SSF is pleased to announce the acquisition of the AES approved stallion GAUDI (Totilas x Annabel, by De Niro). Gaudi is the first and only Totilas’ offspring standing in North America.
A 2011 Dutch warmblood stallion, Gaudi is out of the elite preferent prestation mare Annabel (De Niro x Romancier). Bred by the Jansen family at Stable Joppe in The Netherlands, Gaudi has an exceptional pedigree and is a maternal brother to the KWPN licensed stallions Bretton Woods and Chagall D&R, and he is from the same dam line that produced the stallion Four Legends KS.
Scot is thrilled to have imported Gaudi. “Our primary interest in Gaudi is for our own breeding program,” he said. “His breeders, the Jansen family, are friends, so we have known Gaudi since his birth. He has a fantastic pedigree and mare line. His dam leads the KWPN index for dressage mares. She has produced top, top sport and keuring horses. His pedigree also offers us, and other breeders, a stallion free of Jazz, Flemmingh, and Ferro. On top of the pedigree, he has a fantastic character and lots of power and expression in his movement.”
“Due to family and work commitments, we haven’t stood a stallion in many years,” Scot explained. “Carol and I are refocusing our lives a bit, so it is a good time for us to import another stallion. For the 2018 breeding season, Gaudi will stand with Wim Cazemier, at his facility in Indiana.”
SSF is running a special introductory offer of a $500 discount for breeders who book to Gaudi by January 1, 2018. For more information on Gaudi, visit his Facebook page.
