Sire: Eurocommerce Singapore (Acorado I - Cantus - Cor De La Bryere)
Remarkable, a gentleman of rank, distinguished. These are the first thoughts that strike you when you see the stallion Eurocommerce Singapore. When you see him jumping, it is apparent that he can do it superbly. You see a beautiful animal- you see that he has quality. You feel the charisma that marks him; he is at his most beautiful when jumping in competition. Eurocommerce Singapore goes with a natural, light gait round the course; he bends, he jumps, he sweeps over the bar and all that immaculately, as done by the show jumping book standard.
The six year old grey Eurocommerce Singapore was, not far off three years old, the overal champion of the ZFDP approvals in Kreuth (Bavaria). At the time he was called Acquit-H; the H stood for Hof Himmerich, the stud of his breeder François Schneider. Two months later he was certified by the Rheinland-Pfalz stud book. At his performance test in Adelheidsdorf (1997), Eurocommerce Singapore’s sire Acorado I was champion with a fabulously high index with 149.24 for jumping. In his list of marks he has the maximum score of 10 points for jumping twice. Unfortunately, Acorado could not fulfil the rapt expectations for him in sport because at eight years old he had an accident. Eurocommerce Singapore’s dam F-Cora is by Cantus-Cor de la Bryère - Ronald - Fontan -Rushing Water xx and is from stock 5330, also one of the ‘small’ lines that contribute to distributing blood within the Holstein population. Eurocommerce Singapore’s great grandam Solide produced the stallion Federsee van Fier de Lui Z, in state service at the Bavarian stud Schwaiganger.
DamSire: Padinus (Heartbreaker - Grannus - Tangelo xx)
Padinus’s sire Heartbreaker jumped triumphantly under Peter Geerink. Among other things he won the ‘Best Stallion’ title at the International Stallion Show in Zwolle and took fourth place in the prestigious Aachen Grand Prix. Heartbreaker also shines as a showjumper up-grader in the world of breeding. Padinus was bred by Bert Poppelaars out of the International showjumper mare Ladina. Under her rider Wil Schellekens Ladina has been very successful at high levels. Thus among other things she came second in the Luxembourg Grand Prix. The dam’s sire Grannus is among one of the best stallions ever in the world. As well as dozens of progeny who achieve in International show jumping such as the legendary jumpers Top Gun and Grannusch, Grannus can also be found as dam’s sire of the top International horses Weihaweig and For Pleasure. Padinus also carries a lot of blood from the thoroughbred stallions Tangelo xx and Courville xx in the third and fourth generations of the dam line. With his capacities as a show jumper, Padinus is among the top of his season’s crop. He participated successfully under Peter Geerink in the 1.30 m sections and has had many wins and has been highly classed in, among other things, Indoor Brabant and Varsseveld.
2nd DamSire: Burggraaf, Pref (Landgraf I - Cor De La Bryere - Mandarin)
Burggraaf jumped at International level under Roelof Bril. In 1991, for example he jumped a wall of 2.10 meters at Indoor Brabant. In 1993 he was Reserve Champion in the 1.40 stallion class. The ‘preferent’ Burggraaf is a product of the Holstein success formula Landgraf I x Cor de la Bryere. His sire Landgraf I is one of the most successful show jumping horse progenitors of the twentieth century. On his dam’s side Burggraaf goes back via the legendary sport horse producer Cor de la Bryere to Holstein lineage 7126. From this famous family also come the approved stallions Acord I, Accord II, Acrobat I, Acrobat II, Acrobat III, Arico, Fra Diavolo, Chicago and Freeman. Burggraaf can be counted as one of the most successful showjumper producers in the whole world. Especially his product Leslie Howard’s S’Blieft, Burggravin with Roelof Bril, Kuno under Peter Wylde, Now or Never under Piet Raaijmakers and Procobs Dumbo with Thomas Fruhmann won series of Grand Prix and World Cup qualifiers. Burggraaf can hand down his size and movements as well as his enormous jumping ability. He is represented world-wide by more than thirty approved sons, such as Graaf, Habsburg, Kroongraaf, Manhattan, Mermus R, Murano, Budweiser and Orion Fortuna. Moreover, Burggraaf has delivered a huge amount of ‘ster’ and ‘keur’ mares as well as high-ranking horses at selections. Also the Grand Prix dressage horses Florijn (Dennis Calin) and Lousiville (Leunus van Lieren) are progeny of Burggraaf.
