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 already showed a lot of potential under the saddle as a young horse. As a 6-year old he was unbeatable in the stallion competition class Z / ZZ and scored three consecutive victories in Ermelo, Roosendaal and Zuidbroek. The successes are now being continued at a higher level. Dallas won the Puissance of Oslo in 2018 and finished second in two main categories at the five-star competition in Helsinki. He was also placed in 1.50m classes in Maastricht, Bordeaux, Drachten, Stuttgart and Shanghai. In 2017 Dallas was fourth in the World Cup of Leszno, where he earned an eighth place in the Grand Prix. Also in 2016, Dallas showed all of its huge power when he wrote the Puissance of Falsterbo by name.
The oldest offspring of Dallas look good. They have beautiful models and jump with quick reflexes, a lot of print and power. The stallion Dacantos, approved by the Oldenburger Verband, was sold at the auction of Holger Hetzel for no less than 950,000 euros to the Poden Farms of the Moffit family, who sponsored the British top rider Ben Maher. At the KWPN, Dallas' sons Kallas and Irvington VDL were approved. His offspring Intro HK also won the Hendrix competition for five-year-olds in Reuver, while son Irvington VDL gained ninth place in the final for five-year-old jumping horses at the World Championships in Lanaken.
At the inspections, his daughter Khedira became third in the Central Inspection of North Holland and Itendro became Champion of the VWF free jumping championships in 2017. Icarla became reserve champion of the jumping mares at the CK Overijssel. Mister Mikado became champion of the jumping foals of the CK Drenthe.
Dallas meets the PROK and Roaring standards of the KWPN. His offspring are registered in the foal book by the KWPN.
