Dutch Champion Stallion 2009
An absolutely superb outcross pedigree for German
breeding with a unique dam line and Grand Prix blood from
This young stallion provides our breeders with a genuinely
rare set of genes from one of the most successful bloodlines
in the world. Bordeaux is a direct descendent of Angelo xx’s
daughter Adone, whose son Rembrandt is a 4 times Olympic
gold medal winner with his rider, Nicole Uphoff, and one of
the most successful and brilliant dressage horses in the
world. Adone is also full sister to Olympic gold medal winner
Ahlerich/Dr. Reiner Klimke and Amon, who won team silver
at the Barcelona Olympics with Annemarie Sanders-Keijzer.
Another full sister, Antine, is the direct dam of the bloodline
founder and trademark stallion Rubinstein.
Sire United achieved the highest grade ever awarded at his
stallion performance test in Ermelo (9.5 for dressage
qualities and 9.5 for trot and canter). His sire Krack C was
Anky van Grunsven’s Jerez World Championship horse, and
with his dam’s sire TCN Partout she won multiple Grand Prix
Krack C Bordeaux optimally displays his phenomenal genes in
wonderfully elastic movements, an excellent walk and a
fantastic uphill canter. His dam’s sire Gribaldi – Trakehner
United Stallion of the Year 2008 – is a successful international
TCN Partout Grand Prix horse with Edward Gal, and granddam Leandra
Nessica won St. Georges with Hans Peter Minderhoud.
Bordeaux – that’s about as much Grand Prix potential as
