Commander Bond

 Commander Bond (°2016) is a direct son of the Holstein progenitor Corrado I (°1985, Holsteiner Stamm 6879). As a 7-year-old, Corrado achieved his first international successes. In 1993, Franke Sloothaak won with Corrado for instance the Leeuwarden Grand Prix, in 1994 the World Cup class in Dortmund and the ‘Nordrhein-Westfalen-Preis’ in Aachen and in 1996 the World Cup class in Aarhus. For many years Corrado I was one of the most coveted stallions of the Holsteiner Verband. Logically, his offspring inherited his almost unlimited scope and performed at the highest level. Just think of Clinton (4th at the Athens Olympic Games), Cher (Piet Raijmakers), Corrada (Peter Charles), Cosima (Markus Fuchs), Think Twice (Leopold van Asten) and so on.

 

Commander Bond is also through his dam line (Holsteiner Stamm 1463) heavily hereditary. His dam, Valencia IX, is by the Olympiad stallion and progenitor For Pleasure. Her dam, Indira XVII, is known as the granddam of the outstanding showjumper Cimano E (5*, 1m60 level, Robert Smith). Indira’s granddam produced D’Olympic, winner of the stallion performance tests and later an international dressage horse. Equally interesting is that further on in the pedigree we find Lord and Cor de la Bryère (alias Corde). Lord was probably the best son of the thoroughbred Ladykiller, whereas Corde seemed to be invaluable to many showjumping studbooks.
