LIBERO H x LORD CALANDO x AHORN HANN KWPN 95.3822, 1.69m, bay, 1995 Breeder: M. van Deurzen, Rips
Numero Uno completed his performance test triumphantly: he received a 9.0 for canter and scored an average of 8.5 for jumping components. His explosive takeoff earned him 9.0 points.
Dam Jolanda, like the Olympic showjumping stallion Lux, descends from Lord Calando. Grand dam Feinschnitt (Ahorn Hann) supplied, in combination with Gondelier, the national showjumping horse Kapitol, who as a five year- old gave an excellent performance in the world championships for young horses at Lanaken. The mother line continues via the well known stallion Farnese to the mare Fernsicht (Ladykiller xx), who is a full sister to the reputable stallion Lorenz. This famous Holstein lineage, which is registered under number 429, also produced the stallions Aldato (Anblick xx), Heidelberg (Ladykiller xx) and Benedictus (Benvenuto xx).
Following a successful show jumping career with European Champion, Marco Kutscher, Numero Uno (pref) today has proven himself to be one of the leading sires in the world. Numero Uno, father to numerous approved KWPN stallions, is sire to many champions in international show jumping, ability tests and stallion approvals. Horses such as Tamino, Tyson, Abunola, Ammaretto, and Van Gogh, who won the GCT in Valkenswaard, the LA Masters and the Hong Kong Masters, have been very successful in international GP competitions.
In the 1.60m accumulator class of CSI3* Birmingham no one could compete
with Robert Whitaker's fast clear round with the Upgrade son Dekato (ds.Stakkato,
breeder Wilgo van de Mheen), who was formerly ridden by Alexander Butler.
