According to the official site for CHIO Rotterdam, VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P, the grey stallion of Jur Vrieling, will not take part in this week’s Furusiyya Nations Cup as previously planned. Following observation of the stallion this morning,it was decided by the consultation team on location that VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P is not in good enough form to participate in the Furusiyya Nations Cup event, which will take place tomorrow afternoon.
Jur Vrieling and VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P will be replaced by Leopold van Asten and VDL Groep Zidane. The Dutch Team is otherwise composed of Jeroen Dubbeldam with SFN Zenith NOP, Gerco Schröder linked to Cognac Champblanc and Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Verdi TN NOP.
We wish the host team the best of luck for the Furusiyya Nations Cup tomorrow.
