the Champion of his stallion test who is related to Wagrusa through his
dam line. The full sibling of this foal had been bought by VDL Stud as a
stallion prospect. Unfortunately the new born colt broke his elbow. She
gave us two foals which were both First Premium and one was in
the TOP FIVE jumper foal in the KWPN North American tour. The last was born in July too late for keuring.

predicates Ster indicates her quality as being above the standard of

Rays required for stallion approval.
Wagrusa's famous mare line is impressive and loaded with approved stallions, national and international level jumpers and dressage.

closer related to Varusa being as well by Le Val Blanc out of a Sinaeda
Val Blanc is one of the throroughbred with Pericles, Lucky Boy,
Uppercut and Courville who had a tremendous impact on the transformation
of the KWPN. It is nice to find this stallion so close. Sinaeda, Varusa
grand-sire, was an important sire, one of the foundation sires of
the modern Dutch sport horse. His
bloodlines only exist through his daughters, many of whom such as
Varusa's dam, have produced outstanding offspring. They have passed on
his enormous jumping ability, soundness and movement.

Sire Silverstone is the first approved son of Champion du Lys , Derby winner with a top success rate as a producer: World Cup and CSI*** winners. Champion du Lys is regarded as one of the best show jumping sires worldwide. His lifetime winnings amount to almost 2 millions Euros. Ridden by Ludger Beerbaum his career highlights include winning the 2003 “Hamburger Derby” and numerous classes at Grand Prix and Nation Cup level. His offspring follow in his footsteps:
Silverstone received the highest points ever for jumping in years during the stallion Test: take-off 9 - technique 8.5 - scope 9.5 and talent for jumping 9. He finished in 1st place for jumping and a 3rd
place in the total classification. In the Stallion competition of
2005/2006 Silverstone was reserve Champion and in 2006/2007 won the
Stallion Competition winning 3 out of the 4 qualification rounds and is
now jumping at 1.40m level.
Champion du Lys has valuable French sport genes – his grandsire Mexico is full brother to the great stallion Furioso II, who has produced innumerable jumping and dressage horses as well as flourishing stallion lines.
The dam of Silverstone, Marthago, is a real Holstein breeding mare. She became ‘Keur’ and received in her EPTM test, three times an 8 and a 9 for jumping. Her sire Carthago Z earned a 9.5 for free jumping and a 10 for jumping talent! Carthago competed in 15 Nations Cups and was a member of the Dutch team at the Sydney Games. He finished in 11th place at the Atlanta Games with Jos Lanskinkd. With an index of 182 he headed the FN young jumping stallion ratings. Sire Capitol’s grand dam Retina was a Hamburg Jumping Derby with Fritz Thiedemann. His dam, Folia, showed great jumping potential and produced the licensed stallions Latus I and II, as well as the two Capitols, and famous daughters Kausa, Lektion (eventing) and U-Capitola (dam of Lord Capitol).
Folia’s dam, Vase, was a full sister to Romanus who competed with success with Hans Günter Winkler. The dam sire, Calando I stood at several breeding stations in Holstein before pursuing a performance career that culminated in a German Championship with Karsten Huck. Marthago also produces Chuck Z, a Zangersheide approved stallion. Then we find the Ramiro x Gotthard son, Renomee who sired more international jumping horses.
