Razzmatazz - Pedigree and Movement for Grand Prix!
Monday, September 3, 2018
Razzmatazz is a 2017 colt by Rashka out of Zabella by Olympic Ferro. He is premium for ISR/Oldenburg and high-score foal of his inspection site. Large, balanced, and expressive, he is also incredibly flashy with a lot of chrome. Razzmatazz shows very uphill carriage and great elastic movement. His gaits are always commented on by all judges. “Mr. Mellow,” he is very friendly, confident, and easy to handle in all situations, yet fancy enough in the ring to always be winning. He won Reserve Regional Championships and is now leading USDF HOY for yearling colts and geldings. He is destined for the dressage ring yet has potential enough to be a Grand Prix jumper prospect as well. He may be our best stallion candidate in the last few years. His sire, Rashka is an ISR/Oldenburg stallion who won the 30-day test with the highest score in all US testing history,164.86, receiving a perfect 10 on his canter from all judges. In 2008, he won 41 classes straight including the Midwest Training Level Championship, with under saddle scores as high as 91+%. He is from four generations of USDF Horse of the Year winners. Rashka's sire Raymeister was the high score of his stallion inspection and is the most winning horse in USDF history. Rashka's dam Tashka is a premium ISR/Oldenburg and AHHA approved mare by Opus. She is an 8-time Horse of the Year winner (4 USDF & 4 ISR/Oldenburg), a multiple regional championship winner, and a DAD Suitability winner. Razzmatazz’s dam, Zabella, is a 16.1+ hand, sweet-natured KWPN mare with incredible elastic gaits (especially in her trot and canter work). She is also approved premium ISR/Oldenburg. She has very clean, expressive, uphill flying changes with good lateral work. Her sire, Olympic Ferro, competed at the 2000 Olympics and assisted his team in achieving a team silver medal, with an individual score of 74.92%. Zabella's dam, Nirvana, is by Fleming, and her dam sire is Calypso I by Cor de la Bryere. She is a well-balanced, modern type Dutch mare, standing 16.2 h. At her 2004 kuering, Nirvana received a First Premium and her "Ster Predicate" ranking.
