Hector Van D'Abdijhoeve sold to Denis Lynch
on 29 January 2019
Bertram Allen's 12-year-old stallion will be seen under Denis Lynch in the future

BERTRAM Allen’s Hector Van D'Abdijhoeve has been sold to teammate Denis Lynch.

Previously owned by Noel Delahunty and Ballywalter Farms, the 12-year old stallion by Cabrio Van De Heffinck has been ridden by Allen since the end of his eight-year-old year, and was previously produced by Galway’s Thomas O’Brien.

Allen and Hector recorded numerous five-star victories, with the highlight coming in June 2017 when they won the five-star Grand Prix in St Gallen. Their last big result came in May 2018 when they were runners-up in the five-star Grand Prix of Rome.

“Hector has been a fantastic horse for me with many great successes. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the future with Denis and I would like to thank Noel Delahunty and everyone who was a part of his success,” Allen said on his website.

The high profile stallion the third addition to Lynch’s string in recent weeks, following the retirement of All Star 5 and the sale of The Sinner. Just last week he welcomed Ronnoco Jump Ltd’s 10-year-old stallion Lukas to his stable, and he placed third in the two-star Grand Prix at Kronenberg last Sunday with the 12-year-old gelding Chablis, another new horse.
