Your breeding product first and second in Aachen. A dream for many, a reality for Kees Klaver from Schoorl, when last week the Big Star (Nick Skelton) and Taloubet Z (Christian Ahlmann), bred by him, were each other's biggest competitors in the Europe Prize. An unbelievably good performance. Equally interesting is the colt Jaloubet K, which will be auctioned on September 18 at the Prinsjesdag Foal Auction. This Jaloubet K comes out of the mare Alanda K., a daughter of Taloubet K and a half sister of Big Star.
Big Star and Taloubet hardly need any further introduction. Both horses belong to the absolute best in the world today thanks to their top attitude, quick reflexes and power. They have both been selected for London and are among the contenders for a medal of honor. Big Star and the Prinsjesdag auction foal Jaloubet were bred by Kees Klaver out of the good breeding family 133. Granddam Jolanda jumped ZZ herself and, in addition to Big Star and Alanda K, produced a 1.40m and a Z jumper. The direct dam line also produced the approved stallion Amethist and the international jumping approved stallion Matterhorn, as well as several other sport horses, approved stallions and well-breeding mares. Kees Klaver combined this top line with the best blood in France, which comes together in the stallion Jazz de Coquerie. This grandson of Grand Veneur comes from a dam of the legendary Quidam de Revel, who competed internationally in the sport up to 1.40m level with Ramzy al Duhami. Jaloubet is a foal from his first crop.
The Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will take place on Tuesday September 18, 2012. The selection committee has again succeeded this year in selecting a collection of extra quality foals, in terms of model, movement and pedigree. Jaloubet K is an example of this.
