Rolex Grand Prix Calgary goes to AES horse Anton

The Spruce Meadows Summer Festival has started with immediately a CSI4* event. In the GP over 1.60m $400.000 was offered by main sponsor Rolex. Jaime Azcarraga from Mexico grabbed the main part by jumping double clear and finishing 0.07 seconds in front of John Mccrea. Anton was born at the Bruggink family’s breeding farm. Father Marome also jumped at the top level under Gert-Jan Bruggink. Anton was produced up to international level by Bruggink and his wife Pia Luise Aufrecht. Before flying over to Mexico, the Dutch rider Remco Been was in the saddle for a period. Now in Canada he wins his first international GP at ten years old.
