April 24th a filly by Apardi was born out of our mare Eline H. This high-blooded, strong foal received the name Magnificentia Eickenrode; Latin for nobleness, pride and luxury. At the regional foal inspections, Magnificentia obtained a first premium.
Dam Eline H
Eline H was a sharp Indoctro-mare out of a performance line. Unfortunately, the mare passed away in 2020. Eline H obtained the prestatie predicate thanks to the sport results of her first three offspring. The eldest, Icelos Eickenrode (s.Dakar VDL) qualified for the national Blom Cup final as a six-year-old where he placed seventh. As a result, he earned a ticket to the world championships in Lanaken, where he reached the prestigious finals. Jinocentia Eickenrode (s.Arezzo VDL) is internationally active with Joanne Whitaker in the young horse classes and already obtained many top placements. Kamena Eickenrode (s.Etoulon VDL) was champion of the Foal Inspection in Terschuur, placed 9th at the National Foal Championships final and later drew attention in the ring under Alice Palmer (GBR). The mare was then acquired by the Grand Prix rider Richard Howley (IRL) and is currently campaigned at the international shows by his stable HK Horses.
Dam Kiss Me II is a staatsprämie mare by Corrado I. She also produced the 1.35m jumper Freddie H (s.Bacardi VDL). Ciona H Z was sold at the Swedish Select Sales as a three-year-old and received an 8 for type, 8.5 for jumping technique and 9 for attitude at the SWB inspection, bringing the total to 48 points. Kiss Me II is also the granddam of VDL Glenn BH, sport alias Remington. This gelding was sold for 135.000 dollar at 4 years of age to Susan and Ariel Grange at the 2015 WEF Sport Horse Auction in Wellington Florida. Ridden by Daniel Coyle, the gelding secured numerous winnings in the young horse classes. Kiss Me II is also the granddam of the international showjumper Ben-A of Aurore der Straeten (BEL).
Holsteiner stamm 2151
Another pairing of Corrado I and the hauptstutbuch mare Wanda VI (s.Othello) resulted in General Krachus, an international 1.60m Grand Prix horse that had quite the winning streak in Germany with Janne Friederike Meyer, Schultz and Kreutzmann. Wanda VI is also the dam of the international showjumper Alboreto of Luca Onofri, that was bred by former jumping rider and Holstein Breeder of the Year 2017 Ernst Carsten Rolfs. The Cor de la Bryere-mare Intscha brought the famous Grand Prix horse Optibeurs Richard – also bred by Rolfs, that gathered a long list of achievements with Otto Becker. In 1990, the Rodrigo-offspring even ranked as the most successful and top earning Holsteiner. Intscha furthermore foaled the national jumper Anaconda 20. The Cor de la Bryere mare is in addition the half-sister of two approved stallions by Nautilus xx: Dolman (KWPN & Holstein) and Navarra II (HOLST). The lineage of this mare is the Holsteiner line number 2151, that also produced the KWPN-approved Q.Breitling LS of Beezie Madden and a wide rang of (inter)national jumpers and approved stallions.
Sire Apardi (s.Corland) competed in the Olympic Games of Rio de Janeiro with Daniel Bluman and is a full brother of Edwina Tops-Alexander’s Bacardi VDL. Grandsire Indoctro preferent is one of the best sires worldwide. He produced many top horses, resulting in a high breeding index in various studbooks. His offspring perform at the highest levels in Grands Prix and World Cup competitions, like the recently successful VDL Groep Arera C, Unique, Imothep and Hello M’Lady. The dam’s sire is the exceptional Corrado I. This stallion won various World Cup competition and was the topwinning stallion of Germany with Frank Sloothaak. Corrado I is also known for being the sire of Clinton and Indorado (both of which also greatly influenced modern breeding) and sires circa 20 approved stallions and many international jumper horses such as Coradina. Othello is also well desired in the dam line and in the fourth generation we once again see Cor de la Bryere, one of the pillars of the Holstein breeding.
