Validation’s sire, Vallado, comes from the successful Now or Never M and Saros xx cross that is producing many outstanding young sport horses, premium mares, and approved stallions (Alchimist, Toronto NLD, Uccello, Valentino, Wilton, etc.). At the KWPN judgement of the three-year old progeny in 2003, the following remarks were made about Vallado’s sire, Now or Never M, “The former champion of the stallion show, Now or Never M, of whom it has been made public that he will serve in Germany, scores the highest in this group. He produces correct and strong models, who move correctly, which has resulted in a high percentage of ster predicates”. Now or Never M is from the exceptional bloodlines of Voltaire (jumping index 152 / dressage index 130), Nimmerdor (jumping index 156), and Maykel, sire of the international show jumper, Cavalier. Vallado’s dam, a ster predicate mare, was sired by the improvement Thoroughbred sire, Saros (dressage index 156), who comes from a strong line of successful steeplechasers, race winners, and sport horses. Saros’ dam also produced Swazi, the sire of the good Trakehner stallion, Consul. Vallado’s second dam, a keur predicate mare, was sired by the Holsteiner stallion, Important. Vallado’s third dam, Jacaranda, produced Baranda, dam of the approved stallions, Alchimist, Gouverneur, and Uccello, and Feranda who was successful in dressage in addition to producing the approved stallion, Terrano. Jacaranda was sired by the Holsteiner stallion, Amor (jumping index 139), who was a very successful sire with Dutch mares producing many international competition horses and approved stallions.
Validation’s dam, Rexana, earned 50 bonits from the Holsteiner Verband at her mare approvals in Germany and is a Premium Select mare. She is the dam of two approved stallions, Validation S by Vallado and Casciendo S by Cassiano, as well as 100% Premium foals. Her dam, Eibe III, is a product of the very successful Capitol I / Sacramento Song xx cross which has produced successful showjumpers such as Campesino, Campione, and Capitalist and she is a full sister to the international sport horse, Cassandra. His third dam, Rasandra, is a full sister to the international sporthorse and approved stallion, Sympathico, and Nalome, dam of the approved stallion, Le Noir, international sport horse, Leonidas 40, and D-Lucca, dam of the approved stallion, Caron. Rexana’s Holsteiner stamm line, 2067, has produced many approved stallions and international showjumpers including Landstreicher, Lausbub, Leonardo, and Lordon 3.
