The gelding has previously been ridden by Christian Ahlmann and they were in the FEI World Breeding Championship Final both when Caruso was five and seven years old. The 15 year old Golddigger (Calvados x Glennridge) is a pretty new ride for Guy Williams. The stallion has previously been ridden by Prince Faisal Al Shalan and Abdullah Sharbatly. Before that Tomas Couve Correa was in the saddle. Eiken Sato has been competing the 12 year old Othello de Lusse (Quercus du Mauryhn x Sonate du Breuil AA) since the end of November.
