The owner and the trainer

 

Joel Blandin, the owner, bought CHRISETI when he was a yearling. He was already the owner of GONDLEEN (CHRISETI’s elder brother) and wished to go on with this family line (by April Night out of L’Allier). Good for him, he is so happy with his horse.

 

Etienne Leenders, the trainer, wondered what to do with this small horse after his fracture of the malleolus at the age of 3. The horse did not come back to the quality he had shown before his accident at Auteuil. A solution had to be found and Etienne had the idea to take him to cross-country racing. Bingo!
