Euro News - Edward Gal Upclose and Personal about Totilas in Dutch NRC Newspaper
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
Edward Gal, who wrote a chapter on his own in the history of dressage with his stellar horse Totilas, has opened up to the Dutch newspaper NRC about the era with Totilas. Gal has been incredibly tight lipped to the press about his feelings about the stallion Totilas since the black got sold in 2010 for a rumoured record price of 11,200,000 euro.

After Gal and Totilas won the 2009 European Championships, the 2010 World Cup Final and 2010 World Equestrian Games with world record scores, owner Cees Visser sold Totilas to German stallion owner Paul Schockemöhle. He then sold a half share and the sport rights to the horse to Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff. Her stepson Matthias Rath got the ride on Totilas. Totilas was retired from sport in 2015 due to injury.
