I feel like I’ve done as much as I can do. Indigo has proven over and over. You know, last year he was leading horse in the Rolex FEI World Cup standings. He’s been clean in every big venue. He was clean in both the Nations Cup and grand prix in La Baule (France). And same thing in Rome. If you go on past histories, hopefully that will help him to some degree. For sure, if they go on the trials, he should hopefully be there. But unfortunately, I just don’t know.
So, we’ll keep our fingers crossed between now and then.
