Grand Slam, 2017 L. de Boer

Grand Slam is the all-time top scorer of the KWPN Stallion Test. Brought to this height with a sire lineage of only foundation performance stallions. Sire Cardento won silver medals at the WEG, the European Championship and the Olympic Games plus has many offspring competing at the top: Zacramento, Cue Channa and Cafino as examples. Grandsire, Heartbreaker, is recognized as one of world’s best sires. The third sire in Grand Slam’s pedigree is the legendary Mr. Blue, who jumped at Grand Prix level and produced top horses like Simon and Zirocco Blue. Numbers 4 and 5 in this pedigree are ‘Stallion of the Century’ Nimmerdor and top thoroughbred Erdball xx. They provide the base for top performers and producers like Apollo, Just Malone, Goldenbridge, Heartbreaker, Ahorn, etc.

Dam, Wonder A.S., foaled the approved stallion Dallas VDL, who jumps successfully under Jur Vrieling in Grand Prix and World Cup classes. Great-grand dam, Bonnette, is ‘Preferent and Prestatie’ and produced the Grand Prix jumper Annette. Bonnette is the full sister to the international jumper Drummer.

Palmares

Grand Slam is a complete stallion with an amazing mentality. He stands out with his technique, reflexes and scope. Grand Slam achieved the all-time top score of 90 points in the KWPN Stallion Test and became convincingly the Champion. For technique and reflexes he earned a 9.5; for scope, rideability, attitude and talent as a jumper he received 9’s; for canter and balance he received an 8.

Grand Slam’s sport career is on track and he is developing himself beautifully. In the stallion competitions, Grand Slam performed solidly with good technique and repeatedly clear rounds. This consistency (at the age of 5!) resulted in a 4th place for the final results. He then shone at the Dutch Championship for 6 year olds taking his place among the best of his age group having finished by going clear in all rounds to end in 6th place overall.

Offspring

Grand Slam’s first foals have made an excellent impression with much presence and expression, solid conformation and outstanding movements. They canter with great balance, power and stride. Moonlight placed 3rd at the CK Friesland and Mexx van het Noordhof was 3rd at the CK Zeeland. In 2016 Liber T placed 4th in the final of the National Foal Championship. Four offspring were selected for the finals of the Provincial Foal Show of Friesland: 2nd was Legend SMH, Liber T placed 4th, Lotteminka placed 9th and Lannamieka VDL placed 12th. At the CK Overijssel Legend VDP finished in 3rd place. Daughter Kiverna was crowned Champion of the CK Zeeland in 2015.

His oldest offspring are 3 years old. They are horses with a good exterior, three good gaits and a great jumping technique. From this first crop two of his sons were selected for the KWPN Stallion Test.

Jumping index KWPN: 165.
