This is a very exciting young horse for me ....
16hh now to make 16.2 approx 2.5yo stallion .
this guy is a really super modern type , a real stallion and sport prospect from a top dam line . This is one I consider a real find for the future .
this is of course helped by the fact he is by my favourite sire, Grandorado !
All eyes are on Grandorado TN, being one of the greatest talents of the G-year of the KWPN. In the KWPN Performance Test the son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek earned 85.5 points and he was already described as a phenomenon. Top-level rider Willem Greve discovered many world-class horses in his career and bought a share of Grandorado too. “He is a true natural. He is a rough diamond with all the potential, in my opinion”, Willem Greve states about Grandorado.
His unlimited scope and power, Grandorado inherited from his sire Eldorado van de Zeshoek, a son of Clinton which jumps at the highest level with Willem Greve. Dam Charmieque also jumped at 1.40m level with Willem Greve, after she scored 83 points in a mare performance test of the KWPN. Grandsire Carolus II jumped at Grand Prix level with both Thomas Voss and Schuyler Riley and has produced many international jumpers. Great-grandsire Baloubet du Rouet is also of top-class level, being a top sire and winner of three World Cup Finals and Olympic gold with Rodrigo Pessoa.
Grandorado was not only the champion of the KWPN Performance Test, but also won the 4-year-olds competition at Jumping Schröder Tubbergen. Later on, Grandorado won all three KWPN Stallion Competitions in Ermelo, Roosendaal and Zuidbroek.
grandorado is now stepping up to his first grand prixs with all the class of a world class horse.
this colts dam is “elite “ graded and is a real quality sort herself , such an accolade is not given lightly.
this lads siblings include :
”helcara “ (Eldorado van de zeshoek)Jumps to 130cm level with Dominic wiesener.
”cachacco “ (Chacco blue) junped to 140cm level in uk with Charlie Jones and then in the USA with irishman lorcan gallagher.
horses like this guy are very hard to find ....
