“Good seed makes a good crop!”
ANTANGO DU FEUILLARD descends from one of the best dam lines of the KWPN Studbook. His own dam, ORONIA (JAZZ x ULFT) is multi-labelled for her quality bloodlines and offspring, i.e. Elite - Preferent - Prestatie - Sport (Dressage).
Indeed, the entire dam line is prestigious, with each broodmare being labelled in the KWPN Studbook.
The sire line is equally as prestigious, wherein we find several KWPN breed sires, namely the famous International performer, OLYMPIC FERRO, sire of the stallions ROUSSEAU, JOERIS (ridden by Philippe Limousin in GP Dressage), JASPER (GP Dressage), JOERY (GP Dressage), etc., as well as of such 1m40 showjumpers as JANOESKA and KOKARDE-E, amongst others; FLEMMINGH, sire of such high-level international dressage horses as KRACK C (ridden by Anky Van Grunsven) and LINGH (ridden by Edward Gal), as well as of such showjumpers as JILVANO (1m40), KALLI (1m30), KOKO-LADY (1m30), etc.
On the dam’s side, we find JAZZ, the leading KWPN sire in terms of progeny and sire of many GP horses as well as of several stallions.
ULFT, represented in both the sire and dam lines, is the sire of such show-jumping stallions as BOSTON (1m30) and DAGMAR (1m40), as well as of the jump horses, BALTIMORE & CYRANO (1m35) and of the dressage horses, CAESAR (GP Dressage) and DEXICO (GP Dressage), etc.
Using ANTANGO on your mares is a wise choice! For his first generation in Germany in 2013, he was awarded 1st Prize by the Oldenburg Studbook for the quality of his foals, and in 2017, 2 of his sons respectively won the stallion shows in Neustadt / Dosse and Marbacher Wochenende in Germany. ANTANGO, at the age of 10, already has 4 sons approved as stallions in Germany!
Strength, suppleness, balance, propulsion, height and chic are the main qualities that ANTANGO transmits to his offspring. He is most suited to spirited mares due to his excellent temperament. His pedigree is such that it can be used to make an interesting cross for eventing. ANTANGO is among those stallions used by the Germans due to the interesting bloodlines, despite belonging to a foreign studbook.
Excellent fertility; Osteo-articular status: Excellent.
Approved to sire in the French Saddle Horse [Selle Français - SF] and Oldenburg Studbooks.
His sire, AMPERE, was Champion of the 2008 KWPN Stallion Selection at Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. Many of his foals have attained Top Price at the sales. In 2011, AMPERE was the sire of the Vice-Champion at the Foal Championships in Lienen, Germany. At the auctions in Vechta, one of AMPERE’s sons was sold for the top price of €200,000.
He is the sire of honourable winners in CDI St-Georges and Inter I, namely: EOWYN, ECUADOR VD, EMERALD S, FOSBURRY and FARZANA, as well as many good show-jumping and eventing winners, such as EDISON (CCI1*) and ELFJE (CSO 1.30m), amongst others.
He is the sire of 60 stallions, including AMBER and ELECTRON, both good show-jumping winners.
Among the few of his indexed offspring in France, we note: EVE DU LOUP PENDU, IDR 119(17), FELLOW, IDR 124(17), HOTSHOT, IDR 114(17), etc.
ROUSSEAU, AMPERE’s sire, was the 2003 Vice Dressage World Champion for Young Horses in Verden. FLEMMINGH, also present in ANTANGO’s pedigree, is the sire of prime international horses, notably KRACK C, as well as many good showjumpers, such as JILVANO KALLI, KOKO-LADY… or even LINGH. Hence, through these origins, we find, not only excellent dressage horses, but also good showjumpers. ANTANGO also reveals a certain aptitude for jumping.
FERRO, a major international dressage performer, finished 6th at the Rome Olympics in 1998, won the Berlin CDI GP, ranked 1st in the European League, came 2nd at the World Cup dressage final and finished 5th individual at the Sydney Olympics.
He was awarded the “Preferent” label during his lifetime, which is the highest distinction of the KWPN Studbook, generally awarded posthumously! Many of his sons are approved stallions and are showing their influence across the KWPN Studbook, notably OSMIUM. FERRO is also the sire of performing showjumpers, namely Audi’s PALOMA, 2nd at the Lisbon CSIO***** Nations Cup in 2008 ridden by Eric van der Vleuten, as well as FERRARI and NORDSTAR, etc. In dressage, he is the sire of JOERIS, JOERY, LORENZO, JARLOT, JAZZ DANCER, amongst others.
