Uldrik 457 Crowned World Champion in Leeuwarden!

Recently approved stallion Uldrik 457 was yesterday crowned 2010 KFPS Champion at the annual Stallion show held in Leeuwarden. The beautiful son of Dries 421 was approved late last year with record breaking performance scores. Runner up was another young stallion Norbert 444 whose first offspring performed consistently well at the foal inspections during 2009.

Uldrik 457 (Dries 421 x Tsjerk 328) is the first son of Jasper 366-son, Dries 421. Uldrik is a very correct built, developed stallion. His strengths are primarily in the excellent use of the hind leg. The driving and riding tests resulted in an unprecedented score of a 9.5 for the trot, and for the use of the hind leg he also gained a 9. Uldrik is a stallion that is very consistent.

Uldrick is from Stam line 12 but does share some family resemblance with Antsje as Olof 315 is his great grandad who is also Antsje's Damsire and his grandad is Jasper 366, Olofs son and from the same Stam line (27) as Antsje and also last years Champion Maurus 441!! We are in good company :-D

Thanks for posting this Vicky, wow what a trot!
Fabulous to see Olof's blood in the top horses - Jasper, Dries and now the World Champion Uldrik, as my boy is also by Olof.
Maybe one of these years I will get to Leeuwarden to see the spectacle first hand. Not easy getting someone to look after my 3 horses in January though.

I really like the Olof stamp - nearly every friesian that **really** catches my eye has Olof in thier line ;-) There was a very nice 'olof' mare advertised for sale last year - good job I didnt have the money! Or maybe a damn shame I didnt! she looked very nice indeed :-)
