  • William Whitaker about Arielle: 
    ‘She was a nice type and top sport mare’
ET Auction spoke with William Whitaker, about the grey mare Arielle (Acord) that took him to victory at the Mechelen World Cup in 2007: ‘I was very young and riding for my uncle Michael (Whitaker). I had a good junior horse, but all of a sudden, Arielle brought me in the top circuit. She was sent to Michael by the Belgian client Fabien Schreiber. From the beginning, she was great. She was super careful, had a big heart and a big stride. In our first Grand Prix in Kiel, we placed immediately second. Arielle proved to be a consistent mare. She jumped double clear in Nations Cups, had a lot of placings in Great- Britain and jumped her self in the history books in Mechelen, when she won the World Cup. After a succesful indoor season, we qualified for the World Cup Finals, but she got sold to the Emirates two weeks before the final in Gothenburg.’

William Whitaker hopes that now Arielle can give her jumping genes through to the next generation as a broodmare. ‘She was a nice type and proved her self in the sport. I think that’s what you need for a broodmare. For sure it was a perfect choice to partner her up with the stallion Vigo d’Arsouilles. I don’t think there’s a lot of stallions with a sport record as he has. I also saw some lovely offspring by Vigo d’Arsouilles. For sure I’m curious to see her foal!’
  • Vigo d’Arsouilles sires four embryos in this auction. Vigo is currently one of the best breeding stallions. Two of his sons were Zangersheide approved last weekend. The week before two other eyecatchers received approval for SBS studbook. Three Vigo’s are in the final phase of the BWP stallion approvals next weekend and another son will do the KWPN seventy days testing.
  • We have an embryo from the Querly Chin line, probably one of the best in the world. Ensor de Litrange, also from this family, placed fourth in the ’s Hertogenbosch Rolex GP. Ohaj de Regor and Picasso vh Koningsbos won the National Presentatiedag last Saturday, …
  • Glasgow Van ’t Merelsnest (Jur Vrieling), sire of an embryo out of an Olympic mother, placed second in the 1.55m VDL Groep Prize at ’s Hertogenbosch last week.
  • Bamako de Muze has one embryo in the auction. His son Bretling du Paradis Z (Rik Hemeryck) won the GP of Villeneuve-Loubet on Sunday.
  • Gino H, half brother of Hickstead, jumped a spectacular round at the last Stallion Competition in Gesves. He sires two embryos in the auction.
