All eleven stallions participating in the final presentation of the Stallion Performance Test were approved by the KWPN. New Pleasure VDL achieved the highest score with 87.5 points.

After this 35- and 21-day assessment, the stallion inspection committee consisting of chairman Cor Loeffen, Henk van den Broek and Wout-Jan van der Schans was very satisfied. “We had to get used as well to assess the three-year-old stallions in only 35 days and the four-year-old stallions in 21 days, but we are very satisfied with the the way the spring test went and the results,” says Cor Loeffen. “Several stallions come from the first year of breeding of their fathers. Jukebox, Impressive VDL and Inaico VDL all got one son approved.” Seven of the eleven stallions scored over 80 points. The For Pleasure son New Pleasure (out of Lady-A ter Putte by Diamant de Semilly, breeder De Maertelaere Family from Bassevelde) finished his test with four nines to achieve a wonderful total of 87.5 points. This stallion, owned by Egbert Schep, has now been sold to the VDL Stud, who managed to get six (!) stallions approved today. The four-year-old Cornet Obolensky-son Mr. Cornet de Regor (out of Ohaj de Regor by Kannan) from breeder W. van de Plasse left no doubts whatsoever about his natural talent and is approved with 86.5 points.
