Blue Hors Matine Withdrawn From World Cup Dressage Final

Blue Hors Matine, the 2006 World Championship Grand Prix Freestyle silver medalist, has been withdrawn by Danish rider Andreas Helgstrand and will not compete in the Rolex FEI World Cup Final which begins April 19, 2007 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV.

Because of a minor injury to the horseís left front leg sustained while unloading her from the van, Helgstrand, the rider of the Danish Warmblood mare, decided that it was in the best interest of the horse to withdraw.

"The veterinarian said that she might recover by tomorrow [Thursday] and be able to compete, but we didnít want to take any chances," said Helgstrand. "It is very sad because I thought we had a chance to do well, but this can be my top horse for a long time and I am not prepared to take any risks with her."

The first competition of the Rolex FEI World Cup Grand Prix Dressage Final gets under way on Thursday afternoon and the evening session showcases the Rolex FEI World Cup Show Jumping Final I.
