Condios News Update

Condios (Coriano x Landgraf I), the 7-year-old Holsteiner stallion owned by Morningside Stud, has been approved as a sire by the Australian Warmblood Horse
Association (AWHA) and the New Zealand Warmblood Horse Breeders Association. The AWHA is a full member of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses. Condios (Coriano x Landgraf I) is now approved by seven studbooks in six countries.

The Showjumping Association of Ireland (SJAI) reports that, as of 2 August 2002, Condios has 305 SJAI points. With 201 points required for Grade A status, Condios is one of the youngest Irish-owned horses ever to reach Grade A in Ireland and the youngest to achieve Grade A International status in two countries (Ireland and Denmark).

On August 1 - 4 at the CSIO-Denmark, Condios placed in three international classes. He placed 9th (out of 56 starters) in a 1.40 m. class; 5th (out of 39 starters)
in a second 1.40 m. class; and 8th (out of 47 starters) in a 1.45 m. class. All three placings earned prize money. Riders in these international classes came from
Denmark, Holland, Sweden, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, Great Britain, and Italy and included foreign stars such as Beat Mandli, Willi Melliger,
Markus Fuchs, Di Lampard, and Peter Eriksson.

Beginning 5 August 2002, Condios will go into quarantine until the end of the year to freeze semen for export to Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada,
and the European Union. In 2003, as an 8-year-old, Condios will compete in 1.40 m., 1.50 m., 1.60 m., and Grand Prix classes throughout Europe. The Danish Federation plans to name Condios to some Nation's Cup teams.
