V.I.P. can be called a descendant of "the new generation of the future".
Father Nixon is a cocktail of the best that BWP breeding has to offer. He is a half-brother of none other than Emerald and Diamanthina van 't Ruytershof, both extremely successful in both sport and breeding at the very highest level. In 2016, for example, Emerald managed to achieve 2nd place at the World Cup finals in Gothenburg. Emerald was also part of the 2016 Dutch Olympic team in Rio. In 2017, he was the winner of the Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League in Chantilly. Nixon's sire, Denzel van 't Meulenhof is a son of the now legendary Narcotique de Muze, who had many successes at 1m60 level, and is also dam of Jenson and Iron Man van 't Meulenhof.
Nixon is highly sought after by breeders as well as buyers. In both 2018 and 2019, he was the most popular stud at the BWP, which earned him the Young Stallion of the Year Award. Daughter Rosie van 't Netehof (Nixon van 't Meulenhof x Cadeau de Muze) became price highlight during Prinsjesdag 2017. In addition to his successful career in breeding, he is also breaking through on the international stage with Harrie Smolders in the saddle. At the beginning of 2021, they achieved a 12th place in Salzburg with their first start at 1m50 level. The future looks bright for this beautiful stallion, because for Axel Verlooy he is already a candidate for the Olympic Games in Paris 2024.
Dam Sterre was bred by the de Craene family, whose breeding farm Van den Bisschop achieved fame far beyond our borders. Her father, Di Cantero van ter Hulst, is a typical big-framed son of world-class progenitor Diamant de Semilly, who stands out with his scope and sharpness on the jump. With successes in the PAVO stallion competition and a 3rd place in the stallion competition for 7-year-olds at Jumping Mechelen, he is on the edge of an international career. Di Cantero's mother Noah is a daughter of the legendary Corrado I and already gave five international jumpers. Di Cantero is bred out of the famous Holsteiner lineage 18A2 and closely related to many Grand Prix show jumpers and approved stallions.
In the mother line of V.I.P., we find the international jumping horses L'aventure (Nicolas Vermeulen), Canaille GP (1m45 Katerina Offel) and Kentucky.
