Vechta Awarded Gold Disc Performance Status by BSJA
Since the recent announcement from the BSJA on the stallions awarded Silver and Gold Disc Performance Status, Jackie Knightley of the BSJA has confirmed to Caroline Thomas at New Priory Stud that VECHTA by Voltaire has been awarded GOLD DISC performance status following his Nations Cup performance in Rome. VECHTA is owned by Mr D Barnwell and William Funnell who says that:
" Vechta has always been an exceptional talent and he has continued to impress throughout 2000 which is apparent from his competition results - being highly placed in 8 International Grand Prix including Dublin CSIO - and his awards this year from the BSJA, I am really looking forward to 2001 and Vechta and I are aiming at being in the European Championships Team in Arnhem".
With this ambition in mind, Vechta is currently at West Kington with Martin Boyle and Tessa Clarke so that he will honour his covering commitments in 2001 via frozen semen only. Further information from Caroline Thomas at New Priory Stud on 01249 750 263 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

If we do not get a chance to talk I would like to take this opprotunity to wish you a VERY VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR from Caroline and Malcolm at New Priory Stud.
