The Holstein sire Clinton was one of the world's best show jumpers under his trainer Dirk Demeersman / BEL. In 2005 the couple had to be content with second place in the Grand Prix of Aachen, just beaten. Before that, both of them finished fourth at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens / GRE and in 2003 they won the Lummen / BEL Grand Prix, second place in the Aachen Nations Cup, third place in the Mechelen / BEL World Cup and silver in the Belgian Championship.
The mother Usminka, who is registered as a Keur, Preferent and Prestatie mare, produced the licensed stallion Lochnagar (by Hugo) and the mare Bruminka (by Nimmerdor), out of which the licensed and internationally successful Iowa (by Achill -Libero H) / Emma Wester / SWE.
The Bruminka daughter Feminka (by Voltaire) is dam of the licensed stallion Olympic W (by Libero H) and grand dam of the licensed stallion Try Time (by Numero Uno).
The dam's sire Heartbreaker competed successfully in World Cup competitions with Peter Geerink / NED, took fourth place in the Grand Prix of Aachen and advanced to "Best Stallion" in Zwolle / NED. The same applies to the Holsteiner Burggraaf, who has been awarded a Preferent stallion in the third generation and who had a great influence on Dutch breeding. He was internationally successful under Roelof Bril, including 1991 winner in the power jump over 2.10 meters in Brabant.
Cordess ‘great-great-grandmother Viola B is a very special mare. The Farn-Camillus daughter, who is equipped with the predicates Model, Preferent and Prestatie, results in the licensed stallion Topas (by Marco Polo), the mare Zyminka (by Abgar xx), who in turn became the mother of the licensed Jodokus (by Ramiro) , and the mare Ominka (by Uppercut), from which the licensed Vindicator (by Amour) comes. It is interesting that Jodokus and Topas are the father and mother-father of the jumping team world and European champion, EC individual third and World Cup third Okidoki / Albert Zoer / NED, who is thus drawn into viola B twice. The marvelous dressage stallion Totilas, who was Dutch dressage champion with a record result in 2009 and European team champion and individual freestyle champion with world record results, also has the mare Viola B as great-great-grandmother in his pedigree. Totila's great-granddam Wominka, who also produced the licensed stallion Racketeer (by Ramiro), and Cordess's great-granddam Usminka are full sisters. Both descend from the race-tested thoroughbred Pericles xx, who is equipped with the coveted Preferent title.
Cordess represents the original Oldenburg dam line 86 / Freiminka (by Godin), from which, among others, the internationally successful show jumpers Marius / Caroline Bradley / GBR, father of John Whitaker's wonderful horse Milton, Palermo / Johan Heins / NED, Warrant / Chris Kappler / USA, Ego / Walter Gabathuler / SUI and Limminka / Alison Firestone / USA.
