Explosion W clinched a beautiful fourth spot in the Grand Prix of the Longines Global Champions Tour in Paris with Ben Maher (picture). The same combination already won on Friday a big tour 1.55m class, in which Zinius (Harrie Smolders) and Extra (Olivier Philippaerts) finished third and fifth. In our collection we present three remarkable foals that are from the dam’s side closely related to these world class horses.
First of all the filly Narina I W (s. Thunder van de Zuuthoeve). She is bred out of the dam Zarina (s. Heartbreaker), no one else than the sister of the mentioned Explosion W, the nine-year-old phenomenon that already won the GCT of Madrid and became second in Shanghai this season! Also Extra is an only nine-year-old KWPN-registered horse that already catches the eye at the highest level. He is bred out of Wucinda (s. Heartbreaker), also the dam of the selected colt Number One (s. Diamant de Semilly). And last but not least the colt Dex Special MB Z (s. Dominator). His dam I’m Special Sinia HB is the full sister to Winia van ‘t Vennehof (1.50m level), the dam of Harrie Smolders’ Zinius.
All these up-to-date results at 5* level confirm again at an objective way the genetic value of our collection, consisting of an enormous amount of Grand Prix-genes both from sire’s and dam’s side. The jumping foals collection will -like the dressage foals collection- be announced in short notice. The jumping foals will come under the hammer on Wednesday August 29th at PSC Lichtenvoorde in Vragender.
