Our super mare Qerly Chin continues to show off her broodmare abilities. In the Nekkerhal her great-granddaughter Killer Queen VDM (s. Eldorado van de Zeshoek) won the World Cup with Daniel Deusser. Killer Queen has as dam Derly Chin de Muze (s. For Pleasure - 1.60m) and as granddam Werly Chin de Muze (s. Nabab de Rêve - 1.60m). Killer Queen was bred by Dirk Bruggeman and Ann Carpentier.
Also James Wilson and Imagine de Muze (s. Nabab de Rêve) conquered a jump-off place in the World Cup. The duo finished tenth. Earlier Wilson and Imagine, bred out of the mare Quilina van 't Plutoniahof, were also fourth in the GP.
In the GP2* the victory went to Plato de Muze Z (s. Plot Blue) and Arnaud Gaublomme. Plato is an eight-year-old stallion from the first crop of Plot Blue. Plato's mother listens to the name Iphigeneia de Muze (s. Erco van 't Roosakker), the mare who until recently was under the saddle of Gregory Wathelet and was recently sold to the US. Plato de Muze also finished second in a 1.45m class.
Some more impressive performances were delivered in the Nekkerhal as Thibeau Spits and Bellissimo Z (s. Bamako de Muze) emerged victorious in a 1.45m class.
In the competition Sires of the World, Le Blue Diamond van 't Ruytershof showed himself with his new rider Olivier Philippaerts. The brand new duo finished eighth. In a 1.50m class they also got a good classification and ended in seventh placen.
