Finnish Grand Prix rider Elisabet Ehrnrooth has secured a new Grand Prix hopeful for the future, Petra Stroetmann's 7-year old Daytona. 

Daytano is a 2013 born Hanoverian mare by Dante Weltino out of Sillia (by Samarant x  Don Frederico). She is bred by Judith Wertheimer.

Daytona and Stroetmann

Owned and trained by German professional rider Petra Stroetmann, Daytona made her show debut as a 4-year old in 2017.

The pair competed mainly at local shows in Albersloh, Ibbenbüren, Rhede. In 2018, when the mare was 5 years old, she was already being shown at L and M-level dressage. In 2020 she made the transition to S-level at the K+K Cup in Munster in January. Their last show was the local event in Rhede on 20 June 2020.

Sold to Finland

The black mare has now been sold to the 53-year old Elisabet "Ettan" Ehrnrooth, who is a Finnish Olympian.

Ehrnrooth competed at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney on Harald, at the 2002 World Equestrian Games and 2003 European Championships on Angard. Her most recent Grand Prix horses were Wizard II (by Wetano x Allegretto), whom she showed at the 2017 European Championships, and her current GP ride Bogelys La-Ro (by Lorentin II x Resident). She trains with Janne Bergh. 

Ehrnrooth also served as chef d'equipe for Finland at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Caen. 

Stroetmann is known as a producer and serial seller of Grand Prix talent. From her stables came horses such as Fidelio van het Bloemenhof (Anders Dahl), Weinzauber (Robert Acs), Dominion (Shelly Francis), Robin Hood (Pierluigi Sangiorgi), Ikaros (David Blake), Fiffikus (Fausto Puccini), Floratina (Lindsay Kellock), exquis Ridenburgh’s Alabama (Jeanine Fiechter), Inspire (Kelly Ann Klenk), as well as Cortino B, Giselle, and Fancy Free.
