About - Kassander Van't Roosakker is well known in the professional equine industry, and his breeding speaks for itself. His dam is none other than the Grand Prix mare Electra van't Roosakker while her maternal grand-dam is none other than the international mare Usha van't Roosakker, dam of the crack mare Centoia van't Roosakker (aka Cella), Equador van 't Roosakker or promising young stallion George Z. Kassander's full sister, Kaprice van't Roosakker, won the Belgian Championship for 6 year olds. Kassander is described as an intelligent stallion with a positive mind, he finds every job easy and is a pleasure to work with.
Performace - His performance has blown people away, with Kassander having a dash more blood than his favourable dam he is capable of achieving great things. Having won his 5 year old class in Lanaken, many started realising this horse was something special. He continued to compete across the world and now with rider Gregory Wathelet he is competing up to 1.40m demonstrating his ability over a course and sheer passion for what he does.
Sire - Echo van 't Spieveld is the son of BWP ambassador Heartbreaker. After a successful international career under Peeter Geerink, Heartbreaker is also a top sire in breeding. In 2014 he was in sixth place in the WBFSH sire ranking. His second sire Heartbreaker was declared ‘Preferent’ in 2009 in recognition of his hugely successful offspring in the international scene. Heartbreaker himself was successful at grand prix level with Peter Geerink, and appeared on the WBFSH Sire Rankings for seven consecutive seasons (2009 - 2015). His influence in worldwide breeding is enormous. On the international scene, many of his offspring are competing at the highest level, including Bertram Allen’s Romanov II, who won four grands prix (Bordeaux, Dortmund, La Baule and Paris) in 2016.
Progeny - Kassander's offpsring are gradually making appearances on the showjumping scene, he already has a licensed son and we look forward to seeing what they become as they get older.
