Showjumping legend Cruising cloned
13 Feb 2015 19:07
A report in this week's The Irish Field has revealed that the showjumping stallion Cruising has been cloned.
Cruising is regarded as one of the best jumping stallions ever bred in Ireland, winning Grands Prix all over Europe and jumping on winning Nations Cup teams for Ireland in the late 1990s.
Among the horses he sired were Flexible, event horse Mr Medicott and Irish Olympan Electric Cruise.
Cruising died in late 2014, aged 29, shortly after being paraded at the RDS Dublin Horse Show.
Mary McCann of Hartwell Stud said that Cruising was cloned while he was still alive.
The clones were born in the summer of 2012 and have been hidden at Hartwell Stud since then.
