WC Hannover: horse Boyd Exell not passed-WC starts at 23.05 hrs.

One of the horses of the Australian four-in-hand driver Boyd Exell did not pass the horse inspection this afternoon at the first FEI World Cup competition in Hannover.

Boyd’s 12 year old gelding Pascal was declared not fit to compete by the veterinarians. Luckily, the Orlov trotter is Exell’s spare horse so the composition of his team will remain unchanged.
