The Danish equestrian publication Ridehesten reported that the 7-year old Danish warmblood Heslegards Rolex has been sold to Mexican Grand Prix rider Bernadette Pujals.
The dapple grey gelding by Heslegards Rubin x Heslegards Louis will be a successor for Pujals' top horse Vincent, which passed away in May 2010.
Rolex made his international break through as a youngster under Danish rider and trainer Lone Madsen. He competed for Denmark at the 2009 World Young Horse Championships in Verden, where he finished ninth, and at the 7-year old Championships in Falsterbo, where he finished fourth.
"We're really happy that Bernadette will be riding him," Lone Madsen told Ridehesten.com. "We're sure that he'll be in good hands and we look forward to following him in the future."
Trained by Jonny Hilberath, Mexican Bernadette Pujals was the shooting star of the 2006 World Equestrian Games. Aboard the chestnut Hanoverian stallion Vincent she came out of nowhere and finished 10th in the Kur to Music Finals. Vincent died unexpectedly in May.
