He is a handsome, versatile stallion with tremendous athletic ability, excellent conformation and is a loose active mover.

Coolcorron Cool Diamond carries the genes of the greatest bloodlines in the world, on both sides of his pedigree. His sire Glidawn Diamond, by King of Diamonds, competed himself and is full brother to the stallion Diamond Lad (sire of Heather Blaze, winner of many competitions in Britain and America).
Glidawn Diamond’s full sister Kildalton Rose is the dam of the multiple international winner Convent Hill Diamond (British Speed Grand Prix, Pavortti Speed Champion etc). His grandsire King of Diamonds was perhaps the most successful sire of Irish and world class sport horses. King of Diamond’s portfolio of international progeny includes Mill Pearl (Olympic medallist), Special Envoy (Aachen Grand Prix) and Millstreet Ruby. King of Diamonds has proved time after time that he is a successful sire of sires. He is responsible for numerous stallions which continue to impact on world sport horse breeding, eg Hopes are High (1998 winner Du Maurier GP, GP of Dublin, Dijon & King George V Gold Cup, Hickstead 1999.)
Coolcorron Cool Diamonds dam is by Bronte who was the sire of many international show jumpers. Bronti’s dam by Nordlys is the sire of Mullacres (dam of Cruising) and Ambassador (Olympic Gold, Italy.) Nasrullah appears 3 times in the extended pedigree of CCD.
Coolcorron Cool Diamonds first crop arrived in 1998 and were prolific prize winners in the Show Ring. Now his eldest look exceptional under saddle, with the combination of their willingness to work and obvious inherited ability. His foals inherit his size, movement and outstanding disposition. He is the perfect cross for any equestrian discipline. He will have 5 y o horses on the circuit this year. Demand has been building up and the prices achieved by his foals are in indication of the value which buyers from both at home and overseas place on the progeny of a true performance stallion.
In 1999 he had Grand Prix wins at Millstreet in November, Windsor in May 2000, and third and second placings at Deauville, Barcelona, New York and Genoa. He jumped one of the only 4 double clears in the American Nations Cup at Washington in 2001 to clinch the victory for Ireland. The success continued to Madison Square Gardens, New York where he was 3rd in the Welcome Grand Prix in the same year. The Fall Circuit Tour came to a spectacular close in Toronto, Canada in the November when he was part of the Winning Irish Team that triumphed in the Canadian Nations Cup. Coolcorron Cool Diamond had the honour of being the only approved Irish stallion competing in the Samsung Nations Cup Series in 2000, helping Ireland achieve a world record 10th victory under Robert Splaine his rider. In total he has competed on four winning Nation Cup Teams up to the end of 2002, at Lummen, Rotterdam, Washington and Toronto.

On the Sunshine Tour he won two classes and was placed five times in eight competitions, proving that Irish traditional breeding can still cut out a place for itself on the international scene. In May 2003 at the Grand Prix De La Ville De La Baule CSIO he came 4th for Ireland behind Luidam for Ireland, For Pleasure for Germany and Dileme De Cephe for France. Having won the Grand Prix qualifier from a field of 60 and going on to finish 4th in the CSIO*****Grand Prix, he brought the crowd to their feet when he delivered the first of only three double clear rounds in the entire Superleague Nations Cup.
He was winner of the Grand Prix of Switzerland in St Gallen and two days later he took the Nations Cup from the home side in the first ever Superleague head to head with Markus Fuchs and Tinka’s Boy. Then he shone in one of the world’s toughest showjumping challenges in Aachen, Germany delivering a second round clear to contribute to Ireland’s first victory in sixteen years.
Due to his superb effort at the European Championships in Germany in August he helped secure Olympic qualification for Ireland in Athens in 2004. Ireland was ahead of both Great Britain and Italy, a vital position needed to qualify. Robert Splaines brilliant achievements in 2003 with Coolcorron Cool Diamond have earned him The Irish Field Award 2003. In 2004, due to injury, he was out of competition for most of the year which also kept him out of the Olympic Games.
In 2005 Coolcorron Cool Diamond finished 3rd in the Sunshine Tours most prestigious class, The Invitational Grand Prix at Vejer de la Frontera in Spain. He jumped two fantastic clear rounds but was eliminated at the last due to rider error in failing to jump two fences in the jump off track!
