This beautiful filly is by Quasi Gold (IFS) who is describe as being willing in his work and has a very balanced character. He is one of over 40 approved sons from the iconic stallion, Quaterback. Quasi Gold’s damline has Brandenburg, Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Kinsky, and Czech roots. His dam, Numees, completed her mare performance test successfully and is listed in the Performance Mare Book A of the FN. The rest of Numees offspring have received premium status without exception. Thoroughbred and Trakehner blood round out Quasi Gold’s pedigree with a refining blood percentage xx/ox of 61.68%. Quaterback’s dam line goes back to Brentano II who is by Bolero. Bolero is also seen in GrandView Bellisario’s pedigree through Belissimo M. This double cross of Bolero seems to have given this filly wings.!

In his 30 Day performance test, Quasi Gold MD had above average scores in almost all categories: Demeanor: 8.75, Trot: 7.75, Canter: 8.25, Walk: 8.0, Rideability: 8.25. As a 4 yr. old in 2013, Quasi Gold went on to win in the young horse classes and young horse dressage tests.

Bella’s bloodlines are impeccable. Her sire is the breathtaking Belissimo M who is a record breaking stallion performance test winner. As sire of rideability Belissimo Meclipses all 8 stallion performance test winners and 3 vice performance test winners from his first three crops are possibly a world record! In addition, 3 Bundeschampions and Blickpunkt a celebrated bronze medal winner at the World Championship for young dressage horses in Verden 2009 – 5 offspring from his first crop (2004) were nominated for the World Championship!

On Bella’s dam side she has a double cross of the outstanding Grannus II, who is by the famous Grannus. Grannus II was imported from West Germany in 1984 and he has Germany’s successful sire line. His progeny has sold throughout Australia as Showjumping, dressage and show horses. Grannus II was very influential over all mares and threw strong characteristics. Some of his well performed and well know progeny include Belcam Glasgow, Belcam Gambler and Genghis Khan. Daktylus is also in Bella’s dam line. Daktylus was a jumping phenomenon and is considered twenty years ahead of his time.

Whilst in Australia, he won up to elementary dressage and was reserve champion novice horse at the New South Wales championships at the age of four. Upon return to Germany, Aachen was sold to the international show jumper Holger Wulschner from Mecklenburg, Germany. In 1995, Holger Wulschner and Aachen took eighth place at the German Championships, won many advanced level jumping tests and even placed up front in puissance. After his career in international jumping, Aachen participated in dressage with Holger Wulschner’s wife, Iris Wulschner.
