De Meern - Stargos VDL (Stakkato Gold x Conthargos) delivered another great performance at the Blom Stallion Competition by winning the 1.20m class M with his rider Iris Hakvoort once again.
The fast and careful Stargos did so in fast times of 60.95 and 31.87 seconds.
Stargos VDL was bred by W. Winkeler, Herzlake (GER).
Wesley de Boer also steered the five-year-old VDL Stud-bred stallion Mcallister VDL (Inaico VDL x Emilion) to two clear rounds (times: 64.60 and 35.99 seconds) to finish fifth in the overall standings.
McAllister was named one of the 2020 KWPN premium stallions.
Six-year-old Levi VDL, ridden by Marcel de Boer, also stayed completely clear in the Z - 1.35 - 1.30m class. E. Reyrink, Diessen (NED) bred Levi VDL.
Double clear in class L - 1.10m was Night Life VDL (b. 2018, Erco van 't Roosakker x Arezzo VDL, breeder: VDL Stud) ridden by Hessel Hoekstra.
When a stallion is approved as a three-year-old, the condition is to participate in the stallion competition as a four- and five-year-old. For older approved stallions, this applies to the current and immediately following year.
