Danny Ocean

2008 KWPN GELDING, WYNTON-ZARLIEN/KRACK C

When Belinda Nairn of Inspo texts Lauren and said, “Found your next horse, get on a plane,” Lauren gets on a plane. When Belinda met “Danny” in Holland, she knew that not only was he special, but he was exactly Lauren’s type – short coupled, powerful and a little bit cheeky. Danny placed 9th overall, and was the highest placed gelding, at the PAVO Cup as a four-year-old. Their path together was interrupted by colic surgery, but he’s been a model patient and continues to make progress towards recovery and, hopefully, a competition career.
