For the first time since the tragic loss of his famed partner Hickstead three years ago, Lamaze is burning up the International ring. In the past few weeks, he’s won THREE five-star classes in Europe on TWO different horses. (Both owned by Artisan Farm’s Carlene and Andy Zeigler.)

Earlier this month, he claimed €200,000 Grand Prix of La Baule, France with Powerplay.

Last week, he won both the €24,000 1.50m Premio 3 AND the €200,000 Grand Prix of Rome with Zigali P S.

Now, it’s no surprise that the former World #1 is “lamazing.” But it turns out, he’s also an EXCELLENT fake boyfriend. Not that you think of him like that or anything…

[Awkward pause]

But if, say, you did. Or now kind of are because we keep talking about it, fear not! WE’RE HERE TO HELP. Below are Lamaze’s best quotes from the past few weeks. We’ve replaced all references to horses with “you” to reveal the sensitive, self-reflective side every good fake boyfriend should have. (You’re welcome, Eric.)
