    Default Upper-Class

    Hi, does any one know anything about the KWPN stallion Upper Class? He is by Polansky out of Doliena by Doruto.

    Here is his foal report.

    Polansky x Doruto pref
    Upper-Class showed a uniform collection
    of very well developed, long legged,
    uphill built, riding type foals that stand in
    very good rectangular model. The foals
    move with much self-carriage and suppleness.
    The foreleg should have more
    knee action. The hindleg is used well.
    The head is expressive. The poll has
    good length. The neck generally has
    good shape and length. Sometimes,
    while standing, the muscling underneath
    is a little heavy. The wither is well developed.
    The shoulder has good length and
    position. The back has good length and
    muscling. The loins are well muscled
    and well connected. The croup has more
    than sufficient length and position. The
    hamstring should be longer. Sometimes
    the foreleg is toed out. The hindleg is
    sickle-hocked. The legs as a whole are
    more than sufficiently developed and
    show quality.
    The walk has good scope and is supple.
    The trot is carried, uphill with good selfcarriage
    and good use of the hindleg. The
    foals jump easily into the canter, have
    balance and suppleness. The foals should
    have more knee action during movement.
    The collection consisted of 14 foals
    picked by the KWPN and two that were
    selected by the owner. The mares were of
    average quality.
    Shown: 16 foals out of 69 breedings.
    Breeding advice: Upper-Class appears to
    fit dressage mares that lack development,
    model and movement. The mare
    must have good knee action.

    And a link to his gorgeous photo. http://www.leadingstallions.nl/img/s...pper-Class.jpg

    link to website of his owner (which has some more info and great photos): http://www.stalpoppelaars.nl/_html/m...&page=hengsten

    and link to the part owners website who I think handles the breeding. This page is not in English but there is a decent video link of him on this page. http://www.lauwvanvliet.nl/hengsten....r_id=1&h_id=12

    Good luck. He is very cute. Great hind end, not so fancy in front. Looks to have a very nice disposition in the video.
