The futurity season is in full swing for the reining industry. With many impressive shows featuring record-setting payouts, many reiners are achieving success and climbing milestones at an astounding rate. Among that group is NRHA Hall of Famer Spooks Gotta Whiz—the newest NRHA Six Million Dollar Sire.

After two magnificent stops in Tetouan and Rabat, the Morocco Royal Tour 2023 resumes today (Thursday 19 October) in El Jadida in indoor as part of the Salon du Cheval D'el Jadida.

The second leg of the Morocco Royal Tour closed with the highlight of the event — the Nations Cup — where a young team from Belgium jumped to the highest step of the podium making it the second Belgian victory since the inception of the MRT in 2016. The podium saw Switzerland and France occupy the second and third steps of the podium respectively.

When most picture New York, they think of big city lights and a bustling urban landscape. Few, however, know of the beautiful countryside native to places such as Campbell Hall—the location of Santa Hill Ranch. A training, breeding, and boarding facility, the picturesque Santa Hill Ranch is owned by Robert ‘Bob’ Santagata—the newest NRHA Two Million Dollar Owner.

Italy's Emanuele Gaudiano, one of Morocco Royal Tour's most loyal riders, has won a respectable number of classes in Tetouan over the last ten years (as last Thursday and Friday with Jaja), but he has never won the Grand Prix. This is now the case, thanks to his powerful 10-year-old Belgian stallion Nikolaj de Music.

It's a double two-peat for Simon Delestre who won the same Prix de Dakhla last year and who repeated this victory on Saturday evening in Tetouan with Olga van de Kruishoeve, the mare with whom he triumphed yesterday in the Prix de La Marche Verte. 

Saddle Bronc Rider Isaac Diaz Remains in Contention to Win $1 Million Triple Crown of Rodeo
MILL SPRING, N.C. (October 7, 2023) – After three days of competition at the inaugural Rodeo Carolina, the richest rodeo event east of the Mississippi, the WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance) has announced the final list of athletes who will compete in the Triple Crown of Rodeo Round on October 8 at Tryon International Equestrian Center & Resort in Mill Spring, North Carolina.

The Morocco Royal Tour Prix de la Marche Verte, a qualifier for Sunday’s World Cup Grand Prix, saw world number 10, Simone Delestre of France, take the win riding Olga van de Kruishoeve.
Thirty-nine riders were on the starting grid, but only two of them - including the team bronze medalist at the last European Championships, Austrian Katharina Rhomberg, who unfortunately had a small problem of understanding with Colestus Cambridge - were unable to take part in Sunday's Grand Prix.

The Morocco Royal Tour 2023 is underway. Forty-six competitors in the CSI 1* and seventy-three in the CSI 4* representing eighteen nations and three continents, a  situation which delights Badre Fakir, General Manager of the Fédération Royale Marocaine des Sports Equestres and kingpin of the Morocco Royal Tour: "This twelfth edition is a continuation of the previous ones, with the determination to maintain this well-established position on the international circuit, while constantly striving, year after year, to improve all the components of our three competitions, not only in terms of organization, but also in terms of welcoming international riders, while at the same time giving our national riders the opportunity to express themselves among the world's elite."
