Tops Buys from Schwizer

Caretina de Joter, Pius Schwizer’s nuber-one horse for this year’s European Championship has a new owner: Jan Tops. The man behind the Global Champions Tour has bought the horse for his wife Edwina Tops-Alexander, so reported. Pius Schwizer rated the 10-year-old daughter of Caretino as one of the best horses in the world. The pair made second place in the Grand Prix at the LGCT in Shanghai and they finished the Rolex Grand Prix in Aachen in 11th place. Elénore Paschoud, the former owner, explained the sale: “I love horses and I am a passionate amateur. But I don’t run a professional yard.”
