Absent from competition arenas in recent weeks, the sale of 12-year-old Selle Français stallion Quickly of Kreisker (Diamant de Semilly – Briseis d’Helby x Laudanum xx) at the end of 2012 to the King of the Morocco, Mohammed VI, has apparently been questioned. His former owner Liliane Fromer and broker Bruno Souloumiac, with whom the stallion was stationed while being ridden by Benjamin Robert, have been summoned to appear in court by the Carlo family, owners of Stall Karolina stables. A complaint been lodged by the plaintiffs claims that they were only alerted to the sale of Quickly de Kreisker in the media, when a contract was signed between the three parties, making Stall Karolina responsible for competition expenses of the stallion for a fixed period and for an amount set at 900,000 euros. Bred by Guillaume Ansquer, Quickly de Kreisker has been ridden since 2012 by Abdelkebir Ouaddar (55), representing Morocco. The pair finished 13th at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Caen, and 11th that same year in the World Cup Final in Lyon. Coached by Marcel Rozier, Ouaddar was Morocco’s flag bearer for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Their most recent results came in March, on the Middle East Tour in Qatar. It is now the the courts that will shed further light on this case. - studforlife.com
