Agency eyes Olympic glory with Paulank Brockagh

As an agency with a specialized Sports PR division, we were already looking forward to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Excitement is at fever pitch as the great Paulank Brockagh – bred by none other than agency founder Frank and Paula Cullen – will take part in the Equestrian schedule.

Former Badminton winner

It’s been just over two years since Paulank Brockagh, ridden by Australian Sam Griffiths, shot to fame by becoming just the fourth mare in history to win the coveted 2014 Badminton title. (One of the toughest Badmintons ever; “a battlefield” according to the Daily Telegraph.)

Now the Cullen-bred horse is in Brazil for a shot at Olympic glory, again with Sam Griffiths on board representing Team Australia. Paulank Brockagh will compete in the gruelling three-day event category, widely tipped to be one of the most fiercely-contested of the equestrian events.

She will take part in the Individual/Team Dressage event this Saturday and Sunday.
