At the age of 17, Lorenzo De Luca’s long-time partner Ensor de Litrange LXII (Nabab de Reve x Mr Blue) has been retired from the sport. De Luca and Ensor de Litrange LXII kicked off their partnership with a win in a CSI3* Grand Prix in Wellington in 2016, not long after the Italian rider had taken over the reins from Jos Lansink – who also had lots of success with the gelding. Later that same year, De Luca and Ensor de Litrange LXII won the CSIO5* Grand Prix in Dublin and jumped a double clear in the Nations Cup at the same venue – helping Italy to the victory. The year after, the two won the CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix in Shanghai, and were third in the CSIO5* Grand Prix on home soil in Rome, before they went on to win the CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix in Valkenswaard later that summer. They also have several podium finishes in some of the biggest Grand Prix and World Cups on the circuit to look back at.
