BILLISSIMO (Billy)  
Homebred stunning two year old gelding 24/04/18
Billissimo by Borsalino – Boston x Fidermark out of Little Lady – Laurentianer – Lauries Crusader

Graded premium with Oldenburg as a foal. Oldenburg pink papered passport.

Billy has masses of presence and three expressive, powerful, paces with a very good, active hindleg. He has a super temperament, very friendly and easy to handle and is very bold, easy to lead away from his friends. He has very good, uphill conformation with correct limbs and good feet, with very good straight movement. He is elegant with long limbs and a very beautiful head. He should mature around 16.1hh-16.2hh.
Billy has always had his feet trimmed, been wormed regularly and is fully vaccinated. For the first three months he was stabled at night and out all day and since then he has been turned out in a small herd in a ten acre field so has had plenty of room to move and develop.

Billy’s dam is Little Lady who I have owned for 12 years and has produced 10 foals some of whom can still be seen with me. They all have beautiful heads and fabulous temperaments; several have been sold as very talented but easy amateur horses because of their sensible attitude and pleasing nature. One that I compete Starmaker finished third at the Nationals in the Elementary Freestyle and is now competing advanced medium.
Little Lady was graded Gold medal mare in Westfalen Head Studbook at 3 years old, also graded into Select Studbook BWBS and Oldenburg studbook. She is by Laurentianer a son of the famous Thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusader. Lauries Crusader has been one of the most influential Thoroughbred stallions for German warmblood breeding producing 264 state premium mares and 55 licensed sons. In 2006 Lauries Crusader was awarded stallion of the year by the Hanoverian society, the first time a non–Hanoverian stallion had been awarded this prize. Little Lady also has the famous sire Grande who is ranked in the German Eternal Top 10 sire list. He produces both jumping and dressage horses of the best quality. She has other jumping bloodlines on her mother’s side including Argentan which have resulted in her off spring all having very good canters.

Borsalino was the crowd favourite and undisputed winner of the 2014 Westphalian main licensing in Munster. Borsalino, is a strong, quiet, exciting type, with excellent athleticism and body mechanics.
He is a large stallion with a good foundation and outstanding basic gaits coming from strong hindquarters with a great deal of elasticity and always in rhythm. He shows great quality of movement, with strong topline and self carriage.
Borsalino’s sire, Boston, was Champion stallion in England and finished a very good 30-day performance test in Neustadt-Dosse. Boston’s sire, Jazz, has led the world ranking of dressage horses for many years and was KWPN Stallion of the Year in 2011. He won many international Grand Prix tests. His most successful dressage offspring is Jerich Parzival, who has ruled international dressage with his rider Adelinde Cornelissen for years.
Borsalino’s Grandsire Cocktail won countless Grand Prix competitions with rider Anky van Grundsven.
Borsalino’s dam line received many important premiums and produced numerous sports horses. His dam’s sire, Fidermark, was victorious in Grand Prix tests and promoted the line of Florestan internationally. The Grand dam produced Rostropowitsch, who was successful at Grand Prix tests with rider Christoph Koschel. Through Coriograf B and Landadel, this elite dam line carries the excellent Holstein blood that has been positively influencing the Holstein and Oldenburg breeding for years.
Especially noteworthy is outstanding Furioso II, who formed the modern sport horse in many ways, and who is represented in Borsalino’s blood three times.
