Wonder A.S.  Heartbreaker 
Sonette 
Grand Slam Ermelo 2016, L. de Boer

Grand Slam is the all-time top scorer of the KWPN Stallion Test and has a pedigree to dream of with only foundation performance stallions as sires. Sire, Cardento won silver medals at the WEG, the European Championship and the Olympic Games and is in the top 10 of the WBFSH ranking for Show Jumping Sires. At the most recent World Equestrian Games no less than six offspring of Cardento participated. Grand sire Heartbreaker is also one of world’s best sires and KWPN Horse of the Year. 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. Number 4 and 5 in the pedigree are ‘Stallion of the Century’ Nimmerdor and top thoroughbred Erdball xx. They provide the basis for top horses and producers like Apollo, Just Malone, Goldenbridge, Heartbreaker, Ahorn etc.

Dam Wonder A.S. foaled the approved stallion Dallas VDL, who jumps successfully at international level under Jur Vrieling. Great-grand dam, Bonnette, is ‘Preferent and Prestatie’ and produced the Grand Prix jumper Annette plus Climax and Zilmax - 1.45m and 1.35m jumpers respectively. 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.

In the stallion competition Grand Slam performs very consistently with good technique. He jumped four clear rounds, including the finals at ’s Hertogenbosch.

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. 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 Championship of Overijssel Legend VDP finished in 3rd place. Daughter Kiverna was crowned Champion of the Central Foal Show of Zeeland in 2015.
