Son of Quidam de Revel BWP Champion

18-01-2009

At the 55th BWP stallion licensing held on 15-16 January in Moorsele Gigolo van de Padenborre became the lisencing champion of all BWP-bred colts born in 2006.
Gigolo van de Padenborre is by Guidam de Revel / Chin Chin / Lugano van La Roche and is out of a full sister of the international jumping horse Rio van de Padenborre. The large framed and well developed Gigolo was presented at the licensing by Erwin de Wolf and Andre Leemans and sold to Dutch stallion keepers Egbert Schep and Joop van Uytert.
A number of stallions of very good type was presented to the BWP licensing committee but unfortunately they were less impressive over the fences.
Spokesman of the BWP licensing committee Boudewijn Scheperscommented:
- This year the collection of colts was not outstanding but when looking back I see a number of good stallions. BWP has never been known for excellent types but for excellent jumpers with Darco as the best embasador. We have seen some very nice types at this licensing, but they did not jump well enough.
Premium stallions:
* Gorki van Sonnevanck by Breemeersen Adorado / Pavarotti van de Helle
* Gambo van den Opstal by Chicago Z / Canadian River
* Gondor-Gucci van het Burghof by Wandor van de Mispelaere / Gottwald
* Gonzales by Winningmood van de Arenberg / Calypso d' Herbiers
