Sezuan – Pedigree Corrected

Sezuan was the star at this year’s Danish Warmblood licensing. With such impressive movements, the black stallion, exhibited by his owners, Andreas Helgstrand/Denmark and the couple, Arlette Jasper-Kohl and Professor Edwin Kohl, quickly became the spectator’s darling in Herning/Denmark. At his 10-day test which he took afterward, also in Herning, Sezuan proved his outstanding rideability by receiving the highest scores. He moved into the Vice World Champion’s stallion stables where he has gained a reputation of being a magnet for mares.  

Parentage verification carried out by the Danish Warmblood Verband has now shown that Blue Hors Romanov, who took sixth place on the team in the EC, is not his sire. His sire is the two-time Champion Stallion, Blue Hors Zack (by Rousseau-Jazz-Belisar), born in 2004, who has sired many highlights in sport and breeding.  Blue Hors Zack was the sire of three of the four premium stallions in total at the Danish licensing in 2012, including Zonik who is also stationed with Andreas Helgstrand. 

“We were totally surprised about the result of parent verification. But that does not diminish the quality of our Sezuan in any way because he comes from one of today’s strongest performance mare lines and the top sires Blue Hors Zack, Blue Hors Don Schufro and Lionell are found in a direct line”, commented Andreas Helgstrand, in agreement with Arlette Jasper-Kohl and her husband, Edwin Kohl.
