What do you think of the half-brother of the 1.60m stallion Cosun or a relative of the Olympic Romeo 88 of Harry Charles? As usual, the KWPN Select Sale offers a top collection of promising young stallions on a silver platter. And the icing on the cake, one of the selected stallions is awarded as Premium Stallion today. 

The Gaspahr son Popino-Larus showed himself today as a real star and did receive the Premium predicate. With him, another four horses have been invited for the KWPN Performance Test. Only the best KWPN stallions are awarded with this predicate, and you’ve got the chance to invest in the best KWPN Auctions has to offer. 

Solid as a rock

The pedigrees of the showjumping stallions are solid as a rock. Thus, sons of LGCT Super Grand Prix winner Tobago Z, Olympic Emerald van 't Ruytershof, Grand Prix sport and breeding stallion Eldorado van de Zeshoek, international championship horse All Star 5, the 1.60m horses Gaspahr, Uricas van de Kattevennen and Dominator Z, as well as legendary top sire Chacco-Blue are part of the collection.

His great-grandam Isolde van de Heffinck (s.Contact vd Heffinck) performs at 1.50m, she is a half-sister of the Olympic Romeo 88 of Harry Charles. Picasso SRK (s.All Star) is a half-brother to the 1.55m and approved KWPN stallion, It's Possible SRK. A great future lies ahead for Playboy TN (s.Eldorado van de Zeshoek) as half-brother to the 1.60m horse Esteban. Papaver MJ is sired by Opium JW van de Moerhoeve, a descendant of the Van ‘t Roosakker lineage. Besides, Papaver MJ is the half-brother to the successful 1.60m showjumper Frasier (s.Carambole) and to the 1.50m showjumper Jack (s.Marius Claudius).

Champion Grand Prix stallion Cosun
