PEGASE VAN 'T RUYTERSHOF X ZIROCCO BLUE VDL

Syrie is a son of Pegase van’t Ruytershof. Grandmother Ursula is mother of the approved stallion Malibu Z and mother of the 1.60m classified mare Belinda. If we look further into the mother’s line, we see great-grandmother Olanda, the full sister of the legendary stallion Numero Uno.

Pegase van’t Ruytershof

Pegase van’t Ruytershof is one of the great promises of his generation, both in sport and in breeding.

Father Comme Il Faut performs at the highest level under the saddle of Marcus Ehning. Pegase’s maternal line is particularly interesting. Mother Gianthina van’t Ruytershof is also mother of the Grand-Prix stallion Jilbert van’t Ruytershof. Grandmother Diamanthina van’t Ruytershof made waves at the highest level with Niels Bruynseels and Constant Van Paesschen. She is also the full sister of Emerald van’t Ruytershof.

Zirocco Blue

With Jur Vrieling, Zirocco Blue has achieved an impressive list of achievements. With the Dutch team, Zirocco Blue won Gold during the European Championship and individually he finished fifth. In the World Cup final in Las Vegas he finished 10th. Several Grand Prix were won, including the World Cup race in Oslo and the GPs of Copenhagen, Melsomvik (2x) and Geesteren. With the Dutch jumping team he triumphed in the Nations Cup of Rotterdam, Copenhagen and Gijon. Zirocco Blue finished 2nd in the Netherlands Jumping Championship.

Zirocco Blue performs exceptionally not only in sport but also in breeding. 2018 was the year of champions for Zirocco Blue. Willem Greve won the championship title for the seven-year-olds in the Blom Cup in Ermelo with Gogo Karla V, but there was much more spectacle for Zirocco Blue at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon. His son Eddie Blue won the team gold medal with the American team under Devin Ryan. Eddie Blue previously finished second in the World Cup final and achieved one top performance after another. A second place in the Grand Prix of Ocala, second in GP Toronto, second in World Cup Toronto, second in Nations Cup of Aachen, second in Nations Cup of Sopot, third in Grand Prix of Devon, and so on. It is not without reason that Eddie Blue was chosen as the best show jumping horse in the United States.
