Bringing together the great Bordeaux with a top-class performance damline is a recipe for success. This embryo was bred out of the Westphalian registered mare Rivanna – a daughter of the Grand Prix produder Rheingau who brings in the valuable genes of Romadour II, the founder of the famous R-line. On the dam’s side, Rivanna goes back to the successful Lady Reveil family via the German foundation sire Florestan I and Phoenix.
In breeding, Rivanna already produced the Westphalian approved Small Tour stallion Superio and the ZZ-Zwaar classified Soliste. In the KWPN IBOP-test Soliste scored 80.5 points, including an 8.5 for canter. This embryo’s granddam Florett is the dam of Small Tour horses Citho and Sir Florett.
This embryo’s sire – the Grand Prix stallion Bordeaux – combines the genes of Krack C son United with Gribaldi, Donnerhall and Rousseau. Furthermore, Bordeaux was bred out of the famous family of Olympic champion Rembrandt and has produced several Grand Prix dressage horses in addition to more than 30 approved sons.
