Philippe Rozier retires his fantastic horse Rahotep de Toscane

Philippe Rozier has retired his amazing horse Rahotep De Toscane (by Quidam de Revel) with which he won the team gold medal at the last Olympic Game in Rio de Janeiro.

"After more than 11 years by my side, it's time for my Rahotep to end his sports career.

He allowed me to participate in the most beautiful events around the world but how we can not umention our greatest victory together: the Olympic team medal in Rio.

I want to thank everyone who has been by his side in the recent years: Maud, Angèle, Vanessa, my whole team, vets, farriers, osteopath, masseuse and everyone who took care of his well-being.

Rahotep will leave a big void in the stable when he goes to Normandy to join his own brother Jadis de Toscane and Lauterbach to start his second life as a breeding stallion at the stud of his owners Mr and Mrs Baillet whom I cannever thank enough for their trust for over 30 years.

Thank you for all my champion"
