Alberto Michan’s Olympic ride Rosalia La Silla has been sold to Qatar. The 11 year old mare by Cassini I x Contender impressed many in London where she ended fifth with her Mexican rider, who she has been with since she was nine. The pair claimed individual and team silver at the Central American Games in 2010, and team bronze at the Pan Am Games last year. This weekend Rosalia is competed by her new rider Bassem Hassan Mohammed in Lausanne, and the two ended fourth in a 1.40 class yesterday.
Chairman LS La Silla (Chapultepec La Silla x Capitol I) is also competing in Lausanne with his new rider Guillaume Hennequin from France. The 9 year old stallion was ridden by Alberto Michan and before him by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson. Both Rosalia La Silla and Chairman LS La Silla belonged to Club Hipico La Silla A.C./Alfonso Romo Garza.
Next week you can look forward to a WoSJ Exclusive with Alberto Michan.
