Once again, this frozen embryo represents the best of Belgian breeding.
Cornet Obolensky is a result of the magical combination of Clinton and the Heartbreaker mare Rabanna van 't Costersveld. Via Heinrich Ramsbrock the Westphalian approved Cornet Obolensky came to the Ukrainian breeder Valentyn Nychyporenko, who kept him for German breeding and later entrusted him to the German rider Marco Kutcher. Marco and Cornet had a very successful sporting career, but within breeding the stallion caused a real revolution. In his first year of breading, he produced, among others, Cristallo I (1m60 with Henrik von Eckermann), Cornado NRW (1m60 with Marcus Ehning), Conte Bellini (1m60 with Kristaps Neretieks), Cornet d'Amour (1m60 with Daniel Deusser), Cornet's Cristallo (1m60 with Marco Kutcher) and Cocoshynsky (1m60 with Emanuele Gaudiano). Later, Comme Il Faut, Clooney, Balou de Reventon OS and Corbinian followed. Currently 200 of his offspring jump at 1m45 level and no less than 121 of his offspring jump at 1m55 level and higher. On the age of 7, 25% of the offspring of Cornet's first year already jumped at class S.
The success of Cornet Obolensky's offspring is unprecedented. The whole line is popular at selections and auctions, but continues to be confirmed especially in the sport.
Modena D'auvrey is a granddaughter of Nikita, a mare that has meant a lot for BWP breeding. Nikita is the mother of three 1m60 horses, a 1m50 horse, four 1m40 horses and 3 approved stallions. Among them are just anyone: Toulon and Vancouver d'Auvrey, respectively BWP ambassador and elite stallion. Toulon was the best-known stallion of the stallion selection as a 3-year-old and then ended up in the hands of Luc Tilleman. He was trained under the saddle of Wilm Vermeir, after which Hubert Bourdy took over the reins and continued to build on Toulon's fantastic record: a first place during the GCT of Sao Paulo, second in the GP of Spruce Meadows (Calgary) and also second in the Nations Cup of Rome. He also finished fourth in the GCT of Valkenswaard, fifth in the GCT of Arezzo and ninth in the GCT of Cannes.
Offspring such as Bernadien van Westuur (Jillian Terceira), Athena (Charlie Jayne), Dadjak ter Puttenen (Omer Karaevli), Edesa's Banjan (Geir Gulliksen), etc. all followed in their sire’s footsteps. Also the full brother of Toulon, Vancouver d'Auvrey, had nice successes under 3 riders: first with Danielle for the USA, then with Bernardo Alves and finally Rodrigo Pessoa took place in the saddle. His international successes include placements and victories at CHIO Aachen, GCTs of Estoril, Chantilly, Monaco and Valkenswaard, the World Cup series in Europe and the USA and the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.
Toulon and Vancouver have a full sister, Quinta, who is not only dam of Modena D'auvrey but also of the very meritorious breeding stallion Deauville de la Vie and the 1m45 horses Flobecq de la Vie, The d'Acheronte and Carina Fz.
Modena herself is dam of the 1m60 horse Gaverdi, who finished 4th in the GP at Rockwood, Canada, and picked up tests in Tryon and Calgary. Also another offspring, Cyclade du Barbin, is breaking through at the highest level. Recently she was able to stand in the prize giving of the 4*GP in St.Tropez.
