About the Sire Line
Numero Uno is by Libero H and from a Lord Calando mother named Jolanda. Father Libero H (s. Landgraf I) and Jos Lansink won the World Cup Finals 1994 in a phenomenal way. Numero Uno completed his performance test triumphantly: he received a 9.0 for canter and scored an average of 8.5 for jumping components. His explosive takeoff earned him 9.0 points.
The mother line continues via the well-known stallion Farnese to the mare Fernsicht (Ladykiller xx), who is a full sister to the reputable stallion Lorenz. Following a successful show jumping career with European Champion, Marco Kutscher, Numero Uno (pref) today has proven himself to be one of the leading sires in the world providing a stunning amount of 1.60m Grand Prix winners and Olympic horses. Among some examples are Tamino, Tyson, Uno de la Roque, Chameur and Van Gogh, who among others won the GCT in Valkenswaard, the LA Masters and the Hong Kong Masters. Numero Uno, father to numerous approved KWPN stallions, is sire to many champions in international show jumping, ability tests and stallion approvals. Numero Uno’s offspring have earned more than €10 million in prize money!
About the Dam Line
Delilah W jumped 1.25 with Alex Granato. Delilah W is by Futurist. Futurist, approved for the North American Hanoverian Jumper Breeding program, is a true performance stallion. He won an International Jumping class at the 2006 Spruce Meadows Masters in Calgary and his offspring are successful up to GP level of jumping.
He is a son of double Olympic Gold Medal Champion and 2000 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year, For Pleasure, one of the most successful producers of International Show Jumpers. Futurist excelled in his stallion performance test, achieving high marks in both the rideability and the jumping phase of the test.
As a six year old, Futurist swept the Jumper Development Series in Canada, winning the Ontario Championships, the Eastern Finals and the National Finals at the Royal Winter Fair. In 2004, Futurist was the Ontario Open Jumper Champion under Erynn Ballard, a major success, as Erynn only met the stallion at horse shows but did not train him throughout the year. In 2006, Futurist had another successful year with Erynn Ballard, standing in the winners circle in an international class at the prestigious Spruce Meadows Masters.
Futurist exemplifies the modern type Hanoverian performance horse. His offspring are typically rather refined, with good movement and excellent scope and technique over jumps. Futurist has produced many top horses for the jumper ring, including Canadian Performance Futurity Champions and Young Horse Zone champions in the US as well as several Royal Winter Fair Champion line horses.
His offspring are now successful up to the GP level of show jumping. Most notably, Futurist’s Calypso was GP winner at the age of eight in 2011 under Alex Granato.
