TRIPLE-OLYMPIC gold medallist Andrew Hoy will take over the ride on the four-star eventer Lanfranco TSF, usually ridden by his ex-wife Bettina Hoy.

Andrew’s connections said Bettina decided to return Lanfranco TSF to his owner, Hoy Enterprises, while Bettina’s statement was that she had to hand over the reins as part of their divorce settlement.

The horse competed successfully at the highest level but is known to have a nervous temperament, especially in the dressage phase and was retired at Burghley when he failed to cope. Lanfranco TSF has ­already been moved from Germany to Andrew’s training facility in Leicestershire. There are plans to start competing him later this year.

Andrew said he was looking forward to working with the horse.

Bettina described the horse as “her soulmate” and said she had always respected Andrew’s talents as a rider and wished him the best of luck.
