BREEDER: VDL Stud, Beers
Goodluck originally came to us as a 3 year old in 2014, after winning the AES stallion approvals. Impressing breeders with his type and blood, he covered a small book of mares. Staying here until he was 6, he bred only good foals, and as we now know, they are very good athletes! From his first crop 3 year olds sold for up to €45,000! And now in 2021 we see the proof of our belief in this stallion….he was represented in the World Championships for young horses in both showjumping and eventing, where his offspring were placed well.
Goodluck was the convincing Champion at the AES stallion approvals. He won the 4-year old Championship at the Cavan International Horse show. Granddam has brought several jumphorses competing at S-level. This son of Baltic has the sharpness of his sire and the performance genes of his grandsires Cassini I and Lord.
Goodluck himself competed at the world championships as a 7 year old, he jumped numerous Grandprix in Ireland with his then rider Neal Fearon, taking some good wins and places up to 1.50mt level. His career was interrupted with an injury, but thankfully he was able to return to sport in 2021 where he was in the prizes in the Grandprix of Opglabbeek under the saddle of James Billington.
Now back here with us to breed again, we are thrilled to be able to bring a stallion that has nothing to prove, and everything proven with his own and his children’s performances.
From an outstanding damline, his Cassini 1 dam is already responsible for multiple international performers, and with the highly regarded international star Baltic VDL as his sire, there is no question about the genetics of Goodluck VDL
