Performance Champion 2009
How did Bohemian van Catharine Dufour advertise for our stallion Bordeaux. With a 4th place at the Olympic Games in Tokyo and a Silver and Bronze Medal at the European Championships. in Hagen they are among the best combinations in the world. But also the international Grand Prix horses Rose of Bavaria, Bluetooth OLD, Bon Romantic, Bonheur la Vie and Fame bring Bordeaux to the top of the WBFSH Sire Ranking (17th pl.) and No. 1 on Hors Telex B-Ranking (descendants max. 12 years). Bordeaux is also distinctive in its breeding in the Netherlands with, among others, Performance Champion 2021 Merlot VDL (ds. Florencio), IBOP topper Laytown G (ds. Uptown) and World Championship topper Johnny Depp (ds. Jazz).
Bordeaux's oldest offspring will turn 10 this year, and 11 of these descendants are already competing in international dressage. The various rankings, especially for young breeding stallions, show how much quality talent Bordeaux passes on to his offspring. Bordeaux is the new leader of the HorseTelex dynamic ranking, which is recalculated daily. He also has an IPV (International Progency Value) of 1,012.73. KWPN Stallion Champion in 2009, Bordeaux has made the largest jump of any sire in the WBFSH-Sire Ranking 2020 and is now in 29th place. Bordeaux is fully available for the 2021 season.
Bordeaux offspring had another fantastic year. At the World Cup competition in Aarhus, top talent Bohemian under the Danish Cathrine Dufour and Freestyle to Music won with a score of 88,200%, beating the German top riders such as Isabell Werth and Jessica von Bredow-Wernd. At the British Dressage Championships, Laura Tomlinson with Rose of Bavaria led the rankings, and she hopes to compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
At the end of 2019 we bought back Paul Schockemöhle's share, making Bordeaux entirely our property and fully available for Dutch breeding. Now that all Bordeaux semen is at our breeding station, we can offer it daily. During the 2020 breeding season, many breeders had confidence in Bordeaux and we achieved good pregnancy scores with him.

In 2019, five Bordeaux sons were shown at the KWPN Stallion selections in Den Bosch. All five were selected for the KWPN Performance test:
1. Champion Le Formidable (dam sire Ferro) bred and owned by Saskia Poels and Karel Gerrits.
2. L’avenue (dam sire Connaisseur) bred by van Uytert and Albert Drost with the famous mare Haute Couture
3. Livius- Utopia (dam sire Vivaldi) bred out of the ZZ- line mare Blueberry- Utopia by van Uytert and Randolph van de Heuvel
4. Legend (dam sire Florencio) out of the famous Landsvrouw line bred by Marianne Hendriksen.
5. The fifth son, which has Sir Donnerhall as the dam sire, was imported by VDL from Oldenburg.
Bordeaux: a perfect pedigree: United x Gribaldi x Donnerhall x Rousseau x Angelo xx. Angelo xx daughter Adone is also the mother of Rembrandt. Bordeaux descends from the famous de Baey Olympian line, from which come Rembrandt, Amon, Ahlerich and Rubinstein. Rembrandt won four gold medals with Nicole Uphoff in 1988 and 1992 at the Olympic Games in Seoul/KOR and Barcelona/ESP. Ahlerich won individual and team gold with the riding master Dr. Reiner Klimke at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles/USA, the 1982 World Championships in Lausanne/SUI and the 1985 European Championships in Copenhagen/DEN. Ridden by Annemarie Sanders-Keyzer/NED, Amon took part in the Olympic Games three times, won the Dutch Championships seven times and was considered the most successful dressage horse in the Netherlands at the time. Rubinstein was part of the Olympic team with Martina Hannöver and is well-known for the good rideability he passes on to his offspring.
