Icoon VDL ninth in CSIO 5* Grand Prix in Rotterdam

Rotterdam - Icoon VDL (Bubalu x Cardento) and Hessel Hoekstra (Ned) have achieved a beautiful ninth place in the CSIO 5* Grand Prix in Rotterdam (NED) over 1.60m.

Last May, Icoon VDL and Hoekstra shone in the jumping arena of Eindhoven, where they managed to name the CSI3* 1.55m-Grand Prix. In addition, the successful combination also achieved second place in the CSI2* 1.50m-Grand Prix van Geesteren in June, and won the CSI2* Grand-Prix over 1.45m in Bonheiden (BEL) for the third time in April. And those were not the only successes of 2022: in February the descendant of Zirocco Blue won the CSI3* World Cup Grand Prix over 1.55m in Krakow (Pol).

Icoon VDL was bred by the VDL Stud and now in joint ownership of the VDL Stud and Stal Wiefferink.

Mademoiselle-A (Corland x Cardento), under the saddle of Jodie Hall Mcateer (GBR), won the 1.45m in Rotterdam. In another 1.45m competition at the five -star competition in Rotterdam, this great combination became third.
This successful ten-year-old Corland descendant, who was bred by Luc Aerts (BEL), was fifth in CSI2* 1.45m-Grand Prix from Lanaken in April.

Famariloma (Azteca x Ahorn), also driven by Hessel Hoekstra, won the 1.45m and was fourth in another 1.45m section (immediately on time).
This twelve-year-old fox mare was bred by J.J.T. Baas & G.A. Baas-Gritter (Ned).

The also twelve-year-old mare Fliute Fluiter (Zirocco Blue x Animo) and Jack Ansems (Ned) became third in the 1.45m.
J. van de Gevel (Ned) bred Fliere Fluiter, who was already good for several Grand Prixs and has had a very good performance at the NK jumping in Deurne. Also in the second five-star country competition for the jumping riders in Sankt Gallen, Switzerland, Fliere Fluiter under Ansems was part of the Dutch team, which set up no less than € 40,000 with second place behind the Swiss.

In Rotterdam, Halilee (Zirocco Blue x Larome) remained in the 1.45m double clear with Lars Kersten (Ned) and achieved fourth place. This striking ten-year-old fungus, bred by Pieter Kersten (Ned), recently also won the CSI2* 1.45m-Grand Prix in Grote Brogel in Belgium.
