About - Winningmood is an absolutely outstanding grand prix stallion, and we are thrilled to be offering him to UK breeders for the first time in 2017 (please see special terms above). He is a compact, powerful stallion with amazing rideability and adjustability, whose offspring are already proving to be exceptional.
Performance - Winningmood has enjoyed an incredible international grand prix career, with wins and placings all over the globe. On the Global Champions Tour alone, he has won over €530,000, taking top spot in the Vienna and Madrid Grand Prix legs during his nine seasons on the tour. He has competed at two World Cup Finals, placing 4th in Geneva in 2010, and three consecutive European Championships, in Windsor, Madrid and Herning, finishing 9th in Madrid and 16th in Herning individually. Among his other success are winning the Basel, Lyon and Sao Paulo Grands Prix, 2nd in the Paris Saut Hermes Grand Prix, 3rd in the Stuttgart and Oslo (2011) World Cup qualifiers and 4th in the World Cup qualifiers in Oslo (2013), Bordeaux and Helsinki, in addition to 4th in the prestigious Aachen Warsteiner Prize and 5th in the 's-Hertogenbosch Rolex Grand Prix.
Sire - Darco was seventh individually at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, and he led the WBFSH for four consecutive years (2008-2011). Among his countless successful offspring - he has sired more than 200 grand prix horses - are double Olympic gold-medallist Sapphire, grand prix stallion Parco, Nonstop, Up To Date M, Bamako de Muze, VDL Douglas, and Foxhunter champion Unbelievable Darco.
Damline - Winningmood's damline is exceptional. His dam Unellie has produced nine international jumping horses, three of them at grand prix, including another licensed son, Chippendale Z (by Cento). Her third grand prix offspring is Richi Rich III (by Chatman), winner of the Olympia and HOYS Puissance, who in turn is the dam of grand prix jumper Explosiev III (by Action-Breaker). Richi Rich's full sister has produced a grand prix jumper of her own, Shahanez (by Chellano Z), winner of the Six Bar in Saint Lo.
Progeny - Winningmood's progeny speak for themselves. He has more than 150 already succesful in sport, including several a grand prix. Already in 2017, his son Eliot DWS has won the €10,000 1.50m class in Vejer La Frontera, and Winningmoods success has not been limited to showjumping - he has several progeny eventing on the international circuit as well, including CIC3* mare Girl Power, and CIC2* winner Vendredi Biats, who has finished in the top 4 of seven CIC2*s in the space of a year, and was 7th at the World Young Horse Championships at Le Lion d'Angers as a six-year-old.
