Welcome to the 2019 Belmont House Stud Stallion Catalogue Last year Belmont House Stud and its horses, particularly the stallions, had an amazing season during which many of our goals and dreams came true. It was a great achievement and the success of our horses speak for themselves, proving that here at Belmont, we offer stallions not only with top genetics, but also stallions that are successful at major competitions. Our homebred Celtic Hero B Z, while ridden by Damien Griffin, qualified for the Dublin Horse Show at the RDS - he qualified for the final and placed 6th in a very competitive class. His consistent results got him a ticket to represent Ireland at the prestigious World Breeding Championship in Lanaken, however his sale to American Nations Cup rider Heather Caristo Williams meant that the stallion left Ireland for the United States instead. Once over there, Celtic Hero B Z continued to shine; competing at the South American Young Horse Class, where in the final he finished in the top 15. This year already successful in the 7 year-old classes at WEF, the future of Team Caristo and Celtic Hero B Z looks bright! In 2019 Celtic Hero B Z will be available by frozen semen. Damien was also the jockey in charge of Ganesh Hero Z and together they had an exceptional season, winning not only the Dublin qualifier in Barnadown out of 100 starters, both qualifiers at the RDS and finishing 3rd in the finals. Ganesh Hero Z proved that he doesn’t just have a topclass pedigree, but that he is also a superior competition horse. Ganesh Hero Z is now sold to an International Investment Group and will be exclusively available at Belmont for this season only. This is a unique opportunity for the Irish breeder, aiming to breed high quality showjumpers or eventers as Ganesh Hero Z offers access to one of Europe’s most sought after bloodlines, a true athlete with over 70% xx blood.

Mr Lincoln B was aimed at the 4 year-old championship during the Cavan International show where he qualified for the preliminary and subsequently the final of the competition. Although still green Mr Lincoln B, ridden by Damien, finished impressively in 4th place and left for his new home in Germany at the end of 2018. In 2019 we have his full brother, Mr Quincy B at stud: an exceptional young stallion, 2018 winner of the RDS qualifier, out of the strong damline of a 1.60m jumper Wandonga, by the very popular Zangersheide based sire Aganix du Seigneur. As Luc Henry rightly quoted: “Mr Quincy B has it all to become a top horse and has the genetics to breed horses for the top sport.” Our magnificent newcomer Kassanova Hero B Z by Gregory Wathelet’s mount Kassander van’t Roosakker is another exciting addition to Belmont House Stud’s 2019 stallion roster. Equipped with carefulness, scope, power and size, Kassanova will surely win some Irish hearts and produce some impressive foals! As proactive and responsible breeders, we felt it was important to test all of our stallions for the hereditary diseases PSSM and WFFS and can confirm that all stallions are free from those genetic defects. Committed to offering honest and experienced breeding advice, we look forward to discussing the requirements for your mares to help you make the best possible choices for breeding future champions!

Breeding and Producing Future Champions We are very excited about the stallions on offer this year and believe that we have an exceptional selection of performance genetics, both proven and upcoming. Here is what people have to say about our stallions:

Ganesh Hero Z Ganesh is perhaps the most exciting young stallion to have ever stood in Ireland. He has the potential to make a big contribution to both showjumping and eventing bloodlines in Ireland” Padraig McCarthy of MGH Sport Horses. Team and individual silver medallist at the World Equestrian Games Eventing 2018 “Ganesh Hero Z at his young age has already shown that he’s got so much power, ability and scope. Without a doubt he is a horse for the top sport” Damien Griffin of Lissyegan Stables, rider of Ganesh Hero Z “Everyone is looking for thoroughbred blood, Ganesh has it on the sire side out of possibly the best damline in Europe. I think people are mad if they don’t use him while Ganesh is in the country, I have a few in foal to him including Arabella.” Andrew Hughes of Ennisnag Stud

Mr Quincy B “An exceptional young stallion out of an exceptional damline. Mr Quincy B has it all to become a top sport horse and has the genetics to breed horses for the top sport”. Luc Henry of Stud Hero

Celtic Hero B Z “Celtic Hero B Z was always super careful as his record shows, his technique and ability is second to none. The feeling he gives you at the jump combined with his ridability is something that you don’t get in many horses.” Damien Griffin of Lissyegan Stables, former rider of Celtic Hero B Z “Celtic Hero B Z is a brave & athletic stallion with a huge heart. He is lovely to ride and easy to work around. An all around top-level horse”. Heather Caristo-Williams of Team Glenview, current rider of Celtic Hero B Z

Stetter “Stetter has everything that a rider can wish for in a top competition horse; scope, carefulness and “a willingness to perform at his best” that is second to none!” Claudia Gisler, former rider of Stetter

Kassanova Hero B Z “So far Kassanova shows an exceptional temperament, carefulness and potential, as well as size and the top genetics to make him an interesting choice for the Irish Breeders.” Andrea Etter of Belmont House Stud
