Power and eagerness from French soil
Estoril du Cedre shows exceptional power and eagerness over the jump. With his remarkable qualities under Siebe Leemans competing in the 1.45m, it seems that he is not only following in his famous uncle’s hoofprints in terms of colour and model. With his fighting spirit and athletic qualities, Quickly de Kreisker was for many years one of the most remarkable jumping horses in the international sport. With the, at top level, previously inexperienced Moroccan Abdelkebir Ouaddar, he achieved a fantastic set of results. The pair came 13that the WEG in Caen, 11thin the World Cup Final in Lyon and was also the pride of their owner King Mohammed VI of Morocco during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The extremely competitive Quickly de Kreisker also won the Grand Prix in Paris, was second in the CGT in Chantilly and achieved many more victories and high placings in other classes at CSI5*-level. In 2015 this even took him to the first place on the FEI-World ranking list for jumping horses.
Strong dam line
Estoril du Cedre’s dam Urgada de Kreiker is a full-sister of this Quickly de Kreisker and is therefore, like him, a descendent of Diamant de Semilly, another French celebrity, who in his turn was number one on the WBFSH-ranking list of best jumping horse producers. Just as valuable is Estoril du Cedre’s granddam Briseis d’Helby (s. Laudanum xx). This legendary broodmare produced no fewer than four approved stallions and eight international jumping horses, three of which are competing at 1.60m-level! She is one of the most valuable products out of Estoril du Cedre’s strong French dam line that also produced the stallion First de Launay (s. Laudanum xx).
Sire Jarnac progenitor of international jumping horses
With so much genetic force from the dam, we could almost forget Estoril du Cedre’s anything but ordinary sire. This Jarnac also successfully competed in a big championship (European Championships in 2011 with the Spaniard Julia Arias), also won a high-ranked Grand Prix (that of Chantilly in 2009 with the Frenchman Timothee Anciaume) and to this day is known for being a progenitor of international jumping horses. More than 100 are classified as international with the FEI, a large number of which at the highest level such as Qurack de Falaise HDC (Kevin Staut and Delphine Perez), Reggae du Tillard (Julio Arias), Soprano de Grandry (Florian Angot), Olympique Libellule (Timothee Anciaume) and Ulhane de Conde (Carlos Lopez). Finally, Jarnac contributes the valuable blood of his sire Ryon d’Anzex to Estoril du Cedre. This Anglo-Arab took part in the WEG in The Hague in 1994.
