Wannadoo’s sire Silverstone Grade B ridden by Philippa Curry and competing between 1.30m to 1.50m classes during 2012/2013 season.
Silverstone's offspring sure know how to jump! The mares Bigeunerin and B. Ocinthe were placed 2nd and 3rd at the Dutch Loose Jumping Championship 2009. His son Winston was Dutch Champion of the 4 year old show jumpers. Bugatti got his approval from the KWPN in 2009 and was placed 3rd in the jumping final of the Stallion Competition 2011/2012.
Silverstone's oldest offspring are competing and winning at the highest level in international classes. Waterstone II (R.Whitaker) won the puissance at the CSI in Stockholm by jumping over 2.12m bareback! Wigeunerin won the Grand Prix at the CSI** in Drachten. Silverstone's offspring is doing well in American hunter classes where his son Listen was awarded the Grand Conformation Hunter 2011.
Silverstone also is a fantastic sire of potential event horses and is described by British and American event horse breeders as, "a jumping phenomenon to the event breeding industry". He throws elegant modern sport horses with athletic paces and a powerful balanced jump. He is the perfect choice to improve the typical event mares.
Silverstone is a son of Champion du Lys, who won many Grand Prix with Ludger Beerbaum and also won the Derby of Hamburg twice. Champion du Lys has won over 60 1.50m classes, as well as the 2003 Hamburg Derby. His charismatic presence and impressive abilities have been demonstrated with rider Ludger Beerbaum in numerous Grand Prix and Nations Cups. Nevertheless, a successful stallion isn’t judged on its competition record alone, but also on the performance of its progeny. Champion du Lys’ offspring are some of the very best. Despite only having been used sparingly for breeding purposes, Champion du Lys has produced top horses such as the approved stallion Caballero. He was the most expensive horse at the PSI Auction in 2006, he won the World Championship for Show Jumping Horses in Lanaken and he is already winning at 1.50m. There are now 19 Champion du Lys offspring competing successfully at 1.50m level. Champion du Lys’ progeny have collectively won over EUR 133,000 on the show jumping circuit. Champion du Lys has inherited excellent French sport genes from his grandsire Mexico (full brother to the famous stallion Furioso II), who has produced innumerable top class sports horses and flourishing stallion lines.
Silverstone's dam Marthago (by two time Olympic stallion, Carthago) is a fantastic Holsteiner brood mare. She was awarded the 'Keur' predicate from the KWPN studbook. She is also the dam of the Zangersheide approved stallion Chuck Z. Grand dam Aline is the dam of the stallion Laralle and the international showjumper Corniola. Silverstone received the highest points, during the KWPN Stallion Test and finished in 1st place for jumping and a 3rd place in the total classification. With Dennis van Tilburg Silverstone won the stallion competition 2006/2007. They did this by winning 3 out of the 4 qualification rounds.
