Coriano, Condios' Sire, Takes 6th Place in German Showjumping Index
CORIANO (Corrado I x Lord), the sire of Morningside Stud's jumping sensation CONDIOS (Coriano x Landgraf I), has ascended to the top tier of German sires according to a study released at the end of December by the German Federation.
The study's purpose was to determine the breeding values of German-based sires. The study used information on 350,000 horses and included results from mare tests, stallion tests, and, above all, showjumping competition results.
Germany's top-10 sires, as reported in "FN-Aktuell" (http://www.fn-aktuell.de), are:
1. Stakkato, 169 breeding
value (b/v), 78 accuracy.
With a breeding value of 158, Coriano is 58% superior in his breeding value to the average sire included in this largest and most sophisticated analysis of German horses ever undertaken.
"We find these
results published by the German Federation to be very interesting and
important," states Tom Reed, the owner of Morningside Stud and Condios.
"We have been telling breeders for over two years that Condios has
within him incredible showjumping genes that should be paired with excellent
Irish mares to produce the showjumpers of the future: the Irish Warmblood.
And with Condios continuing to excel in showjumping competitions on the
continent, Coriano's value as a sire can only increase in the years ahead!"
