Stable Star - Quality Old Joker

Quality Old Joker, known at home as George, was bought by Holly’s husband Graham at the Gorebridge sales. Not Holly’s ‘cup of tea’ he was sold to James Mossman, a former field-master for the Quorn, as a hunter. When sent back to Holly for some fine-tuning he started winning so it was decided he would stay with her. Since then the 17.3hh has proven his versatility, turning his hoof to puissance - winning at Olympia, HOYS and Liverpool International - as well as international speed and Grand Prix classes with Holly believing his best is yet to come.
