Sandro Boy won the World Cup final in 2006 together with Ehning, and has several grand prix victories – including victories from Zürich, Frankfurt, London, Lyon and Hannover. Altogether the stallion has won a total of 1.2 million Euros in prize money.

“It has been a dream to ride him, and I’m happy he’s still fit and that I will be able to see him in the fields in the future,” Marcus said.
