Royalwood Rossini's son 'Lucifer' takes Grand National Champion Title!

Monday, 1 April 2024

What an absolute thrill to watch 'Lucifer', a son of Royalwood Rossini out of Sara Price's Relentless R (Ruby), take out the 2024 Grand Champion Open Saddle Horse Title at the recently contested Show Horse Council Australasia's Grand National Show Horse Championships.

Having only been competing for just over 12 months what an achievement for Lucifer's owner Emma Ashton of Qld! Expertly piloted by Rhys Stanley and aptly assisted by Qld's Universal Show Team, this stunning boy was sashed Champion Large Galloway earlier in the show to earn eligibility to compete at the 'Night of Stars' where all title winners vye for Grand Champion accolades.
Amongst the crème de la crème of Australasia's show horses Lucifer handled the high octane atmosphere of the evening's proceedings to perform at his very best.

We are thrilled to witness Rossini's progeny doing him proud on the National and Royal stage throughout Australia and New Zealand.
