Miss Blue-Saint Blue Farm Mystic Rose triumphs in a five-star Grand Prix in Aachen, while Juan Manuel Bolaños Barrios rides Zilouet Mystic Rose to individual championship gold at the 2023 Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador.
Located in the countryside outside São Paulo, Brazil, Mystic Rose Horses has seen two of its mares stand out in two important international events: the CSI5* held in Aachen, Germany, and also at the 24th Central American and Caribbean Games, in Central America.
Brazilian rider Yuri Mansur and Brazilian Sport mare Miss Blue-Saint Blue Farm Mystic Rose triumphed in great style during the 1m60 five-star Turkish Airlines Prize of Europe, during the prestigious Aachen show. Considered one of the annual highlights of the world’s equestrian calendar, the Brazilian pair enchanted the German audience in the opening Grand Prix by conquering the top-class field. Fifty-four pairs took up the challenge, of which only eight finished the first round flawlessly, and seven lined up over a thrilling jump-off course designed by the world-renowned Frank Rothenberger. Yuri and Mystic Rose, a distinguished nine-year-old BH mare – who carries Chacco-Blue and Magnolia Mystic Rose’s bloodline, and is owned by Thalita Olsen de Almeida – were crowned as champions for zeroing the course in 42:27 seconds. They banked a purse of €50,000, out of the €202,000 prize money distributed for this class.
The partnership between Mansur and Miss Blue-Saint Blue Farm has been remarkably accomplished in 2023. Besides conquering the international five-star Global Champions Tour in the United States, they were second in the GCT in Mexico. Moreover, they were honored with two third-place finishes, including the Hamburg international five-star, as well as the five star in Basel, Switzerland. Mansur has been pre-listed to represent Brazil in the 2023 Pan American Games and is one step closer to a coveted spot for Paris 2024... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
