Zirocco Blue Aachen 2015, J. Vrieling

Zirocco Blue’s dam, Licorne des Forets, competed at the international 1.50m level and his grand dam, Gekas des Forets, not only competed at 1.40m level but was also called ‘the most winning’ 6-year old in France. Great-grand dam Rapsodie II also competed at 1.40m level.

Palmares

Wherever Zirocco Blue competes all eyes are upon him with his scope, jumping style and efficiency. Under Jur Vrieling he has achieved several very impressive international results. They won the Team Gold Medal at the European Championship and individually were 5th. In the Las Vegas World Cup final they finished 10th. The World Cup of Oslo, the Grand Prix’s of Kopenhagen, Melsomvik (2x) and Geesteren, the Masters in Mechelen - all saw Zirocco wearing the winner’s sash. As a member of the Dutch team they won the Nations Cup of Rotterdam, Kopenhagen and Gijon. In the Dutch Jumping Championship he was 2nd.

Zirocco Blue performs exceptionally well in the sport but also in breeding.

Offspring

2018 Was the year of the champions for Zirocco Blue. Willem Greve won the championship title with the seven-year-olds in the Blom Cup in Ermelo with Gogo Karla V, but at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon there was much more spectacle for Zirocco Blue. His son Eddie Blue won the golden team medal under Devin Ryan with the American team. Eddie Blue finished second in the World Cup Finals earlier and tied one top performance after the other. A second place in the Grand Prix of Ocala, second in GP Toronto, second in Toronto World Cup, second in Nations Cup of Aachen, second in Nations Cup of Sopot, third in Grand Prix of Devon, and so on. It was not for nothing that Eddie Blue was chosen as the best jumping horse in the United States.
