Henk van de Pol’s ride Spartacus TN (Stakkato x Grannus) has tragically deceased after a colic attack. The 13-year-old stallion has performed very well under the Dutch rider and the two came third in the CSI3* Grand Prix at Outdoor Gelderland only two weeks ago. Before Spartacus TN came to van de Pol he was seen under both Eric van der Vleuten and Marco Kutscher.

According to horses.nl the owners of Spartacus TN, Team Nijhof, states that the stallion has been very popular the last year as his performances have been at a high level and his seamen has been of good quality.

Our thoughts go out to both Team Nijhof and Team van de Pol.
