BWP Stallion approvals
Great results at the BWP Stallion approvals last weekend. Our young prodigy Qartoon de Muze was elected as vice-champion of BWP. Qartoon is sired by Elvis Ter Putte out of the mare Sara van het Parelshof (s. Voltaire), which makes him a half-brother to Don VHP Z and HH Carlos. Qartoon will be available for breeding through our stud immediately.
Besides Qartoon, there was also a breeding license for Qatar Ter Saleghem. Qatar is by Kannan out of the mare Koreandre de la Pomme (s. Vagabond de la Pomme). The dam line goes back to Qerly Chin.
Last week, we also had an approved stallion at the SBS Stallion approvals, with Mowgli van Polderzicht. This son of Mosito van het Hellehof will also be available via Stal de Muze.
Finals Stallion competition
Mithras de Regor (s. Elvis Ter Putte) once more showed his immense potential in the PAVO Stallion competition for seven-year-olds. He became third in the finals and won the overall classification, just like last year. Our stallions Eames de Hus (five-year-olds) and Navajo van 't Vianahof (six-year-olds) also realised a clear round. Both stallions were ridden by Walter Lelie.
At Indoor Brabant, Gancia de Muze (s. Malito de Rêve) jumped again splendidly. Ridden by Niels Bruynseels, she finished second in the main class on Friday and topped the competition off with a fifth place in the Rolex GP.
André Americo de Miranda and the only nine-year-old Ermes des Bergeries (s. Nabab de Rêve) placed fourth in the GP3* of Vilamoura. Also in the Portugese town, Laura Renwick (Novita Jovial Z, s. Nabab de Rêve) was fourth in a 1.40m-class. At the same height, but in a different class, Marta Bottanelli and Vesthigo Z (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) finished fifth. Obelia vd Bisschop (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Jackson Reed Stephenson finally, earned themselves a first and second place in the classes for five-year-olds.
In Spanish Carmona, Cassandra Malherbe grabbed a 1.40m-victory riding Fee van het Cauterhof (s. Bamako de Muze). Next to this result, it were mostly the performances of the young horses that stood out. Arne Van Heel on Laura Kinney (s. Glock’s London) and Clarissa Lyra on Jordan (s. Nabab de Rêve) in the classes for five-year-olds, Tim Prouvé on Nike-Prova (s. Elvis Ter Putte) in the classes for six-year-olds and finally, Simon Prouvé and Thibeau Spits with the seven-year-olds Milou-Prova (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Madonna Dwerse Hagen (s. Elvis Ter Putte) respectively.
The young horses were also very present in Lier. Jeroen Appelen rode Elite des Ponts (s. Malito de Rêve) to several placings in the classes for five-year-olds and one age category higher, the leading roles were reserved for N-Joy van ‘t Hellewater (s. Elvis Ter Putte, Femke De Graaf), Iowenna (s. Denzel van ‘t Meulenhof, Helen Tredwell) and Nashville van ‘t Meulenhof (s. Elvis Ter Putte, Stephanie Vermeulen).
CSI Vejer de la Frontera
Once more there was just no containing Gotham City PL (s. Filou de Muze) in the classes for seven-year-olds in Vejer de la Frontera. With her Turkish rider Omer Karaevli she added two more victories to her already impressive record. The freshly formed combination Cian O’Connor and Irenice Horta (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) also shone during their first outing together by finishing eighth in the GP.
A fifth place was the result for Rob Eras and James de Muze (s. Nabab de Rêve) in a 1.40m-class in Spanish Oliva. The only five-year-old Otto vd Bisschop (s. El Torreo de Muze) also made himself noted for the first time with a couple of clear rounds with Jessica Geurts.
To finish off this week’s overview, we pass by a couple of Italian competitions. Dieudonné de Guldenboom (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Jane Richard-Philips realised a fourth place over 1.40m in Arezzo. In the classes for five-year-olds, there were two clear rounds for Mattia Brocchi riding Othello van ‘t Meerhof (s. Elvis Ter Putte). Finally, in Gorla Minore, Djibouti de la Pomme (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) and Croatian rider Ante Simlesa won a class for six-year-olds.
