BWP Stallion Approval 2019
Part 1: 154 Stallions registered for the BWP Stallion Approval 2019
Already last week the BWP announced that their registrations for the stallion inspection & nbsp; would break all records. And in the meanwhile, they have presented the participants.
No fewer than 154 stallions will take their chance during the second phase of the BWP Stallion Approval, which will be held from 17 to 19 January at the Azelhof in Lier, Belgium. Only the 3-year-olds stallions will be presented during this second phase. In the option jumping, 70 BWP and 34 non-BWP horses were registered, while for the option dressage three BWP and 12 non-BWP stallions are entered.
The 'older' stallions start directly at the Third Phase, which is held in the Zilveren Spoor in Moorsele, Belgium from 14 to 16 March. In total these are 35 stallions, of which 7 in the option dressage . These numbers together produces a total of 154 registered stallions for the BWP Stallion Inspection 2019!
Sires A look at the list of participants shows us that both Cicero Z van Paemel and Cornet Obolensky have 5 offspring present during the second phase. Comme Il Faut, Kannan and Mosito van het Hellehof are just behind with 4 offspring. Noteworthy is that Mosito van het Hellehof will be presenting his first offspring to the general public.
Looking at both the second and third phase, Cornet Obolensky even has 6 offspring competing, while Kannan rises to a total of 5 offspring. Quint vh Maarlo Z and Vigo d'Arsouilles follow behind with 4 offspring over both phases.
Mosito van het Hellehof is not the only stallion to present his first offspring in 2019, also Casillas van de Helle, Di Cantero Van Ter Hulst Z, Heavy Metal, Marschal Fields 111, Matisse de Mariposa, Hermantico and Maestro vd Bisschop will debute with their offspring.
On the dam's side, Heartbreaker is in the lead with no less than 6 offspring. In addition, the blood of Darco and Diamant de Semilly remains very popular: they both deliver 5 offspring as damsire, while Baloubet du Rouet, Carthago and Quidam de Revel follow with 4 offspring. Top Stallion Auction As usual, the BWP also organizes the BWP Top Stallion Auction during its stallion approval. The concept hereof is slightly different this year. The stallions still have to pass the second day of the stallion approval before they can actually take part in the live auction. But the stallions who didn't pass through, will get the chance to be auctioned online from 19-21 January.
31 stallions are currently registered for this auction. The complete collection can be viewed here. Next week we will discuss the dam lines of the BWP stallions, so be sure to take a look!
