The comeback of a gifted sci-fi
Gastronom de Hus alias Gastronom Z returns to France.
Current Third WORLDWIDE ranking of fathers of winners aged 13 and under (for 2019 and 2020, prproducts in CSI).
This exceptional classification, he acquired it in only three years of breeding in France (2008 to 2010) and by serving almost only SF mares; An exceptional genetic pairing and quite frankly unique. BLH noticed this and therefore had to react.
Bought at the age of 8 from the stables of the Amazon Kattarina Offel by Xavier Marie, owner of Haras de Hus, the powerful son of Carthago won several Grand Prix under the saddle of Kevin Staut then world No. 1, in particular the coveted King Cup of Madrid.
Later, the stallion, very easy to use, was acquired by the Doem family. The young Belgian Arnaud Doem immediately won in Mons (CSI4 *) the first GP in which he participated.
Performances at this level and with a young rider are, in our opinion, the best sporting test that we can hope for from a future father.
▶ His pedigree
Carthago x Landgraf via Leuthen I, this sounds pleasant to genetics enthusiasts who recognize the value of the C / L cross of Holstein.
It is of course also the cross of Cartani which appears in the HorseTelex ranking, all ages combined, but Carthago is first and foremost the sire of 105 international horses of level 160cm. A sure bet, especially since he is considered one of the best father-makers in the world.
▶ His mother: Flora May
A mother Lucinda Z who is talked about in the present tense:
RIMINI (CSO 1m60) winner in 3 and 4 *
SOLID GOLD Z (Show jumping 1m60) Stallion belonging to Zangersheide, Winner in 4 * with Christian Ahlmann
HUS GASTRONOMY (CSO 1m60) Winner in GP 4 * with K. Staut then A.Doem
We will also quote the promising CONCONDR PS born in 2012 and already international winner in 2020
All these accomplished athletes come from Lucinda Z or one of his daughters.
▶ Its production
It is in the light of two French generations of foals born between 2009 and 2010 that BLH looks at this Talent stallion whose 39 SF offspring are currently running internationally:
Vegas de la Folie SF (Gastronom de Hus x Ephebe for ever) :
5th CSI3 * 2020 Aachen (GER) (1.60m)
4th CSI4 * 2019 St. Tropez - Grimaud (FRA) (1.55m)
