Alyssa competed Wrazzmatazz through Grand Prix (while she was pregnant with her first son, Connor!), and sold him in 2012. He has since gone one to win Silver and Bronze medals at NAJYRC in the Younger Riders division, to win the Palm Peach Derby, and to place at NAJRYC with his current Junior rider.

Christoph Koschel of Germany, said of Wrazzmatazz: “This is always special in an atmosphere like this,” Koschel said. “I don’t know if this horse was ever in an atmosphere like this so you don’t know what you get or what you can expect. I think it was a perfect horse for this final because he was very, very honest and nice to ride, and it made it easier for both of us.”

Mikala Munter Gundersen said of Wrazzmatazz: “The horse has not been in an atmosphere like this before,” Munter Gundersen said. “I was happy that Chris went first, so if the horse was going to be spooky, [it was] with him and really nice with me! He was really great with both of us though, and I had a super clean test with only a few mistakes in my three-tempis. It takes a special horse to go in there with strange riders and be so nice.”
