2019 / coming 2 yrs old
branded Hanoverian gelding
By Valentino, out of Valencia III (Indoctro/Calido I/Lord Calando)
Marvel is truly the whole package. He is a top prospect for jumping.
He has an impressive pedigree, bred for sport. Sire Valentino (Now or Never M/Belisar) is in the top 1% of all German sires. He competed to 1.40 m himself, has produced 1.50-1.60 m jumpers, and was ranked #8 on the WBFSH world sire rankings for eventing in 2019.
Damsire Indoctro (Capitol I/Caletto II) has consistently been one of the top ranked jumping sires in the world. He has sired numerous 1.60 m jumpers, including a number of Olympic competitors (represented by 2 direct offspring at the 2016 Olympics, and 5 at the 2012 Olympics).
Marvel comes from a very versatile performance family: his maternal half sister is competing at 1.40 m (Barbara HPF, by Autobahn) and his maternal brother won 5 year old Dressage Suitability at Dressage at Devon (Arioctro HPF, by Ariadus).
Marvel is a lovely type, with three good gaits and a particularly good canter.
Best of all, he has an unbeatable temperament - he is brave, personable and extremely easy to work with. He will be slowly backed this summer. His price is subject to change once he is. PM for VIDÉOS.
Expected to finish 16.2-3
