Blue Angel, an 11-year-old Anglo European Sporthorse(AES), owned by Robin Parsky of Rancho Santa Fe, won the prestigious JLT Dublin Stakes Aug. 10 at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show held at the Royal Dublin Society show grounds.

As a representative of the United States at this International CSIO Horse Show, Kent Farrington, the rider, and Blue Angel were presented with the Silver Cup of Dublin and the National Anthem of the U.S. was played as the Stars and Stripes were raised in front of 30,000 spectators. This was the second win for Blue Angel at Dublin. In 2011 she won the Irish Sport Council Trophy.

The mare has many fans in Ireland as her sire, Luidam, was a champion show jumping horse for the highly-acclaimed Irish rider Billy Twomey and he is now a prominent sporthorse sire in Ireland. Robin Parsky also has Irish roots as her father’s family were the Clearys from County Mayo.

Blue Angel and Robin Parsky have been in Paris, Chantilly, Dublin and now Valkenswaard, The Netherlands, for the Global Champions Tour and as representatives of the United States Equestrian Team(USET). Blue Angel has consistently won or placed to help her rider, Kent Farrington, reach the number 8 spot on the Longines World Ranking Show Jumping List.
