It’s confirmed. A record-breaking sale reputedly in the  €10-12 million range has been completed by Athina Onassis for the purchase of Greg Broderick’s MHS Going Global (Quidam Junior - Gowran Lady x Cavalier Royal). The 10-year-old gelding – a paternal grandson of Quidam de Revel, maternal great-grandson of the legendary Cor de la Bryère – who competed with Broderick at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, has suddenly become one of the most expensive showjumpers in the world. Broderick, who owned 10 percent of the horse jointly with Canadian breeder Lee Kruger, had said Going Global was “the horse of a lifetime”, but said it was a logical decision at this time to sell him at the height of his career. The pair have celebrated numerous wins at major events, none more so than a double clear round in the Nations’ Cup at Dublin Horse Show in 2015 to secure the win for Ireland. MHS Going Global was bred in Ireland by Tom Brennan's Mill House Stud, Gowran, Co. Kilkenny.  Photo: Greg Broderick riding MHS Going Global in Dublin 2016 (Photo: FEI/Tony Parkes)
