Zirocco Blue has a sireline to dream of as Mr. Blue was one of the best horses at the highest level (Grand Prix and World Cups), but also in breeding he proves that he belongs to the top sires in the world. Grandfather is the ‘Preferent’ stallion Voltaire who competed himself at international level and is Sire and Grand-Sire of many International Sporthorses. After Voltaire we find the five best stallions of the Selle Francais studbook, which produced horses like Diamant de Semilly, Quidam de Revel, Alme and lots of others.
Zirroco Blue’s dam Licorne des Forets is competing at International 1.50 m. level whilst his grand dam Gekas des Forets competed at 1.40m level and was the most winning 6 year old in France. Grand-Grand dam Rapsodie II also competed at 1.40m level and is a full sister to the approved stallion and Grand Prix horse Stew Boy. This mare line produced several approved stallions, National jumpers and International jumpers such as the 2007 National Champion of France, Lavande des Forets.
Zirocco Blue is a modern type stallion and shows lots of potential because he jumps with lots of scope, take off, technique and is very careful. With Jur Vrieling he is one of the most striking stallions in the stallion competition and he placed 3rd in Assen, 3rd in Roosendaal and 4th in Deurne.
His first foal crop are eye catching at the shows. Out of his first breeding year he had three foals in the final of the National Championship: Desperado placed 4th, Dolona placed 6th and Dior placed 7th. Dior was Champion Foal at the CK of Friesland.
Also out of his 2nd year his foals were highly placed. Erelena was the best jumping bred mare foal at the young foal show in Tolbert and placed 3rd at the Dutch Foal Championship. Elfje was reserve-Champion at the provincial foal show and Eldorena O.A. placed 5th in a provincial foal championship.
Zirocco Blue is one of the few approved sons, and the only KWPN approved son of the legendary Mr. Blue.
Zirocco Blue got his approvals for the Holsteiner Verband and this is unique, for such a young stallion which was not bred in Holstein.
Expected breeding value: 145.
Zirocco Blue: New refreshing bloodlines, with the quality of a true performer.
