Quidam de Revel / Cor de Chasse / Rantzau xx
Approved by: Selle Francais & Belgian Warmblood Studbooks
* One of best bred Selle Francais stallions available in the UK *
Desir du Chateau combines the genes of one of France‘s best sires, Quidam de Revel, with one of the very best damlines in France, the Manuela line. This damline has produced 28 international showjumpers. Desir du Chateau is 16.3hh and 68% thoroughbred and Anglo-Arab, and he brings size and a lot of “blood” to his progeny.
Desir du Chateau qualified for the French 4-Year-Old Championship but a serious injury prematurely ended his competition career and delayed his stud career until he was seven. His first crop of 38 foals was not born until 1999, when he was 8 years old. But what a first crop it was – 19 of 38 offspring competed in the French 4-Year-Old Classic Cycle, 23 competed in National showjumping and/or eventing classses, 9 have won showjumping competitions, 3 qualified for the 6-Year-Old French Showjumping Championship, and 4 have gone on to showjump internationally in 2006 as 7-year-olds.
This is the first year this stallion has been available in the UK and he provides discerning breeders with an opportunity to use some exceptional selle francais bloodlines.
