On his official Twitter account, Maher states: "We can confirm that my Olympic partner Tripple X III has been sold to Torrey Pines Stable. We wish them every success."


The 12 year old gelding by Namelus R x Cantango is home bred by Maher, and the British rider has brought him up to the highest level of the sport. In 2012 the pair was a part of the British team that won gold at the summer Olympics in London, and they were also on the bronze winning team at the Europeans in Madrid in 2011. Maher and Tripple X III have many big wins together, and last year they won the Longines King George V Gold Cup on home soil at Hickstead as well as the Grand Prix at London Olympia.
