The OS Show Jumping Champion and 2nd Reserve Champion of his stallion performance test
Conthalou made an ideal start as a sire with a magnificent first crop of foals, producing the top price of the Oldenburg auction in Vechta, Connery, who was sold for 33,000 Euros. For his outstanding offspring, he was named the main premium winner at the Oldenburg Stallion Days.
After his acclaimed victory at the licensing of the Oldenburg Show Jumping Breeding Association (OS), Conthalou completed his 50-day test in Adelheidsdorf with expected highlights for his jumping manner (9.0), scope (9.0), willingness to perform (9.5), rideability (9.0), temperament (9.25) and overall impression (9.0). With a total score of 8.86, he was only narrowly beaten in the strong field of 35 candidates and finished as second Reserve Champion of his stallion performance test.
The dam’s sire Conthargos, who also stands at our stud, produces numerous top horses, including the international competition winner Conchento PS/Luciana Diniz/POR, Easy Girl/Santiago Lambre/BRA, Connecticut/Matthew Sampson/GBR, Cocolina/Natalie Dean/USA, Cosa Nostra/Jeroen Dubbeldam/NED and Conthinder/Andrzej Oplatek/POL, to only name a few. Almost 20 of his sons have been licensed, including our OS Champion Stallion and main premium winner Conthalou PS and the internationally successful Continental Blue.
His dam Belinda is internationally successful in 1.45m show jumping competitions.
His grand-dam Chaccos-Lüd is the half sister of an OS Premium Stallion by Los Angeles and the full sister of the two premium stallions Chacco’s Son I and II (both by Chacco-Blue). Chacco’s Son I was part of the winning German Nations Cup teams at the CHIO in Aachen in 2018 and 2019 with Maurice Tebbel, was part of the fifth-placed European Championships team in Gothenburg/SWE and was highly placed in the Grand Prix of Rome/ITA, Hamburg/GER and La Baule/FRA. Chacco’s Son II was the Oldenburg main premium winner in 2015, was placed in the final of the German Championships and has since been placed in international competitions. Chacco’s-Lüd produced Corydon van T&L (by Cornado NRW)/Frederic Vernaet/BEL, OS Reserve Champion and successful in 1.40m show jumping competitions, and the stallion For Chacco TN (by For Pleasure), who was placed in the international Youngster Tour.
Our performance stallions Balou du Rouet and Chacco-Blue appear in the previous generations and secure Conthalou’s pedigree in the best way.
Balou du Rouet, himself successful in advanced level show jumping competitions, sired Baloutinue/Laura Kraut/USA, Olympic team silver medallist, Bianca/Steve Guerdat/SUI, bronze medallist at the World and European Championships and eighth in the World Cup, Saura de Fondcombe/Nadja Peter Steiner/SUI, team third at the European Championships, as well as Corouet/Sarah Bullimore/GBR, individual bronze medallist at the European Eventing Championships. He is not only by far the most successful son of his famous sire, the Olympic champion and three-time World Cup winner Baloubet du Rouet, but also appears, once again, amongst the top 15 and top 12 of the world’s best show jumping and eventing sires respectively, according to the WBFSH ranking.
Chacco-Blue was third in the Grand Prix in Aachen, won the Grand Prix in Neumünster and has led the WBFSH ranking since 2017. From a breeding perspective, the elite stallion produced Explosion W/Ben Maher/GBR, Olympic Champion, individual silver and team bronze medallist at the European Championships and Global Champions Tour winner, Chanyon/Daisuke Fukushima/JPN, placed sixth at the Olympics, Chaqui Z/Shane Sweetnam/IRL, European Team Champion, and Chacon/Eoin McMahon/IRL, placed second in the Nations Cup final, amongst others. Chacco-Blue produced the most offspring at almost all championships, for example eight at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. Around 55 of his sons have been licensed.
The licensed stallions Power Light/Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst, Cessna, Durex and Amantino as well as the sport horses Whoopy/Jan Sprehe/GER, Mya Mercedes/Stefan Engbers/GER, Let’s Fly/Erik Kunze/GER and Baldobes/Roberto Prevital/ITA descend from this line.
