|Carte Blanche Z
With the approval of Orleans, VDL Stud has once again secured an interesting stallion from one of the best damlines of the moment. Sire Conthargos already brought a lot of horses at Grand Prix level, including the Olympic Cosa Nostra, Carlotta, Concona and Celine. Furthermore, Orleans combines the greats Heartbreaker and Carthago is his outstanding pedigree. Orleans’ dam Happy Days Z has also proved to be successful in breeding; her daughter Classy Cat JT Z jumps at 1.60m level with Alfie Bradstock and her son Dynamis KC jumps at 1.50m level with USA’s Caitlin Creel. Granddam Carte Blanche Z is dam of the Olympic stallion VDL Hardrock Z. In addition, Carte Blanche Z produced the Grand Prix showjumper Charlemagne JT Z of Italy’s Silvia Bazzani and Riccardo Pisani. Well-known Grand Prix showjumpers such as Skejarbergs Larkin of Pal Flam, Zippo Z of Freddie Vazquez, Camaro Z of Pedro Veniss, JK Horsetrucks Leasure Z of Katharina Offel and Lord II Z of Geir Gulliksen are closely related to Orleans as well. In the KWPN Performance Test, Orleans emerged as one of the most promising stallions with a total score of 82 points. He was very positively noticed for his excellent rideability and balance in canter and he also showed off his jumping talent with his quick reflexes and great way of jumping.
