Sire: TACORDE had an extremely successful career at the Grand Prix level of show jumping with numerous top-ten finishes and well over $100,000 in career earnings. He is now producing upper-level show jumpers when bred to good show jumping mares, and has offspring competing up to 1.30m so far with the best-bred ones just 6 years old. He also has two approved sons, one standing in New Zealand and the other in Canada. Tacorde adds scope, a good canter and heart to his offspring, along with correct conformation and a good, balanced bone.
Dam: FERONIA D was imported from VDL in Holland. She scored an 80 in her free jumping and has ster and prok predicates. She also competed to 1.20m after having her first foal. She comes from a very important mother line, daughter of elite mare BOZELLA and granddaughter of OZELLA. Ozella is an important mare for sport. Her daughter UZELLA (Lux Z) was Dutch champion of 3-year-old mares and is also the mother of DUZELLA (Indoctro) who is the dam of the 2017 champion of the KWPN stallion show Jardonnay VDL. Ozella has four offspring competing at the FEI level. Feronia's brother HURRICANE VDL has also been competing to 1.30m. Her sire, BALTIC VDL, is proving to be a good sire of sport horses with several 7 and 8-year-olds rising to the FEI level. He was the KWPN testing champing as a 3-year-old and now competes to 1.50m. His daughters have done exceptionally well at mare shows with impressive scores for free jumping.
Notes: OLEANDER FF (aka Zander) is a correct, modern colt with an impressive pedigree for sport. His sire and both grandsires competed to Grand Prix level. He is the product of a strong mother line that has produced multiple successes in sport as well as breeding stallions. Zander has a wonderful attitude and is a lovely foal to handle. He is going to be a competitive partner for someone who wants to succeed at the highest level of show jumping.
