The offspring of Cordess are characterised by modern type, magnificent faces, long-leggedness and generous canter. Under saddle they confirmed the high expectations. They qualified for the Bundeschampionat and were already convincing in jumping competitions up to advanced level. So far, Cordess has produced four licensed sons, including Continent, the second Reserve Champion of the Westphalian licensing in 2018, as well as Cognito, Come to Alice and Cordessio.
There are not many stallions who combine inherent performance and hereditary strength as masterfully as Cordess.
Cordess offspring successful up to the heavy class.
As the offspring of two proven performers - Clinton and Heartbreaker - Cordess is genetically closely related to legendary sire Cornet Obolensky, but at the same time also carries the blood of the Oldenburg dam line 86, which produced millionaire stallion Totilas among others. Cordess' offspring are also in the tradition of these popular genetics: Their successes already range from Bundeschampionat qualifications to the advanced level; four Cordess sons have already received the licensing seal, one offspring was 2nd Reserve Champion at the Westphalian licensing 2018. Thus Cordess combines inherent performance and hereditary strength in a masterful way.
Course heros of exceptional quality, with outstanding pedigree and own performance. For years, Cordess was internationally successful at 5-star level with Philipp Weishaupt and Christian Kukuk, among others in Berlin, Offenburg, Nörten-Hardenberg, Kiel, Hong Kong, Monte Carlo, Paris and Estoril as well as at the Global Champions Tour in Shanghai. In 2017, he won the Grand Prix of Braunschweig, among others.
The Holstein sire Clinton was one of the world’s best show jumpers under his trainer Dirk Demeersman/BEL. In 2005, the pair had to settle for second place in the Grand Prix of Aachen, narrowly beaten. Prior to that, they both placed fourth at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens/GRE and secured victory in the Grand Prix of Lummen/BEL in 2003, second place in the Nations’ Cup of Aachen, third place in the World Cup show jumping competition in Mechelen/BEL and silver in the Belgian Championships.
The dam Usminka, who is registered as a Keur, Preferent and Prestatie mare, produced the licensed stallion Lochnagar (by Hugo) and the mare Bruminka (by Nimmerdor), who produced 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 granddam of the licensed Try Time (by Numero Uno).
The dam’s sire Heartbreaker was successful 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 Holstein stallion Burggraaf, who was awarded Preferent in the third generation and had a great influence on Dutch breeding. He was internationally successful under Roelof Bril, among other things winning the 2.10 metre show jumping competition in Brabant in 1991.
Cordess’ great-great-granddam Viola B is a very special mare. Out of the Farn Camillus daughter, who was awarded the predicates Model, Preferent and Prestatie, come the licensed stallion Topas (by Marco Polo), the mare Zyminka (by Abgar xx), who in turn became the dam of the licensed Jodokus (by Ramiro), and the mare Ominka (by Uppercut), who produced the licensed Vindicator (by Amour). It is interesting to note that Jodokus and Topas are sire and dam’s sire, respectively, of the show jumping team World and European Champion, European Championships individual bronze medallist and World Cup bronze medallist Okidoki/Albert Zoer/NED, who is thus twice inbred to Viola B. The dressage wonder stallion Totilas, Dutch Dressage Champion in 2009 with a record result and European Team Champion and European Freestyle Individual Champion with a world record result, also has the mare Viola B as a great-great-granddam in his pedigree. Totilas’ great-granddam Wominka, who also produced the licensed stallion Racketeer (by Ramiro), and the Cordess great-granddam Usminka are full sisters. Both are descended from the race-tested thoroughbred Pericles xx, who was awarded the coveted Preferent title.
Cordess represents the original Oldenburg dam line 86/Freiminka (by Godin), which produced, among others, the internationally successful show jumpers Marius/Caroline Bradley/GBR, sire of John Whitaker’s wonder grey Milton, Palermo/Johan Heins/NED, Warrant/Chris Kappler/USA, Ego/Walter Gabathuler/SUI and Limminka/Alison Firestone/USA.
