About the Dam Line
Quora’s mother Belaquador ( Equador X Akteur ) was injured as a young horse. She jumped up to 1.35 with Meagan Nusz. The grandmother produced three 1.60 Jumpers and 1 1.50 jumper. The great Grandmother produced 1 1.50 jumper. The great aunt Elansa produced the 1.60 Jumper Vesuvius.
Equador was by the famous stallion Voltaire. Vital in Voltaire’s pedigree is the connection in the third generation to the thoroughbreds More Magic xx on one side and on the other side Furioso xx. Voltaire is the result of crossing two outstanding bloodlines: Furioso II and Gotthard. Furioso II produced 200 state premium mares and at least 70 approved stallions of which several are standing at stud in other continents. One can easily say that Furioso II has influenced the breeding industry worldwide. The full brother of Furioso II is the French stallion Mexico. His son Le Mexico is a familiar name in Dutch breeding and frequently appears in the pedigrees of successful showjumpers. The dam’s sire Gotthard is, now more than fifteen years after his death, almost a legend in German sports horse breeding. Gotthard’s strength is continued in his sons and grandsons.
As an 8 year old Voltaire jumped 1.50 m. courses with a great deal of success. He showed his strength in international jumping in 1988 in Calgary, Stockholm, Lanaken, Helsinki, Wiesbaden and Wembley and in 1989 he brought his showjumping career to a successful ending by winning the Grand Prix of Berlin with Jos Lansink and 2nd in the Grand Prix of Leeuwarden. Voltaire was the sire with the most offspring at the Olympic Games of Atlanta in 1996. Moreover, Voltaire is second on the World Breeding Ranking of Showjumping Sires. Voltaire has over 50 approved sons. Many of his offspring jump at Grand Prix level, i.e. Finesse, Altaire, Kahlua, Play it Again, Helios, Electro, Kannan, Especial etc. etc. Foltaire, ridden by Günther Seidel is a famous offspring of Voltaire in the international dressage ring. Voltaire has been awarded Huntersire of the Year 2001, 2002 and 2003 in the USA. At the moment Voltaire is one of the top sires in the KWPN Jumping Index with 151 points.
