For Pleasure must finally hand over lead to Chacco-Blue

Jun 17, 2019

For the first time in two years, For Pleasure must now relinquish his leading position on the world ranking of absolute top progenitors.
For a long time, the championship horse of Lars Nieberg and Marcus Ehning was able to keep his competitors on the Dynamic IPV (the list that always looks back 365 days) at a distance.

At first it was mainly Cornet Obolensky, but last year Chacco-Blue came along. With an enormous number of offspring currently in international sport: 485, almost four times as many as For Pleasure (136).
Chacco-Blue is now not only the stallion with the largest number of offspring in international sport (with the exception of Diamant de Semilly, who has 688!), these children also deliver on average the best performances, including the most clear rounds in 1.60 m.
Cornet Obolensky is now in second place, For Pleasure (third) is being followed at close range by Casall.
