GEM vd RILOO : is, like Gem T, a son of Gemini xx (clone). His dam Gordon vd Riloo produced already a 1.40m jumping horse. Gem is related to the approved stallion Dublin van Overis (Darco – 1.60m) who now will be awarded the title of elite stallion and will be present for the houring during the Stallion Selection Show. Apart from approved stallions, the family produced good sport horses, such as Veron vd Riloo (Kashmir van Schuttershof – 1.60m), Egge’s Arctic (Castillion – 1.60m) and Forst vd Riloo ( Kashmir van Schuttershof – 1.50m).
KIEK HUM : is a son of BWP ambassador Tangelo vd Zuuthoeve. Jumping genes are clearly present on the dam’s side. Granddam Jilonka M jumped 1.30m classes herself and produced two jumping cracks, one of them being Ailonka (Tampa). Greatgranddam Rilonka gave birth to some 1.30m jumping horses. Further in this line we see not only jumping horses, but also some eventers, such as Unexpected (Indorado) inCIC2*.
TIC TAC ORANGE : belongs to the Oldenburg Blankanese line. Tic Tac’s dam Champagne de Hus a daughter of Banda de Hus, whom we all know as been ridden by Gregory Wathelet and Kevin Staut (1.60m). Banda passes on her jumping genes, as it appears from three international jumpers and an approved son. Greatgranddam Blankonette III is an Oldenburg State Premium and elite mare. Her son Cool Down (Catoki) jumps 1.60m classes under Ludger Beerbaum. Elexir de Hus (L’Arc de Triomphe) is only one example of an approved stallion out of this line. Some 1.60m jumping horses belonging to this line are Blankonette II (Corlando), Bugsbunny (Granulit) and Lord Pepsi (Lord Pezi).
KOULON : also a son of Toulon, this time out of the Holsteiner line 776. To that line belong also the appoved stallion Lordanos (Landos – 1.50m) and the sport horses Gamine van ‘t Steentje (Cicero – 1.60m) and Argentino vd Zuuthoeve (Thunder vd Zuuthoeve – 1.60m). But also in the first generations we see high qualities. His dam Orchidee D jumped herself at 1.30m level and gave a 1.35m jumping offspring. Granddam Grandis D produced Picasso des Bles (Cassini I – 1.60m) and also greatgranddam Sofia gave international jumpers.

The same goes for the Kannan products Baldo DS and Athena DS, for Wisky Scott Royale (Wonderful van ‘t Beugelhof) and Pinocchio 203 (Pinocchio).
VITUS : he is the only Verdi son in this auction. On the dam’s side, Vitus goes back to the Hanoverian line Norm, which produced a lot of sport horses and approved stallions like Polygraf (Polydor), Sandokan (Stakkato – 1.45m) and Liberal Jmen (Lancer III). Granddam La Gracia is the mother of Candyman (Caretello B – 1.45m).
