Quel Ange, a 10-year-old bay stallion owned by Jabeena Maslin and ridden by Kathryn Ellison, is this year’s winner of the British Showjumping Retraining of Racehorses/SEIB National Recognition Award series.

Jabeena first registered Quel Ange with British Showjumping in 2010 and since then the stallion has enjoyed success starting at discovery level (1.10m) and in less than two years progressing to competing at 1.25m, amassing notional winnings of £445 during this year’s series.

"Quel Ange has taken to showjumping like a duck to water," says Jabeena. "He’s a careful, fast jumper with a lot of scope and I’m thrilled that he has topped this year’s series; it’s a great privilege for me as an owner and Kathryn as a rider. I’m very grateful to Kathryn for the work that she has done with him and we’re aiming him at the 1.30m classes next year."

Quel Ange had nine starts on the flat. He was placed second on two occasions during his racing career, which spanned from 2004 – 2006.

The British Showjumping Retraining of Racehorses/SEIB National Recognition Awards provides a focus for ex-racehorses competing in the discipline of showjumping.

The final standings for 2012 are:

1= Quel Ange owned by Jabeena Maslin and ridden by Kathryn Ellison

2= Vite Etoile owned and ridden by Nicola Braidwood

3= Petite Pistolet owned by Kieley Powles and ridden by John Garrett

4= Zolushka owned by and ridden by Emily Clifton

5= Miss Olivia owned by Lee Lawrence and ridden by Charlotte McCaugherty

6= Captain Willoughby owned and ridden by Jo Fulcher

Di Arbuthnot, director of operations at RoR said: "The series has proved to be popular this year and I hope that it will continue to encourage more riders to recognise the talents and versatility of the Thoroughbred. Thoroughbred horses have great potential for success in another sphere and I’m looking forward to seeing which horses get involved in 2013."
