PUTTEN - Zinestar VW (Zinelord VDL), owned by Yvonne te Vaanholt and Raymond Wolthuis, was declared General Champion of the national foal championship Eventing in Putten.
We found the champion a very beautiful foal, chic, good movement too, a rightful champion,' said jury member Kees van den Oetelaar.
Judge Marc van der Beken was lyrical about the winning colt: 'I have been around for many years, but this is approaching perfection. Sire Zinelord is very young, out of the Guidam line, a KWPN bloodline that went to Hannover, and now a young stallion bred by VDL. With Stakkato and Calido behind it. Really one of the best foals I have ever seen in my life. Not as an eventing fan but more in general. Movement, interested but not anxious, we also explained that to the public. Really made for eventing, which we did not immediately think from the paper. If you go to an auction with such a foal...well, it is a top foal.'
