17-year-old Uptown into Retirement

The Odermus R son Uptown Boy, with whom Swiss Janika Sprunger was successful for many years, has been retired. The 17-year-old KWPN gelding was ridden by Sprunger for ten years. The last event the pair attended was in Lier, Belgium last December.  “Enough is enough,” the rider stated on her Facebook page and wished her “Joey” a happy retirement. Janika Sprunger and Uptown Boy achieved numerous international placements in five-star competitions at World Cup and Global Tour events as well as Nations Cups.
