The Grand Prix jumper Dallas has a very strong sire-line. His father Douglas (Darco x Capitol) excites with his offspring who now are jumping at Grand Prix level. Then we find Heartbreaker, Mr. Blue and Nimmerdor, who have more than proven themselves in sport and breeding. The thoroughbred Erdball xx gives blood and hardness, but was also sire of many Grand Prix jumpers.
Dam, Wonder A.S. also foaled Grand Slam VDL, the all-time top scorer of the KWPN Stallion Performance Test with 90 points and last summer he belonged to the top 10 of the Dutch best jumping 6-year olds. Great-grand dam Bonette carries the ‘Preferent and Prestatie’ designations and has produced Grand Prix show jumper Annette and another 1.35m show jumper. Bonnette is the full sister to the international show jumper Drummer.
Dallas is a modern stallion with good gaits, jumps with very good take off, much scope and is very careful. Dallas underwent his stallion test in Adelheidsdorf, Germany, to pass the 70 days test. He received good marks for his jumping - averaging 8.53, to place 2nd in the Jumper Stallions ranking. His free jump score was a 9, jumping under saddle an 8.5 and for potential as a jumping horse a 9.08, giving him the highest score of the group for this section.
Dallas builds on his potential under saddle and has already been successful with Jur Vrieling. In the stallion competition at 1.30m/1.35m level the pair won three out of three competitions - Ermelo, Roosendaal and Zuidbroek.
Their successes continue at higher level. Dallas was 4th in the World Cup and 8th in the Grand Prix of Leszno. In La Coruna he placed 4th in a 1.45m and he won a 1.45m in Arezzo. Besides these he placed: 2nd 1.40m Ommen, 4th 1.45m Ommen and Treffen, 4th 1.40m Maastricht, 5th 1.45m Treffen, 8th 1.45m Den Bosch and Treffen etc.
In 2016 Dallas won the puissance in Falsterbo by jumping the wall set at 1.90m. There were additional victories in Drachten and in Buitenpost.
The oldest offspring of Dallas are very appealing - good types and jumping with quick reflexes, great take off and scope. Irvington was approved by the KWPN. Dacantos was approved and designated ‘premium’ by the Oldenburger Verband. He scored an 8,54 for his stallion test in Adelheidsdorf. Itendro was Champion of the VWF free jumping Championship. Icarla was reserve champion of the jumpingbred mares at the CK Overijssel. Mister Mikado was reserve champion of the CK Drenthe.
