Gandalf's jumping bloodlines include the famous "G" line ancestry through Grundstein II andGraphit back to Goldfich on his sires side. On the side of Gandalf's dam is the "A" line represented by her sire Aachen, now known as Azzura in Germany, his sire Argentinus, Argentan and Absatz. Aachen (Azzura) represented Germany as a world cup competitor. Aachen's Grandsire Zeus is represented in many breed associations and is still listed in the top 10 sires of showjumpers in the world today.
Gandalf passed his jumping assessment with a score of 85% for scope and has a total rating of 80%.
Although he has not yet competed due to injury we eagerly await as Gandal'f's outstanding progeny to begin their competitive careers.
Queenslands Showjump Riders that have bought or bred a Gandalf Foal are:
Tim Amitrano- Olympian purchased Gandalf's first ever foal a chestnut gelding Larundel Gallant ,this talented yourng horse has been recently sold to an overseas interest.
Tim also bred his lovely showjump mare Ali Cheval to Gandalf in 1998 resulting in a chestnut colt in January 1999.
Ron Parlevliet -Well known successful World Cup Showjumping Competitor bred his mare Classic Flood to Gandalf in 1999 and the resulting foal LAYOYA is pictured below as a Tour finalist at the recent Elysian International Show Jumping Classic.
The well known Raymont Stable also has the ride on a Larundel Gelding bred by Local Veterinarian Stuart Bryce.
Brett Warren also has a Larundel Gandalf horse in his stable.
These young horses with correct and carefull training will demonstrate "Alf's" potency as a all round sire of good Competition horses.
We wish them all the best of luck with their careers.
