05 Jan Manno preferent
January 5, 2010
Only extraordinary stallions earn the Preferent predicate and Manno more than meets those standards. He won many national championships and various sons and daughters are proving themselves in competition and keuringen.
Manno received a standing ovation upon his retirement in Zwolle. This after the chairman of the harness stallion committee, Henk Rootveld, made the announcement that Manno had been awarded the Preferent predicate. In 2002, the now 16-Year-Old Mann was the Harness Horse of the year, in 2005 he was the KWPN Horse of the Year and in 2006 he was awarded the Keur predicate.
Breeder Jopie Verweij was also honored, as well as Manno and approved sons Unieko, Vaandrager HBC and Victory as well as Taunita, top sport mare and honors champion of 2009.
