Sato's decision to quit his job and leave Europe, and head back to his home country Japan. "It's with deep regrets that we lose such a talented rider. The Stephex Group wishes him the best for the future," sounds the statement from Stephex.
Sato, 28 years old, has had huge success whilst flying the Stephex colors – having top results at five star Grand Prix level as well as earning a great reputation for producing youngsters and bringing them up the classes to introduce them to the top sport. Sato has also been well known for his big and friendly smile, and will for sure be missed on the European circuit by his showjumping colleagues.
