Dettori – Zjegis Kahn • 13-06-2019 • chestnut • mare
Onassis Grootenhout’s sire, six-year-old Dettori, was the performance test champion of his birth year. He scored 85 points, with 9’s for his rideability, willingness and carriage. Onassis Grootenhout’s dam’s sire De Niro contributes to this foal’s talent for collection. Last week, his sire Desperado represented the Netherlands at the European Championships in Rotterdam. Ridden by Emmelie Scholtens, the Vivaldi son earned top scores over the past months. Onassis Grootenhout’s granddam Myrthe produced six sporthorses, including Crespo (Small Tour) and Falanda’s full-brother (Z2). Her dam Wanda also has many offspring in the sport, among them the Grand Prix horse Twinkle. With the influence of Rousseau, Ramiro and Doruto, dressage talent is anchored in this dam-line.
