It could not get much more exciting, but it turned out well! Kasanova de la Pomme and Koen Vereecke were able to take the Sire of the World title with one hundredth of a second advantage. Talking about a heartbreaker. The bronze medal in this competition went to Gilles Thomas and Feromas van Beek, a son of our Fantomas de Muze. Further in the top ten we saw Navarone Z (s. Nabab de Rêve) under Gerben Morsink, Hugh Grant de Muze (s. Shindler de Muze) under Frederic Bouvard and Ipsthar (s. Denzel van 't Meulenhof) under Bas Moerings.
In the finals of the World Championships, the offspring of our stallions showed that they are also cut from the right cloth. In the 7-year-olds championship, Massimo Fiocchi finished sixth on Jaden WP (s. Denzel van 't Meulenhof). Michael Pender and GCS Athena (s. Vigo d'Arsouilles) were twelfth. Also in the final we saw Origi Horta (s. Kasanova de la Pomme, Kendra Claricia Brinkop), Ollister du Lys (s. Scendro, Manuel Thiry), Embassy de Courcy (s. Vigo d'Arsouilles, Laurens Houben), Scarlina de Tiji (s. Scendro, Niels Bruynseels), Ogina vd Bisschop (s. Vigo d'Arsouilles, Bert Panneels) and Oakley van Dorperheide (s. Elvis Ter Putte, Jan Vermeiren).
In the 6-year-olds BP Limitless (s. Elvis Ter Putte) stood out with Max O'Reilly Hyland and in the Championship for 5-year-olds the offspring of Mosito van het Hellehof impressed. Thus Morice F Z (Katrijn Van Hoecke) finished neatly in tenth place. Also Qnokke de Muze (Dieter Laheyne) managed to qualify for the final, as did Lightning Blue WS (s. Vigo d'Arsouilles, Lone Marie Øglend) and Q-Elvis Presley HH (s. Elvis Ter Putte, Alexander Housen).
Congratulations to all!
