Discover the collection

The first of the impeccable collection of horses available through the exclusive Tops International Auction are unveiled below. 

1. Chacco Blue coupled with Zantana damline

This foal is a filly by Chacco Blue and the great mare Zantana Z who was ultra competitive under Alberto Zorzi. They caught the spotlights all across Europe placing high in Monaco, Hamburg, Rome and so on. In her day she was the one to watch in every speed class at 5* level. She inherited those outstanding qualities directly from her mother, Pristana. This mare by Guidam jumped all the Grand Prix and World Cup’s under Daniel Deusser when riding at Stal Tops. Being a filly, by Chacco Blue, out of an international dam and a 5* Grand Prix grand-dam, this filly has a dream story.

2. The blood of royalty - Comme Il Faut x Fair Light filly

Combining wto Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix winners. Comme Il Faut won the Vienna Grand Prix at the iconic Rathausplatz in the Austrian capital, and the dam of this exclusive filly won the Berlin Grand Prix in one of the toughest rings in the world. But that was just one of the breathtaking results Fair Light van’t Heike and Alberto Zorzi would produce. 3rd in the Shanghai LGCT Grand Prix, 2nd in the Monaco LGCT Grand Prix, 2nd in the La Coruna 5* Grand Prix, 3rd in the Valkenswaard Grand Prix, winner of the Oslo World Cup and the list goes on and on, but we have to stop talking about Fair Light’s results because her pedigree is just as impressive. 

She is a sister of the 1.60m Grand Prix horse Evian van’t Heike of Fabio Sarti. Both are bred out of the mare, Volympia, who jumped at 1.45m level with Yves Vanderhasselt. Volympia is a sister of the dam of Jos Lansink’s 5* Grand Prix winner, Valentina van’t Heike, who won the Paris and Abu Dhabi 5* Grand Prix, was 3rd in Cascais, Estoril and in Monaco and won team bronze at the Kentucky World Equestrian Games. 

3. True championship bloodlines - Bacardi x Tequila

Colt by Bacardi out of Lintea Tequila Colt by Bacardi out of Lintea Tequila

This colt is probably the most exclusive colt to appear at any auction in 2023! Both parents have stood on the podium of the Longines Global Champions Tours Grand Prix and the both have jumped in the big championships. The colt is sired by the great Bacardi VDL, who had a stellar career with Edwina Tops-Alexander and Janika Sprunger, jumping the WEG in Tryon, and finishing 2nd in the Doha LGCT Grand Prix, winning the Dubai World Cup and finishing 3rd in Rotterdam.

However the dam is even more exclusive. Lintea Tequila is to be considered as one of the best horses that Edwina Tops-Alexander ever rode, maybe even as one of the best mares that ever jumped, regardless of the rider.

She finished Top 10 in no less than an incredible 13 5* Grand Prix, winning in Doha and Miami Beach. They were an example of harmony and unity which led them to finish 9th individually at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, with one rail in the 2nd round of the final, keeping them out of the jump-off for the medals... This is the first time a foal out of this mare is presented at an auction.
