Canada’s Eric Lamaze has announced that he plans to retire his success-mare Fine Lady 5 (Forsyth FRH x Drosselklang II) during CHI Geneva in December 2021. 

Talking with the press from the Spruce Meadows 'Masters' tournament, Lamaze spoke about the now 18-year-old mare who will be doing her last appearance at the venue after multiple victories there throughout her incredible career. "She is healthy, she’s sound, but she is also 18 (...)," Lamaze said. "I would like to finish her career in the Rolex Grand Prix at Geneva in December. I’m the only Canadian to have won the Rolex Top 10 Final and I did it in Geneva with that little mare.”

With Lamaze in the saddle, Fine Lady 5 has had an extraordinary career. The two took the individual bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016, won the Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final in Geneva in 2016, and have countless of victories on their record from venues such as Aachen, Antwerp, Barcelona, La Baule, Mexico City, Spruce Meadows, Toronto, Valkenswaard and Wellington.

Before Lamaze took over the reins in the spring of 2014, Fine Lady 5 had already been successful with Germany's Holger Wulschner in the saddle.
