I’m very excited to announce that our pride and joy, Australian Thoroughbred Steady Eddie, has new part owners: Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin of Peterborough, NH have purchased 50% to join George and Gretchen Wintersteen of Unionville, PA in the ownership of this exciting and athletic young horse.
I was lucky enough to meet Denise and Pierre in Aiken earlier this year, where they spend their winters eventing. Both are huge supporters of the sport and it’s a phenomenal feeling, especially after last week’s tragedy, to have new people coming on board, supporting my up-and-coming horses.
Eddie has now been living in the United States for just over a year. He’s come up through the ranks of novice and training and did his first prelim at Waredaca last weekend, and is entered in prelim at Plantation Field Horse Trials this weekend, then he’ll have a nice rest since he’s had a pretty intense start to the year.
For those of you not familiar with Eddie, of “The Eagle” as I call him, I picked him up in Australia from a guy who got him off the racetrack. He has some phenomenal bloodlines and he is closely related to Blyth Tait’s Olympic gold-medalist Ready Teddy.
