Iron Man in top shape at CSIO in Linz

Gregory sets high hopes on him and he is starting to confirm them. "For several months, I've been preparing him for a 5* level, and above all so that he is ready on the day he will have to take that step up. The last few week-ends, we have been harvesting   on all the work done last year and earlier in the season in Spain. This week-end in Linz he was just super with first of all this beautiful 2nd place in the big class on Saturday. Then he realized a clear round in the GP with remarkable ease, and it is only because he slipped in the last turn of the jump off, obliging me to make a volte before the penultimate oxer, that we did not get a very good ranking in this GP. So I am obviously very satisfied about him. And I think he will very soon be able to come with me to the biggest competitions."
