About - A large stallion with a good foundation and outstanding basic gaits, coming from strong hindquarters with high elasticity and always in rhythm.
Performance - At his 30-day test in Neustadt-Dosse, Borsalino scored 8.52, which was the best finishing score of any of the dressage stallions. At Schlieckau in 2016, Borsalino was outstanding, scoring 9 for trot, 9.5 for canter, 8 for walk, 8.7 for rideability, and 8.8 for overall impression, with a total score of 8.89.
Sire - British-bred father Boston was champion of his British Warmblood Society licensing, and finished a very good 30-day performance test in Neustadt-Dosse. Boston's father Jazz leading the world ranking of dressage horses for many years and was KWPN Stallion of the Year in 2011. He won many international grands prix tests, and is the sire of multiple international grand prix horses, his most famous probably being Jerich Parzival, who ruled international dressage with his rider Adelinde Cornelissen for years, including winning individual silver and team bronze at the London 2012 Olympics. At 19, Parzival appeared on the Dutch team at the Rio Olympic Games shortly before his retirement from the international stage. Boston's dam combines the jumping lines of Flemmingh and Furioso II. Boston sadly died as just a 6-year-old after intestinal illness. He was based with Isabell Werth at the time, and in his three seasons at stud was able to produce nine licensed sons and three State Premium mares.
Damline - Borsalino's dam line received many important premiums and has provided numerous sports horses. Damsire Fidermark was victorious at grand prix, and promoted the line of Florestan internationally. The grandmother provided Rostropowitsch, who was successful at grand prix with rider Christoph Koschel. Through Coriograf B and Landadel, this elite dam line carries the excellent Holstein blood that was positively influencing the Holstein and Oldenburg breeding for years. Especially noteworthy is outstanding Furioso II, who formed the modern sports horse in many ways and who is represented in Borsalino's blood three times.
