At the end of the second Olympic eventing dressage day in Rio 2016, one of the few stallions in the field is in the lead. The Brandenburg-bred Chilli Morning (Phantomic - Koralle x Kolibre) carried Great Britain’s William Fox-Pitt to a 37.00 point ride, just 0.60 ahead of Australia’s Christopher Burton with Santano II (2007: Sandro Hit - Bona Dea II x Brentano II), bred by Annie Wöste, and Frenchman Mathieu Lemoine riding Bart L (2006: United - Parisma x Gribaldi), bred by H. Litjens. In the team competition, Germany currently lead (122.00), France second (122.20) and Australia third (126.40). It’s a remarkable individual result for Fox-Pitt, who was in a coma for several weeks following a fall at the 2015 eventing World Breeding Championships for Young Horses in Le Lion d’Angers last October.
