LAURIER D’ALLOYS C: 2012 Hanoverian colt by Landkonig is a big beautiful bright bay colt with tons of chrome. He is a lovely, correct, large moving boy who inherits his sire’s quiet temperament and powerful jump and exceptional ridability. As a yearling, Laurier effortlessly jumped the 4′ paddock fence to be with his friends! Laurier is well started, and jumping 3′ courses with ease. He will excel in the hunter ring.
Laurier’s sire, Landkönig, is in fact the highest rated jumper listed, standing in the U.S. He is listed in the 2009 Stallion yearbook with a jumper breed value of 135 and 140 for ability, slightly higher than super producer and 2007 stallion of the year Argentinus. Laurier’s Dame lines include such greats as Pablo, and many champion Selle Francaise bloodlines such as Huit de Coeur and Furioso.
Landkönig has produced, from his first foal crop, a licensed Hanoverian stallion son and in 2002 broke the record for producing the highest selling jumper ever in the history at the Hanoverian Elite auctions in Germany. Laurier’s half brother, Lantinus, sold for Euro 215,000 as a four year old, also setting the record price for the Hanoverian auction year, something never done by a jumper!
Landkonig’s offspring are known for their superb ridability, athleticism and jumping ability. They make excellent AO prospects.
