The Belgian Sport Horse approved Rhineland stallion Jackpot de Narcimont (Jazz Band Courcelle [SF] - Karrera x Notaris [KWPN]) has been acqured by Ronan Clarke and will be based in the  United States to compete under the saddle of Irish international Shane Sweetnam. The nine-year-old began his career in young-horse classes with Arthur Daffnay – the son of his breeder – with whom he progressed to 1m40 level. Then, last summer, he was acquired by Thibault Lejeune, son of 2010 world champion, Philippe Lejeune. According to Thibault, “Our objective, with the owner, was to create a structure where we can buy quality young horses and prepare them commercially. This is a very competitive horse, very careful, so I hope the new partnership will be able to win many classes.” www.studforlife.com
