WORLD silver medallist eventer Padraig McCarthy has welcomed Mark Todd’s Leonidas II to his stable following the New Zealand rider’s retirement from the sport.

The 15-year-old Landos-sired gelding, who is owned by Diane Brunsden and Peter Cattell, was seventh individually at the 2019 Rio Olympic Games. Under Todd, he has competed at five Badminton Horse Trials, finishing fourth in 2015 and 2016, and sixth in 2017.
