sire of Bernadette Utopia

BY cOLANDRO

And from an Olympic horse by Colandro to one just starting on his career...

...Bred at Drumhowan Stud by Eamon McArdle, now competing in the RDS qualifiers for the 3 year old Potential Event Horse 2019

...Mary Bolger’s Drumhowan, a bay gelding, by Colandro (HOLST), out of Aster (KWPN), by Crown Z (ZANG), took runner-up place on the night at Ross House, Co.Cavan and is qualified for the final.


VDL CORPORAL

VDL

Arriving in Ireland in March 2019, the top showjumping stallion Corporal VDL gained full approval by HSI, and has since embarked on his breeding career “in the flesh” at Drumhowan Stud.


ROYALDIK

sire

As Royaldik settles into work in Ireland, his son Rodermik was in the prize winner's enclosure (3rd) in the Final of the Stepping Stones League April 2019.


CORMINT

The graceful Cormint became the Sire of the Best Six Year Old Showjumper in the Hippomundo Database Rankings February 2019.

He also is the sire of top eventing athlete Nicola Wilson's Chabadu, on the winner's podium at Ballindenisk last month.

Chabadu

"We then travelled to a very sunny Ireland and Ballindenisk with ‘ Chabadu’ competing in his first 3 day event. He led from the dressage to finish with a super double clear to win the 2*L. This result ticks the box as part of his 7yr old World Breeding Championship qualification for later in the year (if he is selected) to go to Le Lion, France. Fingers crossed he continues to progress nicely over the summer" .


PRIMARY

In 2018 and 2019, the winning offspring of Primary flowed full and plenty like First Flow, Thereisnodoubt, Generator City and Tuff Nano.

"First Flow turned in an impressive performance as he notched up a hat-trick in the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Rossington Main Novices' Hurdle at Haydock.

A winner at Lingfield in November and then Newbury last month for Kim Bailey, First Flow was sent off the 9-4 favourite for this near two-mile heat and his supporters were treated to a clear-cut victory."

...and Primary now siring superb foals to sport horse mares.


CRISTO

Cristo is a new and progressive sire for 2019. He joins Drumhowan Stud just as he has become No. 50 in the WBFSH Eventing Sire Rankings and his son, also Cristo (Martin Fuchs) wins the Grand Prix in Florida, February 2019.

The World Championships in Tryon in 2018 was the sport's highlight in equestrianism. Drumhowan Stud’s Vittorio was represented there through the participation of his showjumping son Dittorio S.

At the prestigious KWPN Stallion Grand Prix in s’Hertogenbosch, Don Diablo HX (by Vittorio) claimed the winner's place on the podium.

Selected for the IBC Foal Auction 2018 was the colt son of Vittorio (ex Celano Dam), he sold for €14,000, the top price foal by an Irish based stallion at this sale.


EXQUIS POWERFEE

The RDS Breeders Championship is the “Holy Grail” for many sport horse breeders. Here 4th place was claimed by the former Drumhowan Stud owned mare Cause I Love You Z with her colt foal by Exquis Powerfee.


DUNSANDLE DIAMOND

The National Irish Draught Sales of 2018 in Cavan saw Dunsandle Diamond’s beautiful quality Draught type foals secure the best prices and attract the professional show hunter producers.
