High Class Type with an Intriguing Pedigree

Our first foal of the year is this really handsome, long-legged colt by Gørklintgårds Shaolin and out of Bari von Buedingen Memorial Trophy winner Laurette. Based on first looks, we feel that we achieved our goals with this cross: an uphill model with long lines, good foundation, and elastic gaits. He is a total charmer with a personable, inquisitive character. At his GOV foal inspection, he was designated Premium with good comments on his gaits, type, and solid foundation. Congratulations to Jeff of Ohio on the purchase of this colt with an eye towards the young horse classes.

Sire Gørklintgårds Shaolin (Gørklintgårds Santos x Quaterback) was approved and finished his stallion test in Denmark. From the same program that produced the US Olympic team Dressage horse Gørklintgårds Dublet, Shaolin is sired by the stallion Gørklintgårds Santos and out of a direct daughter of the celebrated elite stallion and Bundeschampion Quaterback. Further back in the pedigree you find the S-level successful performance horse and breeding stallion Sunny Boy. Shaolin has enjoyed wins to 4th level under Heather Blitz in Wellington, FL.

Dam Laurette was named the recipient of the Bari von Buedingen Memorial Trophy in 2018 for having the highest mare inspection score within the country that year. Her overall score of 8.16 included multiple 9s and 8s and she has been celebrated as a classic Hanoverian mare. She is a direct daughter of licensing champion and Bundeschampion Londonderry, a stallion known within the Hanoverian breed as a source of type and riding horse qualities. A number of top sporthorses boast Londonderry as damsire including double World Champion D'Avie, World Young Horse Bronze Medal-winning Fürsten-Look, and 2020 Nürnberger Burg-Pokal Champion Destacado FRH. Sarajevo comes from the same damline as Danish Olympic Horse Selten HW.
