Top placings in the rankings of the best show jumping and eventing sires in the world!
Balou du Rouet has done it again! For the fourth time in a row, he is placed in the top 15 and top 12 of both the WBFSH ranking of the world’s best show jumping and the WBFSH ranking of the world’s best eventing sires.
Balou du Rouet owes this status of the most successful son of his famous sire, the Olympic and three-time World Cup winner Baloubet du Rouet, to the large number of successful offspring he has produced, led by the individual World Championship and European Championship team bronze medallist as well as World Cup eighth-placed show jumper Bianca/Steve Guerdat/SUI and the European Championship team gold and silver medallist and individual ninth-placed eventer Billy the Red/Kristina Cook/GBR. Further guarantors of success are: Saura de Fondcombe/Nadja Peter Steiner/SUI, European Championship team bronze winner, Brilliant du Rouet/Liubov Kochetova/RUS, World Championship participant, Babalou/Darragh Kenny/IRL, placed fourth in Aachen as well as Bantou Balou OLD/Laura Klaphake, Baloutinue/Adam Prudent/USA, Botakara OLD and Baloubet/both ridden by Mario Stevens, Balenciana K/Edouardo Schmitz/SUI, Tiger Lily/Jessica Springsteen/USA, Chaloubet/Johan-Sebastian Gulliksen/NOR, Balou’s Fly High/Isabella Russekoff/USA and Balou Rubin R/Pius Schwizer/SUI, Balance/Toni Haßmann, Botaro/Christian Kukuk, who were all successful in Grand Prix competitions and Nations Cups, and Balou’s Mascot M/Pia Münker, placed third in the eventing German Championships. For the athletes registered in Germany alone, the total prize money won is above 4.61 million Euros.
The winner of the Grand Prix of Munich, Balve and Spangenberg, Balzaci/Felix Haßmann, Baccord/Gerrit Nieberg and Balous Bellini/Lutz Gripshöver, stand out in sport amongst the 70 licensed sons of Balou du Rouet. From a breeding point of view, the premium stallion of the Holstein licensing Baloubetto, sold for 90,000 Euros, the OS Reserve Champion Mare Honey Star and the Champion Foal and Reserve Champion Colt of the Goldfever Ring at the German Foal Championships also deserve to be mentioned.
Balou du Rouet started his own career with the final score of 9.2 at the 30-day test in Vechta. After serial victories in young horses classes, he won the qualification round at the German Championships with a score of 9.2, came eighth in the final of the six-year-olds and won show jumping competitions up to 1.50m.
His dam Georgia also produced the licensed stallion Balissimo (by Baloubet du Rouet), the licensed stallion and German Champion Cornet’s Balou (by Cornet Obolensky) and Chatinue (by Chacco-Blue)/Luis Alejandro Plascencia/MEX, who was successful in 1.60m show jumping competitions. Georgia’s daughter and granddaughters produced numerous international show jumping horses and the licensed stallions Chageorge (by Chacco-Blue) and Vivagran (by Vivant).
The Oldenburg dam’s sire Continue is also the dam’s sire of Antello Z/Cameron Hanley/IRL, who took part in the World Championships and European Championships, Baloufina/Cian O’Connor/IRL and Camilla/Denis Lynch/IRL.
His grand-dam Georgette II also produced Sandrissimo (by Sandro), licensed stallion and successful in 1.40m show jumping competitions.
The sires Domino, Gepard and Granit, who appear in the earlier generations of Balou du Rouet’s pedigree, have had a lasting influence on the mare base of Paul Schockemöhle’s stud.
The licensed stallions Daddy Cool, Le Sandro and Lord Sandro also descend from the Westphalian line of Filmkunde.
