Out of 291 three-year-olds competing in Saint Lô, 75 were offspring of GFE stallions, representing 25.9% of the total.
As we get closer to the Top of the ranking, the proportion of GFE stallions increases:
32% out of the best 150 horses, 35% of the best 100 and 50% of the Top 10 horses!
Houna de Vesquerie (LAUTERBACH x Papillon Rouge) is ranked 5th with 17.5/20 in the under-saddle jumping test; Helma du Mesnil (KANNAN x Jarnac) is 7th with 17.25/20 in the under-saddle jumping test; Holga Longane (CANDY DE NANTUEL x Grenat de Grez) comes 8th with 18/20 in the free jumping test, Havana de la Cense (CANDY DE NANTUEL x Mr BLUE) is 9th and Hirondelle Tame (CICAVE DU TALUS x Conrad) is ranked 10th.
Among the GFE stallions, the performance of CANDY DE NANTUEL’s offspring are probably a new record in the history of this competition: he was represented by 6% of the participants (18 out of 291), 11% of the 150 best, 13% of the Top 100 and 16.7% of the Top 30 thanks to 5 of his offspring: Holga Longane, Havana de la Cense, Havana du Thot (CANDY x New Look du Thot) who scored 17/20 in the jumping test, Holy de la Cour (CANDY x Hélios de la Cour) and Hardy de la Gaieté (CANDY x First Bride).
A most promising performance for the first generation of this Champion.
Well done and thank you for your trust.
