The sire of this first embryo is the world-famous Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z; one of Daniel Deusser’s top horses and winner of the Grand Prix competitions of Oslo and Lyon and the World Cups of Madrid and Bordeaux.

Exceptional talent El Barone 111 Z meets Usha van ‘t Roosakker family

This embryo was bred out of the promising mare Anusha Key SR Z – a daughter of Armitages Boy out of the very successful mare Grand Cru van ‘t Hagenhof. This Bentley van de Heffinck daughter produced several international showjumpers and is a daughter of the famous Babbe van ‘t Roosakker – the dam or granddam of top showjumpers such as Erco van ‘t Roosakker, Dulhan de la Roque, Giorgio van’ t Hagenhof, Geena, Jiva Imperio Egipcio, Kheros van ‘t Hoogeinde, Mystic van’ t Hoogeinde and many more. Great-granddam Usha van ‘t Roosakker is the founder of the Van ’t Roosakker dynasty.

Aganix du Seigneur, Hickstead & the damline of Carthago

Embryo no. 3 is sired by up-and-coming stallion Aganix du Seigneur out of a dam by the legendary Olympic champion Hickstead. Through great-grandsire Numero Uno, the pedigree of this embryo goes back to the Grand Prix jumping mare A-Cover Girl – herself successful with Sweden’s Thomas Nilsson and the full sister of two-time Olympic jumper and top sire Carthago. Combined with Aganix du Seigneur, dam Exceptional already produced the extremely talented approved stallion Asterix de Couleur.

Olympic champion Big Star & 1.60m winner Andrea join forces

The fourth embryo in the Prinsjesdag Online collection was bred out of the 1.60m winner Andrea –  one of Gert Jan Bruggink’s most successful showjumpers ever. This competitive daughter of Marome NW won no less than 30 international classes ridden by Bruggink and later Abdullah Al Sharbatly, including the Grand Prix competitions of Eindhoven, Dortmund, Bremen, Beervelde and Oldenburg. Andrea also successfully participated in the 2014 World Cup Final in Lyon. The sire of this embryo is the world-famous Big Star – the stallion who ridden by Nick Skelton won Olympic team gold in 2012, won the Grand Prix of Aachen in 2013 and in 2016 became individual Olympic champion in Rio de Janeiro.

Chacco Blue x Cornet Obolensky; need we say more?

The last embryo of this edition’s collection combines the leading sires Chacco Blue and Cornet Obolensky. Chacco Blue has been the undisputed number one of the WBFSH Sire Ranking for several years thanks to world-famous offspring such as Explosion W, Calisto Blue, Chalou, Chacco Kid, Blue Movie and many others. Cornet Obolensky is one of the most influential sires of his generation and is currently represented by world-class showjumpers such as Clooney, Balou du Reventon, Comme Il Faut and Cornado NRW. This embryo’s dam Cornet-Terma produced the top talent Lykke Li-Terma Z ridden by Egypt’s Nayel Nassar. Granddam Soterma is the dam of the Grand Prix jumping stallion Brainpower ridden by USA’s Charlie Jacobs.

Exclusive opportunity: 1 straw of Chacco Blue

Finally, Prinsjesdag Online also offers an exclusive straw of frozen semen of the one-and-only Chacco Blue: the undisputed number one in the WBFSH Sire Ranking. Unfortunately, Chacco Blue died at the age of fourteen in 2012, and so there is hardly any of his frozen semen available. With this straw you have the chance to use Chacco Blue for breeding and maybe produce a horse like Explosion W or Calisto Blue.

On Monday 16th of March, these six lots will be auctioned through Prinsjesdag Online, so register now and stay tuned for this exclusive auction. Biddings start from 09:00 P.M. CET and for more information, you can contact
