Larkhill Cruiser to Al Sharbatly

Monday, 23 May 2011

Larkhill Cruiser will in the future be ridden by Abdullah Al Sharbatly - here with Cian in La Baule. Photo by C. Bricot/FEI.Cian O’Connor has sold one of his top horses Larkhill Cruiser (Cruising x Crosstown Dancer) to the Saudi Arabian rider Abdullah Al Sharbatly. The Irish bred gelding was on Ireland’s winning team in the Top League in La Baule, France, last weekend and has done extremely well under O’Connor since joining his string of horses in December last year. Before Larkhill Cruiser came to Cian he was produced successfully under John Floody in Ireland.

Now the 10 year old chestnut will be seen under the silver medalist from last years WEG, and yet another good horse will join the Saudi Arabian team – Katie McVean’s Delphi was also recently sold to the Saudi Arabian Equestrian Federation and will in the future be ridden by Kamal Bahamdan.

To WoSJ Cian gives the following comment on the sale; "Larkhill Cruiser has been a wonderful horse for both me and his previous rider John Floody. I have no doubt that Abdullah will have huge success with "Joey" and keep the Irish Flag flying around the world."
