Does the apple fall far from the tree? Chacco-Blue and some of his offspring...

Tuesday, 01 March 2016
Does the apple fall far from the tree...

Chacco-Blue (Chambertin x Contender) was educated by Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst, and in 2011 Andreas Kreuzer took over the reins. Together the two were third in the 2011 Aachen Grand Prix and picked up some top results at international Grand Prix level. Sadly, Chacco-Blue passed away at the age of 14 but his legacy lives on through his many good offspring that competes at international Grand Prix level today – and more are coming up through the ranks. Here is another ‘Does the apple fall far from the tree’. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
