Top British-breds: Tamarillo
24th May, 2004
William Fox-Pitts top ride, Tamarillo, proved himself once and for all in the mud at Badminton this year. The 12-year-old gelding came back from a long six-months on the sidelines to prove that Arabs arent just suited to desert conditions.
He has shown sparks of exceptional quality in the past, coming second at Badminton in 2002 and second at Blenheim in 2000, when he was a mere eight years old. He is Williams major hope for Athens in August, and the apple of owner Mary Guinnesss eye.
