Koss Van Heise placed six times!
Last month most of the attention went, of course, to the new edition of our auction, which, despite the Corona, was again a huge success. But in addition, we were also looking forward to how our Woodland's references were confirming.
The most striking name of the past month was undoubtedly that of Koss Van Heiste (Breemeersen Adorado x PKZ Contact Van De Heffinck), who is bred by Patrick Gillis. Under the saddle of his Irish rider Conor Swail, the grey gelding was placed no less than six times. In Vilamoura, Portugal, he finished 6th last week and won a 1.45m high speed class. But also on the Sunshine Tour of Vejer de la Frontera, Koss Van Heiste showed again the best of himself. He was once 7th and once 10th in two CSI3* GPs and he also collected a 2nd and a 9th place.
But Koss Van Heiste was not the only reference that managed to jump into the spotlight several times in the past month. For example, it was also a successful month for Qatar Donaldson (Quidam de Rêvel x Diamant de Semilly - B: Sonia Lasson) under the saddle of Charlie Sue Fani. After they had already won a class in Oliva at the beginning of the month they became 2nd and 9th later in the month.
Evelyne Putters with Divinus de France (Huppydam des Horts x Phosph'Or - B: Patrick Mazade & Gaelle Boillot) and Cecilia Di Fulvio with Jasmin van de Kwekenhoeve (Casario II x Nonstop - B: Maria Buyens) were placed 2 times in recent weeks. Putters and Divinus de France finished 2nd and 4th in the classes reserved for the 7-year-old horses in Azelhof in Lier, while Di Fulvio with Jasmin van de Kwekenhoeve became 2nd and 9th in San Giovanni di Marignano.
In St. Lô, France, Niels Bruynseels was placed again with Kopernic Van Orti (Diamant de Semilly x Lord Z - B: Johan Van Oost). After a clear jump-off round they became 6th in a 1.50m class. And also Mumbai (Diamant de Semilly x Nabab de Rêve - B: De Moerhoeve BVBA) confirmed again last month. Under the saddle of Christian Kukuk the grey stallion jumped to a 4th place in a 1.45m class in Riesenbeck.
Furthermore, Derin Demirsoy finished 5th with Hunter (Bernini x Voltaire - B: HJM Huis in 't Veld) in Vejer de la Frontera while both Hugo Tavares with Another Tiji Z (Anakin van Schuttershof x Air Jordan Z - B: Tiji Stables) as Jordy Janssens with Maserati J&J (Emerald van 't Ruytershof x Ludo W - B: Pascale Artois) finished 8th. Finally, for Maxx de Nyze Z (Mr. Blue x Heartbreaker - B: Danny Nijs) there was a 10th place in Lier under the saddle of Evelyne Putters.
