Glasgow van't Merelsnest
Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest is an exceptional and interestingly bred stallion. Sire Nabab de Rêve and grand sire Darco have both had successful careers in Grand Prix competitions to include World Cups and World Championships. They are fathers to top horses like Sapphire and the World Champion Vigo d’Arsouilles.
Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest has a superlative dam line. Mother Wendelina competed herself at international Grand Prix level with Marc van Dijk, and she is the full sister of the phenomenal Sapphire who won Olympic Gold twice with the American team and many Grand Prix wins at Calgary and Wellington. Granddam Chiquita foaled international jumpers Lapino, Qarco van ’t Merelsnest and Vincenzo van ’t Merelsnest.
Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest is a well-developed stallion with height and length. He jumps with scope and care, qualities that will serve him well on his route to the Grand Prix level. As a seven year old Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest was Champion of the NRPS Stallion Test. He earned very good comments from the judges and all elements of the test were received ‘good’ or ‘very good’ notes. He has all the qualities to become a future Grand Prix jumper and already has made his international debut with Jur Vrieling. He jumped clear rounds at 1.40m/1.45m level and was two times winner of the 1.30m at CH Groningen. In Zuidbroek he ended up sixth in the 1.35m and ninth in the 1.30m. In Vestfold he won the Six Bars and one week later was second in the Six Bars.
In only one year Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest went from 1.10m level to 1.45m level in competition.
His first foal crop is well developed and seems to jump well. They have a great canter and a lot of scope. Sensation Tok became Brazilian champion of the colts in the age of 12 to 18 months. In 2013 Hiralinde DN was Champion of the Jumper Foals in Westhoek. Several foals were sold for high prices at foal auctions.
