Ulmar Mail is a beautiful young horse – powerful yet agile like his father Berlin. In 2012 he will take part in the French 4 year old cycle.
He was the show-stopper at the Brullemail auction in July 2011, reaching a bid of 85,000 euros as top lot. He looks superb – strong, supple and his bascule is very impressive. He jumps in the model of his father.
Eurocommerce Berlin had a well known jumping career – highlights included 1st in the Dutch Jumping Championship in 2006, and 1st in the Nations Cup at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen that year. In 2007 he was 1st in the Nations Cup in the European Championships, Mannheim, and his other victories inlcuded winning the St Gallen Nations Cup in both 2007 and 2008, and the Grand Prix of La Coruna (07) and Verona (04). His father Cassini I was Franke Sloothaak’s top horse for many years, and his dam Estia was an international competitor for both Alois Pollman-Schweckhorst and Marc Wirths.
Ulmar’s dam Norma jumped up to 1.20m before retiring to stud early to stand alongside her famous mother. Elvira’s first two foals were the Olympic Jaguar Mail (best father of eventers in 2011 for 4, 5 and 6 yr olds, a record breaking number of entrants at the young horse championships, and the 5 yr old champion) and the international mare Katchina Mail (winner of the Grand Prix at the Horse of the Year Show 2008, winner of the Stuttgart Masters, bronze team medal winner at the 2010 WEG in Kentucky). Norma’s first son Radjar Mail will start in small GP in 2012.
Elvira’s two full brothers were Chergar (international GP) and Fergar Mail (international jumper, sire of Lamm de Fetan, the most expensive sport horse to change hands prior to Totilas). Moreover their mother Adoret also produced Hoggar Mail (Hand in Glove), the French 6yr old champion 2001 and GP competitior. Adoret’s family has proved a good cross with both TB sires and warmblood stallions – producing top international competitors. Ulmar is an exciting prospect.
