Rolf withdraws Casall from the final

Wednesday, 08 August 2012

Rolf and Casall will not start today.Rolf-Göran Bengtsson has withdrawn from the Olympic final today. To WoSJ Swedish team vet Jonas Tornell explains that Casall has been withdrawn from the final after he did not trot up right at this morning’s vet check. During the second part of the team competition on Monday Casall stepped on himself right above the hoof on the outer part of the left front leg, and was not quite right afterwards. Tornell explains that Casall looked fresh again yesterday morning, and also when Rolf rode him this morning but when he trotted up today he was not fine. Casall was thus placed in the holding box, and Rolf was given the chance to show him again. Nevertheless Rolf decided to withdraw Casall and will thus not ride the final today.

It would be an understatement to say that the WoSJ-team feels deeply sorry for Rolf and his team.
