From champion stallion to star producer!

Bordeaux and his progeny are characterized by a lot of charm, a modern riding horse type, first-class movement and natural rideability. He won his licensing and his performance test in the Netherlands and was high placed in the final of the Pavo-Cup in 2010. In 2012, ridden by Eva Möller, 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. He was the favourite and won the competition with a clear margin. In 2014 he won international competitions up to Prix St. Georges; in 2015, he achieved his first high placings in Grand Prix classes. Bordeaux dominated championship and auction events "on the spot": At the Oldenburg championships in Rastede in 2013, Biscaya, Bluetooth and Bella Laguna dominated the first places, and shortly afterwards, Biscaya was Vice National German Champion in Warendorf, where Bluetooth was also high placed in the final, and in autumn Biscaya was sold for a record price (300.000 euros) at the Oldenburg autumn auction in Vechta. In 2014, Heide Queen OLD was Oldenburg vice champion in Rastede.

From his first crops, many sons have already been licensed. Bordeaux himself is a "highflyer" in the FN breeding valuation: With 166 points, he is part of the top group of dressage sires throughout Germany. In 2015, he was the father of many of the finalists of the German national championships of five-year old dressage horses. In 2015, his daughter Best of All won the British five-year old dressage horse championships and the licensed stallion Ferdeaux was second in the five-year old Pavo-Cup in the Netherlands. The four-year old Pavo-Cup also went to one of Bordeaux' daughter, Guaderloupe-Beau.

In terms of genetics, Bordeaux is an absolute rarity, bred from one of the most successful dam lines in the world: The best of the Holstein, Oldenburg, Westphalia and Trakehner populations are united. His 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. Bordeaux' 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.

Bordeaux: the best of the Netherlands and Germany united in one stallion
