The Austrian gun mogul Gaston Glock has acquired a share in the ownership of the 9-year old Dutch warmblood licensed stallion Dream Boy to secure the ride for Hans Peter Minderhoud.
Dream Boy is by Vivaldi x Ferro x Balzflug and was owned by Tim Coomans, Jacques Maree and Stable Brinkman.
Dream Boy was the first licensed offspring by Vivaldi in The Netherlands. Under Gerdine Maree he finished fourth in the 2013 Pavo Cup Finals and 14th in the 2013 World Young Horse Championships finals. He was second in the 2014 KWPN Stallion Competition. At the 2014 World Young Horse Championships he won bronze.
In January 2016 the black stallion moved to Minderhoud's stable and in July they won silver at the 2016 Dutch Small Tour Championships in Ermelo. The pair has yet to make their CDI debut.
Glock has now bought a part in the ownership of the black stallion so he can remain with Hans Peter. "Dream Boy has all the requirements of a Grand Prix horse," said the rider. "He has outstanding talent, incredible ambition and great character. What a joyful day! I am so delighted that he’s going to stay with us."
