Denis Lynch and our amazing stallion Cadeau de Muze (f. Nabab de Rêve) took a great victory in the opening class of the CHIO in Rotterdam. Also in the Dutch port city, Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest (f. Nabab de Rêve) ended third with the Dutch team in the Nations Cup.

Bonheiden, Hickstead & Sopot
In Sopot, Camako S Boy JW (f. Bamako de Muze) stepped into the limelight for the first time with a tenth place in the GP2*. Casper de Muze (f. Triomphe de Muze) added another placing to its already well-filled curriculum. With Guy Williams in the saddle, he ended fifth in a Table C-class. Finally, in the GP3* of Bonheiden, Irenice Horta (f.

Flanders Foal Auction
Two foals by Bamako de Muze were auctioned in Bonheiden last weekend at the first Belgian leg of the Flanders Foal Auction of 2018. Berberis Z moved for 10.000 euro to a new owner, for Behemoth MS Z, a happy buyer paid 12.000 euro.
Nic Nac de Muze (f. Norton d’Eole) is one of the future stars of Thiago Ribas da Costa and he proved his worth in Kronenberg. With a fifth place in the final for five- and six-year-olds, the combination confirmed their potential.
A bit closer to home, in Bonheiden, once more a whole bunch of descendants of our stallion jumped excellent. I’m Specialized (f. I’m Special de Muze) and Nikita van de Koekelberg (f. Filou de Muze) did their part in the classes for five-year-olds. Mega Special DC (f. I’m Special de Muze) and Gerboise du Rosiers (f. Nabab de Rêve) did the same in the classes for six-year-olds. Finally, Fantasie VHW Z (f. Filou de Muze) and Gudrun Patteet shined with a victory in the final for seven-year-olds.
