Prinsjesdag opens up with offspring Baloubet du Rouet

Baloubet du Rouet and the Prinsjesdag have a lot in common: they both stand for performance and quality. In addition, many Baloubet foals were sold on the third Tuesday. Last Sunday, the five-star Grand Prix of Falsterbo was won by Bonne Chance CW (photo), daughter of Baloubet du Rouet, who was auctioned as a foal by Prinsjesdag.

The only nine-year-old superstar of Janike Sprunger thus earned 66,000 euros, after she also showed a top round in the Nations Cup. The breeding product of HJF van Loon from Hooge Mierde, who had Bonne Chance CW (ds. Cambridge) auctioned in 2006, also won the 1.50m Grand Prix of CSI3* Busto Arsizio and Vejer de la Frontera earlier this year.

No auction on Prinsjesdag passes without the offspring of Baloubet du Rouet being part of the collection. Also this year with four direct children and six grandchildren through his sons Balou du Rouet (3x) and Chaman (2x) and as mother's father (1x).

One of the many gems is the colt of Baloubet du Rouet x Opium, whose grandam is the 1.60m Grand Prix show jumper Sterrehof's Ushi (by Vigo d'Arsouilles) ridden by Julia Kayser. And what about a Baloubet du Rouet out of the well-known Krista (by Polydor), the dam of the winner of the World Cup final Taloubet K with Christian Ahlmann?

The popular progenitor Balou du Rouet is auctioning a daughter of BMC Octavia (by Jus de Pomme), former winner of the Grand Prix of CSI Twente with Jurgen Stenfert. An Edinburgh stallion from a daughter of Balou du Rouet is also being auctioned, the stallion that was also auctioned at Prinsjesdag at the time.

From the Baloubet son Chaman, very successful under Ludger Beerbaum, there is a daughter for sale out of the full sister of the Olympic show jumping stallion Tinka's Boy (by Zuidpool) ridden by Markus Fuchs. We see this mare line again more often in the collection, because a Levisto Z filly has been selected out of the 1.50m jumping mare Vantiels Esprit (by Baloubet du Rouet), a half-sister of Tinka's Boy and also mother of rising star Carrera VDL .

For Pleasure
Baloubet du Rouet took part in the Olympic Games twice with Rodrigo Pessoa and came home with an individual gold medal (2004) and team bronze (2000). A stallion who is not inferior to him in terms of sport and inheritance is For Pleasure, the winner of team gold at the Olympic Games in 1996 and 2000. And Prinsjesdag has also selected two foals from him: a For Pleasure son comes out of Gracelottie B (s. Nabab de Reve), a niece of Olympic show jumper Vindicat W (by Guidam), who won team gold in 2004 with the British team.

Genetically also very interesting is the offspring of Glock's London (2x and dam's sire 1x) and Berlin (2x), two top stallions who won the necessary medals with Gerco Schröder. London's regular teammate VDL Groep Verdi TN is represented in the auction by a son of Kicky Queen (Voltaire), the dam of the 1.60m Grand Prix showjumping stallion Tyson ridden by Leon Thijssen and half sister of the Grand Prix showjumper Nirvana ridden by Annet Willems. One of the many mare lines that shines with performance!

Finally, the name of Rolf-Göran Bengtsson's Casall ASK should not be missing from the list of top performing sires. The stallion who performs at the highest international level is represented by a stallion and a filly, both from very interesting dam lines.
