ZORANA herself had a very successful carrier in the jumper ring.
Her sire, OKLUND Jumped at the highest international level with Dutch rider Eric van der Vleuten. OKLUND was 5th at the World Cup in Toronto, 1st place at the Grand Prix of Eindhoven, 1st place at the VHO Trophy 's Hertogenbosch, that he won twice! and 1st place in the Grand Prix in Roggel. OKLUND’s sire HOLLAND is by the stallion CONCORD the silver medal winner in Barcelona, who was the spectacular winner of the 1990 National Stallion Champion. His outstanding performances at a very early age earned him the prefix Olympic. ??His prestige remains phenomenal with Jos Lansik, given their success in Dortmund, Paris and Darmstatt. Concorde comes from a strong jumping line on both sides. Sire of this stallion is the impressive Voltaire, who is bred to perform. He has already sired 5 approved stallions in the Netherlands, one in Belgium, two in Germany and one in Sweden. Through the performance of his offspring, Voltaire stands very high in both Dressage and Show Jumping indexes. concorde stallionConcorde sire of this stallion, who in jumping circles is known as Olympic Concorde, is the impressive dominant breeding stallion Voltaire, who via his sire Furioso II and Gotthard is bred to perform. Voltaire is the number 2 in the World Breeding Ran-kings for Showjumping Sires in 1996. Also in her pedigree we find the stallion PILOT, who was the youngest show jumper millionaire that has ever existed among Germany’s stallions. He was a brand name for the transmission of showjumping ability, far beyond the borders of Westphalia from the outset. When Wolfang Brinkmann won team gold on the PILOT son PEDRO at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, PILOT had just turned 14 and was at the apex of his career. Unfortunately however, he was not in good health at that point in time already, so that he was no longer stationed outside of his home covering station any longer, but remained at the Warendorf covering station. At the same time, his showjumping progeny continued their triumphal processions around the globe: Pirol / Lesley Mc Naught, P.S. Priamos / Ludger Beerbaum resp. Dirk Hafemeister, Prinzregent 7 / Norbert Koof and numerous others. Many Pilot progeny had the reputation, not undeservedly, of being professional horses. Even if the FN breeding value for dressage indicates something else, it is generally known that Pilot progeny did not necessarily favour the demands of dressage sport. Pilot represents the “second” Westphalian P-line. If one assumes the “first P-line” to be that of Papayer xx (via Paradox I and II), then Pilot’s genealogical path leads back via Pilatus and Perseus to the thoroughbred Pluchino xx, who covered at the Werthmann stud (Soest-Lühringen) from 1958 to 1975 as a private stallion. Pilatus who was likewise a private stallion in Westphalia produced a second masterpiece, Polydor. On his damside Pilot’s pedigree includes the first rate sire Graphit. The grandam Kornelia, a daughter of the last original Trakehner Keith, foaled prime products from diverse sires. Mated with Duden II, she produced the showjumper Darling Boy, who with breakneck speed tallied numerous successes with Wolfgang Behne and with the top Trakehner sire Mahagoni, produced the stallion Macon, who initially covered at the Eichgrund stud for a short while, before going to Sweden. Pilot only attained the age of 17 and in comparatively few years, managed to move mountains so to speak. Many sons were tested, some reacted well, others not at all. Pro Pilot II, Power Game, Pilot’s Highlight and Palazzo were infertile and several others had fecundity problems. As his health condition increasingly worsened, Pilot was put down at the beginning of 1991. High class deep frozen sperm was harvested throughout his life, during his royal stud period, which is partly still utilised today. Even while he was alive, Pilot sired approved sons by this method, including sons like Polling in Bavaria. In 1998 two Pilot progeny were candidates at the Westphalian foal auction.
On her dams side, the stallion FRULING In Westphalia Hanoverian stallions have always been used in breeding. This also applies to the small chestnut Frühschein who spent two seasons in 1959 and 1960 as a Warendorf state stallion in Höven-Varlar and then without much ado disappeared again from the services of the NRW state stud. Yet hardly anyone would have credited him with siring a sire of the century for Westphalia. Nevertheless this was the case. His breeding record for these two years includes 13 registered mares and one approved stallion: FRÜHLING. On the maternal side he was also purely Hanoverian bred. In 1963 he first took up duty at a covering station in Varl. During his first year there he already sired a bullseye, namely the approved bay Frühlingstraum I who went on to become one of the most significant Frühling stallion sons. Frühlingstraum I covered in Warendorf for many years before he spent the dusk of his life in the Oldenburg region. In 1966 a full Frühlingstraum I brother, the chestnut Minister 4 was born, who as a gelding was to become German champion showjumper under Norbert Koof. Together the pair was to outclass the entire German showjumping elite. A new star of showjumping had been born and the name Koof was to continue to be associated with the Frühling line. In 1982 Koof who is resident in the Rhenic town of Willich became world champion showjumper with the enormous chestnut Fire 2. Fire was a son of the big framed variegated chestnut Frühlingstraum II , who even outdid his older full-brother in terms of performance transmission. Apart from the "Frühlingsträume", Frühlinsball, who derives from Frühling`s second covering period and was born in 1970 is no doubt the next most important Frühling son. He sired countless top performance horses and made the headlines in 1998 once more with his Hanover branded son Fibonacci, when he became federal champion six year old showjumper. All representatives of this line have a pronounced diversity in their hereditary transmission. Even during his lifetime, Frühling had the aura of a legend. He himself was approvals champion in 1962, a I-b prize winner at the 1964 and 1968 DLG shows and he mastered all classes up to Grand Prix. He was moreover a mighty stallion of enormous depth. In spite of the dearth in thoroughbred blood in particular and noble blood in general in Frühling`s rather poor blood background, his progeny are animated by a pleasant inclination in their paces. Unfortunately Frühling progeny are currently no longer playing a leading role in Westphalian studbook breeding for that matter, despite all their unquestionable achievements. One can only hope that the somewhat attenuated bloodline can nevertheless maintain itself in the male line.
