This colt, is probably the most exclusive colt to appear at any auction in 2023! Both parents have stood on the podium of the Longines Global CHampions Tours Grand Prix and the both have jumped in the big championships. The colt is sired by the great Bacardi VDL, who had a stellar career with Edwina Tops-Alexander and Jannika Sprunger, jumping the WEG in Tryon, and finishing 2nd in the Doha LGCT Grand Prix, winning the Dubai World Cup and finishing 3rd in Rotterdam.
However the dam of NAME is even more exclusive. Lintea Tequila is to be considered as one of the best horses that Edwina Tops-Alexander ever rode, maybe even as one of the best mares that ever jumped, regardless of the rider.
She finished Top 10 in no less than an incredible 13 5* Grand Prix, winning in Doha and Miami Beach. They were an example of harmony and unity which led them to finish 9th individually at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, with one rail in the 2nd round of the final, keeping them out of the jump off for the medals… This is the first time a foal out of this mare is presented at an auction.
