Blue Hors Zack enters Horsetelex Ranking as number 1

May 4, 2018 15.38

His first ten offspring in the international sport bring Zack at the top of class B, Romanov in the lead in class A of the IPV Horsetelex Ranking.

With his first ten offspring in the international sport Blue Hors Zack enters the Horsetelex dynamic IPV ranking class B on the number 1 spot. Zack leaves Johnson, Spielberg and Vivaldi behind. Blue Hors Hotline is placed fifth in this group where stallions needs to have at least 10 offspring with the maximum age of 12.

The ten offspring that put their sire Zack on first place are: Glock’s Zonik, Blue Hors Zepter, Sezuan, Blue Hors Zatchmo, Zigzag, Fredendals Zig Zag, Zick Zack Toftegard, Blue Hors Zee Me Blue, Zaouira and Zancas Klint.
Glock’s Zonik is the most successful of these ten. He is bred out of a Romanov x Don Schufro-mare. Remarkable is that Blue Hors Don Schufro is five times damsire of the Zack offspring above and his full sister Fiesta´s Girl is the dam of Blue Hors Zatchmo.

Don Schufro himself is ranked number 6 in class A off the IPV Ranking. His daughter Weihegold OLD is the number one of the world. Again his role as damsire is remarkable in this group. That secures him a lot of points for the ranking as well. Of the 20 offspring that bring his former stable-mate Romanov to the top in class A, six are bred out of a Don Schufro daughter. Don Schufro’s son Blue Hors Don Romantic is placed 11th and his eldest approved son Diamond Hit is the number 18 of class A.

Blue Hors Hotline appears in both classes of the IPV ranking. He is number 5 in class B and 21 in class A.
