IRON SPRING FARM imports KWPN Stallion Cum Laude
We want to congratulate Iron Spring Farm with the purchase of Cum Laude (Apache x Weltmeyer x Rubinstein I)!
Cum Laude is a wonderful combination of Dutch and German bloodlines. He is by the Grand Prix sensation Apache, Preferent, who competed at some of the biggest venues in the world, including Aachen, Rotterdam and the World Equestrian Games with Emmelie Scholtens. The pair finished 8th at the World Cup Finals in Göteborg with an 80.782% in the Freestyle. Apache was recognized for his superior movement, particularly the use of his hind leg.
Apache is equally well known as a tremendous sire. He is the sire of six Approved stallions: Cum Laude, Grand Galaxy Win, Hometown, Indian Rock, Improver VDT and Intro K. He’s also the grandsire of three Approved stallions. Apache’s daughters are equally spectacular, with 71% receiving a Star predicate or higher. Apache has numerous Grand Prix offspring, including Gio ridden by Charlotte Dujardin. The duo won five CDI3* and above Grand Prix classes with an 84.04% average in the Grand Prix Freestyle and 81.426% in the Grand Prix Special.
Cum Laude comes from a damline that’s highly recognized for performance success. Two of his siblings sold for very high prices at the prestigious Prinsjesdag Auction. Cum Laude’s dam is the Preferent/Prestatie mare Pacharel T. She’s by legendary Weltmeyer out of the Rubinstein I Keur/Prestatie mare Kacharel T. Weltmeyer and Rubinstein I are both prolific sires and damsires of dressage talent.Pacharel T had seven foals who competed in dressage, including two at the Prix St. Georges level and above.
