The Belgian Warmblood stallion, Ublesco, owned by Trelawny Farm and his rider Cara Raether have been long listed to the US Show Jumping Team and will be vying for the opportunity to compete at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in KY later this year. The pair recently tied for first place with Todd Minikus/Pavarotti after an exciting jump off in the $55,000 Mary Rena Murphy Grand Prix at the Kentucky Spring Classic May 22nd. We wish them the best of luck as they continue on the tour this summer. Ublesco has been frozen for domestic and EU distribution by Select Breeders Services Inc., MD.
