ENDA Carroll’s Lanaken silver medal-winning mare Ard Ginger Pop has been sold to American rider Alison Firestone Robitaille. By Luidam, out of a Cruising mare called Derrylea Greylady, the seven-year-old chesnut mare was bred in Co Meath by Heather Dean-Wright.

Bought by the Fitzpatrick family of Keatingstown House Stud as an unbroken three-year-old, Ard Ginger Pop went on to top the Goresbridge Supreme Sale of Showjumpers when purchased by Enda Carroll and Carl Hanley for €95,000 in September 2014.
