A champion stallion producing star quality progeny
Bordeaux is the 'high flyer' of the FN breeding value estimation: with a total of 164 points, he is one of Germany's leading dressage sires.
He is already well known within the equine world, with his oldest progeny dominating the championships and auctions from the beginning.
At the Oldenburg championships in Rastede 2013, Biscaya OLD/Andreas Muller, Bluetooth/Eva Muller and Bella Laguna OLD/Klarissa Alexandra Liss took the first three places. Biscaya OLD then became vice champion at the Bundeschampionship in Warendorf and Bluetooth reached a high place in the final. When autumn came, Biscaya set the new price record of 300.000 Euros at the Oldenburg autumn auction in Vechta.
In 2014, Heide Queen OLD was Oldenburg vice champion in Rastede. Progeny of Bordeaux are convincing due to their exceptional movement. From his first crops many sons have already been licensed, amongst them Barroso, Bergolio, Buckingham, Buenos Dias, Bourgogne and Beckham GT. In 2014, Buckingham was the superior champion of his 70-day test in Adelheidsdorf.
Following a triumphant win at the KWPN licensing, Bordeaux won the stallion performance test in Ermelo. In 2012, ridden by Eva Muller, he was fourth in the finals of the World Championships of six year old dressage horses in Verden. In the winter of 2012/13 he qualified, as a result of his outstanding wins at stallion competitions around the Netherlands, for the finals of his age group in s?Hertogenbosch. Bordeaux was the favourite and won the competition with a clear margin. In 2014, he has been winning internationally up to Prix St. Georges. In terms of genetics, Bordeaux is unique. He is bred from one of the most successful dam lines in the world with the best of the Holstein, Oldenburg, Westphalia and Trakehner populations coming together. The sire United finished his stallion performance test in Ermelo with the highest result ever achieved at that time: 9,5 for trot and canter and for his disposition as a dressage horse. With Krack C and Partout, ridden by Anky van Grunsven, two more internationally successful Grand Prix horses stem from this pedigree. Bordeaux' dam sire Gribaldi was internationally successful with Edward Gal at Grand Prix level and sire to a series of Grand Prix horses, such as Girasol, Sisther de Jeu, Peter Pan and Painted Black, amongst others. In the third generation comes the dressage hero Donnerhall, which underlines the genetic disposition for dressage to a spectacular maximum. His grand dam Leandra M, ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud was successful up to St. Georges level. Bordeaux is a descendant of the Westphalian foundation lineage of Dodona (Familie de Baey, Lemgo), which produced the Olympic champion Ahlerich/Dr. Reiner Klimke and Rembrandt/Nicole Uphoff as well as the foundation stallion Rubinstein I and winner of the Olympic Silver Medal Amon/Annemarie Sanders-Keyzer.
