Standing Ovations for Champion Stallions
The son of Conthargos - Balou du Rouet - Chacco-Blue - Lancer III, bred and exhibited by Johann Ifverson from Sweden, was awarded as the winner of the Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg-International (OS). His granddam Chaccos-Lüd is the sister of the successful jumping stallions Chacco's Son I & II for the Tebbel stud. Oldenburgs Breeding Director Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff commented on the jumping talent: "This young stallion is very well presented and modern in type. He impressed us with his very accurate jumping, fast in reaction with a very good foreleg and with a lot of fortune. This son of Conthargos is a good example of well-bred and sport-successful dam lines. He convinced with his overall package and is a worthy champion stallion today.”
