What a great achievement of the Dutch showjumping team in Normandy. World Champion! Ultimately, all that matters is the Power of Performance, the motto of NVP. Anyone who, like our showjumping riders now, wants to win in the future can better purchase the future medal winner at the Prinsjesdag National Foal Auction. On 16 September a large number of foals and embryos are offered for sale who are directly related to the showjumping horses that won gold in Normandy.
One of them, for example, is a Douglas out of the dam of Zenith SFN http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1651450&clienthorseid=89911. Zenith was selected after an impressive season with a silver medal in the Dutch Championship and clear rounds in Rotterdam, Rome and Aachen in classes for the WEG in Normandy. There she did even better than the highest expectations of her, staying clear in two rounds and so securing the golden team medal of the Dutch showjumping team. Besides Zenith, Sascha also produced the AES-licensed stallion Fortissimo (Padinus) and the 1.40m level showjumping horse Allegro TN (Kojak) ridden by Hanno Ellermann.
Out of a full sister of Maikel van der Vleuten’s VDL Groep Verdi (Quidam de Revel x Landgraf I) NVP offers an embryo by super progenitor Baloubet du Rouet http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1646230&clienthorseid=89451. A fully Olympic pedigree with the silver from Verdi in London and gold and bronze from Baloubet, then ridden by Rodrigo Pessoa, in the Athens and Sydney Olympics, respectively.
Thanks to the Glock family, the Netherlands could still avail of Gerco Schröder and Glock’s London in Normandy. Thanks to three breeders and Prinsjesdag National Foal Auction, you can soon be the owner of a foal or embryo by London. Number 84 in the catalogue was bred by Animal Embryo Centre and is out of Bay the Way http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1649414&clienthorseid=89751. This daughter of the top-class Olympic stallion Clinton is out of the former 1.50m level Grand Prix showjumping horse Retina V (Caretino), who, by the name of One Way 3, was successful under the British Christopher Frazer. Her full sister Chika’s Way is also jumping at Grand Prix level and this year won another 1.50m level class in Sankt Gallen under Pius Schwizer. Their dam is the highly valuable state premium mare Wodka II (Lord x G.Ramiro Z) from lineage 1916. In addition to the licensed stallions Conway, Conway II, Conway-T, Clearway and Arturo, she also supplied the winner of the Hamburg 2009 Grand Prix Carassina (Concerto II) ridden by Thomas Kleis.
The same breeder also offers an embryo out of Winning Girl, the full sister of the Olympic showjumping stallion and top-class sire Carthago (Capitol) http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1644239&clienthorseid=89168. Grandam A-Cover Girl jumped at 1.60m level herself and produced, besides Winning Girl, also the Grand Prix showjumping horse Lactic (Landjunker II) ridden by John Whitaker.
The foals of London are just as interesting as these two embryos. Highfield Genetics bred Jondon MB, a colt out of the full sister of Havinia http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1637830&clienthorseid=89083. This Grosso Z daughter and ‘KWPN Horse of the year’ won the GPs of Twente, Rome and Arezzo under Gianni Govoni. Another of her products is her licensed son Untouchable, who is also jumping at Grand Prix level.
Jewel London is a filly from breeder Verver from Albergen. She has extremely interesting gene material for developing a mares line in the future, being the daughter of London out of the dam’s line of Numero Uno http://www.veulenveilingprinsjesdag.nl/detail-pagina/?horseid=1643608&clienthorseid=8908 .
Another horse in the golden team, VDL Bubalu (Jur Vrieling), is not directly represented in this auction. However, the products of sire Baloubet and half-brothers Chaman and Balou du Rouet will be interesting for breeders who want the blood of Baloubet!
And finally, besides the embryo out of the dam of Zenith SFN, also other showjumping horses of Jeroen Dubbeldam are well represented at Prinsjesdag. An embryo by Kannan out of the dam of the top-class horse Simon and a Nabab foal out of Utascha.
