About - All eyes are on Grandorado, one of the most exciting prospects of his age group. This tall, large-framed stallion offers size, scope, technique and trainability in spades and is already proving successful in sport.
Performance - Grandorado won his KWPN performance test, and then went on to win the finals of the KWPN Stallion Competition in both 2016 and 2017. As a seven-year-old, Grandorado was reserve World Champion in the finals at Lanaken, and is now successfully campaigning at 1.40m level under Willem Greve, winning the Neumünster Youngster Cup in early 2019.
Sire - His grand-prix winning sire Eldorado has a pedigree filled with some of the greatest stallions in modern history, with Clinton, Heartbreaker, and Landgraf all among his ancestors. Eldorado's sire, dam and both grandsires jumped at international grand prix, a rare and desirable accolade for a breeding stallion. Eldorado won the Roosendaal and Arnhem grands prix, was second in the 1.50m class at St. Lo, and sixth in the Hickstead Bunn Leisure Trophy and in the Pezinok World Cup qualifier. In 2011 he was second in the VION Cup in Ermelo.
Damline - Dam Charmieque also jumped at 1.40m level with Willem Greve, and scored 83 points in a mare performance with the KWPN. Grandsire Carolus II, hugely successful as a damsire, jumped at Grand Prix level with both Thomas Voss and Schuyler Riley and has produced many international jumpers. Third sire Baloubet du Rouet was an Olympic gold medallist and three-time World Champion under Rodrigo Pessoa.
