Produces top horses for international competitions one after another
Balou du Rouet is not only by far the most successful son of his famous sire, the Olympic champion and three-time World Cup winner Baloubet du Rouet, but also appears once again among the top 20 of the world’s best jumper sires according to the WBFSH ranking. He is also one of the 20 best eventing sires in the world. Balou du Rouet owes this record, now set for three years, to the large number of successful offspring he has produced, led by the individual World Championship and European Championship bronze medallist as well as World Cup eighth-placed show-jumper Bianca/Steve Guerdat/SUI and the European Championship 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 Balou Rubin R/Pius Schwizer/SUI, Balance/Toni Haßmann and Baloubet/Mario Stevens etc. For the athletes registered in Germany alone, the total prize money won is above 4.37 million euros.
The winner of the Grand Prix of Munich, Balve, Spangenberg, Balzaci/Felix Haßmann, followed by Baccord/Gerrit Nieberg and Balous Bellini/Lutz Gripshöver, stand out in sport among the 66 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 Reserve Champion Colt and Champion Colt of the Goldfever Ring at the German Foal Championships have recently been added to the list of his successful offspring.
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 3*.
His dam Georgia also produced Cornet’s Balou (by Cornet Obolensky), licensed stallion and German Champion, and Chatinue (by Chacco-Blue)/Patrick Döller, successful at 3* 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.
