Monday, 27 October 2014

Upperclass - here seen at Spruce Meadows with William Whitaker in the saddle. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Carlene and Andy Ziegler's Artisan Farms LLC has purchased William Whitaker's Upperclass. Whitaker has enjoyed great success with the 13 year old KWPN gelding by Concorde x Indoctro over the last years. The pair won the 1.60 Tourmaline Oil Cup at Spruce Meadows in September this year, and was also placed second in the 1.55 Longines Cup of the City of Barcelona in the middle of October. The pair also recorded wins in Le Touquet, St. Gallen, Bethune, Bolesworth, Dinard and Hickstead during 2014.

"Upperclass has been an amazing horse for me," William comments to World of Showjumping. "My girlfriend Elisabeth has owned him since he was 5 years old and he is now 13, so he has been a part of our lives for a few years now. This year especially he has had some fantastic results at some of the biggest shows in the world. I will miss him a lot, but I am pleased he is going to a very good new home and I wish them the best of luck with him."

Upperclass will now be ridden by Andy Ziegler of the United States.
