Jabatsa sire is the legendary KWPN Keur Stallion Purioso. Purioso is by the famous sire Furioso II who sired more than 200 State premium mares and 69 approved sons. Purioso was successful at this stallion testing scoring: 8 for free jumping and 9 for jumping under saddle. He has 5 sons approved with the KWPN: Bently, Cantor, Olympic Cocktail, Faldo and Prince Paradiso R. Purioso’s offspring are well know for their fantastic gaits and jumping ability, he is without question an absolute all rounder and the founder of specialized show jumping and dressage pedigree lines.
The most well-known offspring of Purioso in sport are the three Olympic horses he sired: Olympic Wedela, Olympic Ambush and Olympic Cocktail. Wendela and Cocktail are two very different horses in different disciplines, one at the highest level of Jumping the other of Dressage. A very young Jennie Zoer trained the grey mare Wendela [m. Sorhaya by Nimmerdor - El Gaucho xx] herself and became relatively very fast a member of the Dutch team. Highlights of their career were the 10th place at the individual class of the Winter Equestrian Games in Stockholm. Also Balderdash, Curioso, Deeply Impressed, Chanel, Krielens Consult, Harald II, Kijoy for Ever and Zero jumped at the highest levels.
Purioso’s sire Furioso II, who many consider one of the founders of the modern European sport horse breeding and to this day all these years later is still influencing many studbooks in Europe with his sons, grandsons and great-grandsons. You can off course think of Voltaire and Concorde in Holland and Fidelio and son Florestan 1 in Germany. Furioso II [v Furioso xx, damsire Talisman SF] became the symbol of the modern Oldenburg sport horse breeding. Furioso II descends, just as Alinda’s sire Martell from a Thoroughbred [Trebonius xx], Furioso II’s origin is French and Martell’s is Holsteiner. Furioso II produced 200 state premium mares and no less than 68 approved sons, many of them are rendering their services on other continents. Furioso II has certainly influenced breeding on a world wide scale. His full brother is the French stallion Mexico, who’s son Le Mexico became famous in Holland as a real jumping horse producer.
Jabatsa’s dam, Abatsa, is a Ster ‘Preferent, Prestatie’ KWPN mare by the prolific ‘Preferent’ KWPN stallion Roemer. Roemer had an illustrious career as a competitor and sire until his death in 1996. During his long sports career he competed as both an International Grand Prix Jumper and in Grand Prix Dressage arena. He is the sire of: 4 Approved sons, 1 Licensed son, 4 Preferent mares, 111 Star mares, 27 Keur mares, 211 Studbook mares and 75 First Premium foals.
In 1988, Roemer was awarded the predicate of Keur based on quality of offspring. In 1990, he received the predicate of ‘Preferent’ thereby establishing him the first stallion in North American to be awarded this prestigious title and he was the 1st place stallion on the sport index of Dressage horses in Holland.
Abatsa became Ster in 1985 as a three year old, ‘Preferent’ in 2001 and the much coveted ‘Prestatie’ in 2003 due to the successful sports careers of her offspring. At 24, Abatsa is still alive, living with her original breeder and in foal to Perfectum, a young son of Pronto, for 2006.
