Edinburgh takes victory Stallion Competition Zuidbroek
ZUIDBROEK - The KWPN-approved Edinburgh 'finally' took the victory in the Blom Stallion Competition in Zuidbroek. Edinburgh and Kristian Houwen were in third place in both Ermelo and Roosendaal, but in Zuidbroek they crowned their potential with a victory. Edinburgh was auctioned in 2009 at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag.
Breeders Evert Meijer and Gerard Lindeboom from Dalfsen bred Edinburgh – son of Vleut out of the Darco daughter Olympic Queen. Loyal investor on Prinsjesdag Jos Althuijzen purchased the Vleut son at the foal auction and now co-owns Tyson's extremely talented cousin with Jos Houwen. Both at the age of four and five, Edinburgh won the KNHS/KWPN Stallion Competition under Kristian Houwen and Edinburgh will once again enter the final competition in Den Bosch as one of the favorites this year. It is also striking that Edinburgh won the stallion competition in Zuidbroek in both 2014 and 2015!
“It was about time again”, laughed Kristian Houwen after his victory with Edinburgh. "It's great that Edinburgh has won here again, it's a great collaborator."
Foal Auction Prinsjesdag congratulates the breeders Gerard Lindeboom and Evert Meijer, the rider Kristian Houwen and the owners Jos Althuijzen and Jos Houwen with this great result!
