Stephex Stables' fantastic Cornet D'Amour (Cornet Obolensky x Damiani) was retired from the sport during an emotional ceremony at the Brussels Stephex Masters on Saturday night. 

With Daniel Deusser in the saddle, the now 16-year-old gelding won the 2014 World Cup Final in Lyon, France. The pair also took team silver for Germany at the European Championships in Herning in 2013 and in Aachen in 2015, as well as finishing third in the 2016 World Cup Final in Gothenburg. Together, Deusser and Cornet d’Amour have formed an extremely successful partnership and the two can look back at major Grand Prix wins from Paris and Den Bosch as well as World Cup victories from Mechelen and Wellington – to mention some. 

Daniel Deusser and Stephan Conter, CEO of the Stephex Group, both expressed their gratitude to the grey gelding as well as to Cornet D'Amour's grooms Jenny Rågdell Lagerqvist and Sean Lynch who both have played a huge part in his success story.
