The World Ranked Sire


The continued presence of the International show jumping stallion Vittorio for a third season, from the stud of Paul Hendrix, gives the supreme choice of a proven sire for breeders in Ireland. Vittorio stands superior!



(cristo stats)

SIRE: Calippo (Concerto II x Gunda IV)

His sire Calippo (1.60m) competed at the highest level in the USA, while his dam, the half bred mare Ma Belle makes his pedigree even more exclusive.

DAM: Ma Belle (Martell (TB. - 1.60m) x Beauty 1)

She is the daughter of Martell (xx), the 1.60 show-jumping thoroughbred who was jumped internationally (1.60m) by Emile Hendrix.

Displaying a classic Holstein look, Vittorio is a true “refiner”.



Successful for the Netherlands in CSIOJ Nations Cup in Reims, France, Vittorio was runner-up in Grand Prixs in Zelham and Asten and competed at 1.50m, under Pieter Keunen and Tim van den Oetelaar.
