Silverstone's sire, Champion du Lys, won many Grand Prix with Ludger Beerbaum and also the Derby of Hamburg. His sire, Laeken, also
jumped internationally and is, just like Le Mexico, a son of the Furioso xx son Mexico. Furthermore, we find the twice-Olympic stallion
Carthago, who also sires strongly in the jumping direction. Then the Ramiro - Gotthard son, Renomee, also sired more international
jumping horses. The thoroughbreds Thuswin xx and Anblick xx provide the necessary blood.
Silverstone's dam, Marthago, is a real Holstein breeding mare. She became ‘Keur’ and she received in her EPTM test, three times an 8
and a 9 for jumping. His grand-dam, Aline, is the dam of the stallion Laralle and the international jumping horse Corniola.
Silverstone received the highest points, during the Stallion Test, ever for jumping in years: 9 for scope, 8.5 for technique, 9.5 for
power and 9 for jumping talent. He finished in 1st place for jumping and a 3rd overall.
Silverstone is doing very well in the Stallion competition and placed 2nd in the total classification for 2005 and has now placed highly
several times at 1.30m. He has everything what a stallion needs to compete at the highest level: a lot of scope, carefulness, speed, and
that results in a lot of potential.
Out of his first breeding year one of his sons was selected for the stallion test and placed 5th in the jumping bred final of the stallion
