Poker de Mariposa x Heartbreaker x Esteban
Beauty and talent has a name
Ojade S is a beautifully built filly with a fantastic pedigree. Her positive character combined with elastic movements and great conformation show already at this early stage that she is going to be a strong candidate for the highest level of sport.
Three generations of mares of Ojade S has produced the total of 6 horses to 140 level or up.
Ojade S is an off-spring of a performing mother Ushi S (Heartbreaker-Esteban). This elite mare (sport) showed herself at 135 level and was known to always give her everything in the ring. Two of her daughters by Vigo d'Arsouilles (Nabab de Reve) and Nabab de Reve already perform at 130 level. The breeders choice to use Poker de Mariposa (Nabab de Reve) is therefore not a surprising one. In the damline we also find the successful GP horses Finesse (Voltaire) - Emile Hendrix and Sterrehof's Baccarat - Marc Houtzager.
Ushi S is a daughter of the legendary Heartbreaker, the KWPN Horse of the Year in 2016 and ‘Preferent’ already since 2009 due to his numerous successful descendants. Heartbreaker is a sire of 10 approved sons and 19 grandsons such as Cidane, Toulon, Zambesi, Actionbreaker and the list of his successful off-spring is endless: Romanov II, VDL Group Zidane, Earley, Hello Sanctos…
Heartbreaker reached the respectable 30 years of age this spring and it was lovely to see how much energy this old gentleman still has, when he was showing off at the front of the enthusiastic crowd at the Stallion Show at Team Nijhof.
Poker de Mariposa, the son of the great Nabab de Rêve (Quidam de Revel-Jalisco B) and Ilena de Mariposa (Berlin-For Pleasure), is a one of the most interesting young stallions of this era. Vice-Champion as a 3-year old in 2018 BWP Stallion Show for showjumpers,
Poker de Mariposa has attracted many breeders to use him for their top mares. If Nabab de Rêve has left off-spring such as Vigo D’Arsouilles and Cashmir van Shuttershof to the highest of sport, we can expect his son to follow the same manner. The first crop looks extremely promising when it comes to conformation, movement and character. Two of the foals by Poker de Mariposa reached the prices of 15 and 17 thousand in Ommen and Munster foal auctions.
Damline is also best of quality. Dam of Poker de Mariposa is Ilena de Mariposa, who successfully competes at 155-level. Ilena is a daughter of Flora de Mariposa, one of the best showjumpers in the world and the Team Gold Medalist with Pénélope Léprevost for France in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016.
