Nippon D’Elle Retired after Failed Comeback

Things went different than they had been planned: At the event in Basel this weekend 16-year-old French stallion Nippon d’Elle by Scheriff d’Elle was supposed to make his comeback after a year’s break. However, Roger-Yves Bost and the stallion got eliminated. Now the owners have decided that Nippon d’Elle will be retired from the sport and start his breeding career. Bosty and the Selle Francais achieved some international successes, among them the victories in the Grand Prix of Fontainebleau and the Nations Cup in Aachen.
