U.S. team rider Kasey Perry-Glass has decided to retire her number one Grand Prix horse Gorklintgaards Dublet from international top sport. Dublet is a 17-year old Danish warmblood gelding by Diamond Hit out of La Costa (by Ferro).
The pair's last competition start was the 2019 World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden, in April 2019, fifteen months ago.
The pair's absence from the U.S. Olympic team selection trial and competition circuit in Wellington, Florida, from January till March 2020 already sparked rumours of Dublet no longer being in top shape for Tokyo.
Today, Perry-Glass confirmed those rumours.
"When I look back on our journey I see more than just his accolades and the ones he has given me. I see a horse with a huge heart to please, love, and try his hardest in everything he does. He doesn’t owe me anything and now I owe him the best retirement a horse deserves," Kasey Perry stated. "I have come to the conclusion that purusing another year at the elite level is not in his best interest."
