Dracarys Z is a charismatic, saucy colt with a pedigree that has him headed to the grand prix ring already!
Dracarys' sire is Darcon Z. While Darcon Z does not have a performance record of his own, his sire Darco needs no introduction. For Five consecutive years, the great stallion Darco led the World Breeding Federation of Sport Horse ranking as the best jumping horse progenitor. He currently has the most offspring that competed at Grand Prix level. It is a record which no single sire has ever achieved since the ranking was first developed in 1995. Moreover, Darco is one of the few sires of the present ranking who previously appeared in the original rankings from 1995. In other words, Darco has been at the top for more than fifteen years. Reasons enough to assume, at this time, that Darco is the best jumping horse progenitor ever in show jumping history. With Ludo Philippaerts/BEL, he was placed in Grand Prix, show jumping Nations Cups and World Cups and produced with Sapphire/McLain Ward/USA, Valentina vd Heike/Jos Lansink/BEL, Winningmood/Luciana Diniz/POR and Parco/Ludo Philippaerts etc., absolute top stars of the show jumping sport.
Darcon's Dam's sire, Contender has proven to be one of the most influential sons of Calypso II . Calypso II was an advanced level show jumper with Michael Ruping before retiring to stud where he sired a number of quality show jumping horses. He also sired a number of top grade dressage competitors.Contender was bred by Niko Detlef , Westfehmarn , Contender is out of Gofine who's grand sire was the late Ladykiller xx . Gofine produced several top show jumpers including the international performing horse Ulina .
Contender is the sire of over 40 approved stallions and equally 40 national premium mares. He has dominated German Breeding values for many years now and continues to produce exciting young stallions from which our own gelding Greenacres Captain Z is descended. Contender's influence spreads through Germany mainly through his two sons Cordobes I and II . They were aquired by the Westphalian stud at Warendorf. Cordobes I was the winner of his performance test in 1998 . His jumping score of 142.29 nearly matched that of his famous sire Contender which stood at 146.62. So performance record or not, Darcon has the blood behind him to produce exceptional jumpers.
