Arezzo’s sire line is unique with five generations of Grand Prix jumpers in a row: Chin Chin, Heartbreaker, Renville, Jasper and Akteur - and all are sires of Grand Prix jumpers. His dam line exemplifies performance. The most famous representatives are Dragonfly (Nicole Simpson) and Nacorde (Andre Thieme) - the latter winning the Hamburg Derby three times. Both horses are half-brothers to Arezzo’s dam, Sarjolijn ‘ster, prestatie’. As well as Arezzo she brought the international show jumper Zodermus and two 1.30m jumpers. As a three years old, Arezzo was Champion of the KWPN Spring Stallion Test receiving a 9 for his reflexes, scope and talent as jumper.
