Icellie top leader with seven stallions
For the Harness Horse Stallion Show, which will take place on Saturday, May 8th in Ermelo, 36 stallions have been registered. The stallions have 20 different sires. Last year, Idol was the leader with seven sons from his first year, now that title goes to Icellie, who has seven sons from his second year. In total, 33 three-year-olds are offered, including a thoroughbred Hackney stallion and three four-year-olds.
Many stallions come from pedigrees which are rich in predicates and achievements; a few mares are already stallion dams. Some breeding lines have already supplied one or more stallions. Several breeders who are registered as Breeder of the Year have breeding products that participate this year, and some breeders have several breeding products among the young stallions.
First and Second Round viewing
After the first round viewing, the second round viewing takes place on this day. There will be no champions selection, but the stallion selection committee, consisting of chairman Lammert Tel, Bauke de Boer, Thomas van der Weiden, and inspector Viggon van Beest, will select harness stallions for priming.
The I-Year, born in 2016, supplies the majority with fourteen stallions, but also offspring of older stallions such as Patijn and Urgent make their appearance. The relationship percentage varies from 2.7% to 14.4%.
