Stephex and Torrey Pines’ beautiful words to Hickstead

Thursday, 10 November 2011

On their websites, Stephex Stables and Torrey Pines Stable pay tribute to Hickstead. Stephex sold the horse to Eric Lamaze and the Fleischhacker family when he was seven. On their website Stephex tribute Hickstead by saying: “… He knew he was the best, and like all superstars he had a fiery spirit, and that made him fight like a lion in the ring. That is what he did up to the last minute, and his death is that of a warrior. His generous heart failed him at the end of the course, in front of his public, in the arms of his groom and his rider. The little Hickstead will remain a great Champion and a legend in our sport. Thank you Hickstead for all you gave us…”

On Eric Lamaze’s Torrey Pines Stable’s website it is written; “Words cannot express what Hickstead meant to us. A true champion. Thank you to all for your kind words of encouragement and support in our darkest days.”
