Several successful sport horses can be found in the mother’s line, including; Iletto JB (by I’m Special De Muze ) SP INT 1.45 Pam Nieuwenhuis, Ciletto H. (by Royal Bravour ) EV INT CCI4*-S Ben Hobday (GBR) and Willetton (by RIVERMAN ) SP INT 1.60-GP George Whitaker (GBR).

Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest

Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest is an exceptionally interestingly bred stallion. Father Nabab de Reve and grandfather Darco have performed very successfully themselves. Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest has a fantastic mother line. His mother Wendelina jumped at international Grand Prix level with Marc Van Dijk and is the full sister of Sapphire, the successful show jumping horse of the American rider Mclain Ward. Sapphire won the Olympic Gold team medal no less than twice and won many Grand Prix prizes, including those of Calgary and Wellington. In addition to Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest, Wendelina produced two full brothers who jump internationally, Edjaz and Koblenz van ‘t Merelsnest. In addition to Sapphire, granddam Idjaz-C also produced the international showjumping horses Lapino, Qarco van ‘t Merelsnest and Vincenzo van ‘t Merelsnest.

Under Jur Vrieling, Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest belongs to the top of Dutch show jumping and he competed at the European Championships in Gothenburg and the WEG in Tryon. One of the highlights so far was winning the FEI Nations Cup Final and winning the prestigious Grand Prix of Rome. He also won several Nation Cups and other major international competitions.

Contendro I

The 17-year-old Contendro I is a son of the influential Holstein sports sire Contender. His mother Bravo is a particularly successful mare in breeding. She is a daughter of Reichsgraf (Rinaldo-G.Ramiro Z x Landgraf I). Bravo is also mother of the full brother of Contendro I, Contendro II and of Cassito (by Cassiano) and Caretano Z (by Caretino). Caretano Z in particular has achieved an impressive track record under Jos Lansink in international show jumping and later in show jumping horse breeding. Grandmother Ofarim is a daughter of Rasputin (G.Ramiro Z x Ramzes) from Holle, a daughter of the English thoroughbred Tin Rod xx. The mother’s line continues with Ute, a daughter of Ramzes. It is striking in the pedigree that the top sire Ramzes appears five times.
Contendro I has only competed in sports for a short time and is mainly used for breeding. He is particularly convincing in this regard. In 2013 he was in 10th place on the WBFSH sire ranking of the best sire jumping stallions. Some of his most notable descendants are Codex One (ds. Glueckspilz) with Christian Ahlmann, Constantin B (ds. Espri) with Hans-Dieter Dreher, Hello Annie (ds. For Pleasure) with Scott Brash and Callahan (ds. For Pleasure) with Gerco Schröder.
