FINALS TNT SIRES OF THE WORLD TO ZANGERSHEIDE
As a result of a general ban on the transport of livestock issued by Minister Brinkhorst, the board of Indoor Brabant has decided that the international concours hippique in the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch cannot take place. The planned final of the TNT Sires of the World of Friday evening 23 March will, therefore, take place at a later date.
It was only this morning that the organisation heard that the final in Den Bosch has been cancelled. All invitees and participants were immediately called and warned of the situation that had arisen. After an emergency meeting it was decided to postpone the finals to a date in September. During the international competition at Domain Zangersheide in Lanaken (20 to 23 September) the 25 stallions that had qualified for the finals can still fight for the title of TNT Sires of the World. Originally the first heats of the new season's competition were to be held in Lanaken. Now this honour is bestowed on Hanover; it will have its turn on the international calendar about a month after the event at Zangersheide (26 to 28 October) . After that in Kiel, Amsterdam and Mechelen the best stallions in the world will have another chance to qualify to take part in the final of the TNT Sires of the World which will take place in Den Bosch in March 2002.
