“[Bull Run’s] Almighty is one of my greener horses, and I’m trying to develop him. He’s a little bit older than Bull Run’s Prince of Peace, so he’s ready, but he just needs more time under the lights. I think it’s a good thing to keep pushing him and giving him the experience.”
Vanderveen and “Almighty,” the 2008 Hanoverian gelding (Caspar x Quidam De Revel) owned by Bull Run Jumpers Six, LLC, had just one rail down in the first round to finish eighth in the $70,000 Ingles Grand Prix CSI 2* as the fastest four-fault round.
