Upperville, Virginia. October 22nd, 2014- Allison Springer of Upperville, VA announced today that with the help of the Team Springer Syndicate LLC, she has purchased Mr. Sydney Rocks. Mr. Sydney Rocks is a ten year old gelding out of Lenardo, who has competed successfully through the CIC3* level. Springer, who has spent time over the past couple of years dedicated to building a strong string of horses, is enthusiastic about starting her partnership with Mr. Sydney Rocks, found in Europe by fellow American Jessica Montgomery.

Montgomery, who relocated to the UK a few years ago with her husband, US rider Clark Montgomery, has found several top horses for other riders, and has been praised for her ability to spot talent. Springer gave thanks to Jessica for her assistance in sourcing her new mount saying, “I have been searching for a quality horse with Advanced level experience for quite some time, and I’m very grateful for Jessica Montgomery’s help in finding this horse.”

Mr. Sydney Rocks, previously owned by Mr. and Mrs. Time Page, has an impressive foundation, and resume of notable riders. Having started his competition career with Clayton Fredericks, Lucinda Fredericks took over the reins upon Clayton’s move to America. She competed the horse through the CIC3* level, until recently, when Christopher Burton took over the ride. Allison also thanked the Page’s for trusting her with Syd’s future, in addition to those who have made him into the horse he is today. “I know that the Page’s could have sold this horse to a lot of different people, and appreciate them trusting me with his future. I also can not say enough good things about the training he has had to date, as he has truly been brought up by some of the best riders in the world.”

Springer plans to get to know her new partner over the next few months at her home base in The Plains, Virginia, before heading south to begin preparations for the 2015 season, and is enthusiastic about her new geldings talents. “I absolutely think Mr. Sydney Rocks has all the ingredients to be a top horse, and I can not wait to see where our journey takes us”, Allison remarked. “I can not thank everyone involved in the Team Springer Syndicate LLC enough for their dedication, support, and belief in my goals.”

A few select Syndication shares to be involved in ownership of Mr. Sydney Rocks are still available. Those interested in being a part of this opportunity are urged to contact Allison directly via email at Allisoncspringer@gmail.com.
