Alexis Deroubaix’s success horse Timon d’Aure (Mylord Carthago HN x Drakkar des Hutins) has been sold. While it is not yet revealed who the new rider will be, French equestrian media outlets report that Timon d’Aure has left in the direction of Stal Tops in Valkenswaard, Netherlands.  

With Deroubaix in the saddle, the lovely grey 12-year-old gelding has had a great career. The pair competed at the World Equestrian Games in 2018 – where they finished 9th individually, and at the European Championships in 2019 – where they ended 13th overall. This summer, the pair won the CSI5* Grand Prix in Dinard and they were recently second in the CSI5* Grand Prix in Lyon – just to mention some of their many top results throughout the year. In 2018, the two won the CSI4* Grand Prix classes in Bourg-en-Bresse and La Coruna. 

On his Instagram page, Deroubaix writes: “It is with certain emotion that Timon d'Aure leaves the Haras du Plessis. For over four years now, Timon has been an extraordinary companion and a fighter at all the biggest events. A page turns, and I am very grateful to Annick and André Chenu for having kept Timon until now. Best of luck to you champion!”
