Jingo di Dieu d’Arras (Clinton - Vitesse x Codex 2)

The Belgian Warmblood (BWP) stallion Jingo di Dieu d’Arras (Clinton - Vitesse x Codex 2) has been sold to the USA – a great story for his breeders from the Jeremy Vanhoutte family. Jingo was the first product of Vitesse and was approved by Belgian Sport Horse (sBs). Although his career began under the saddle of one of his breeders, Vanessa Casais, she soon gave up her place to her sister-in-law Virginie Thonon who competed with Jingo as a six-year-old. Good results followed: fifth in the 6yo Belgian championship in Gesves 2015, before joining the Sunshine Tour of Spain, and then achieving a good sixth place in the 7yo Belgian championship. This of course, drew considerable attention to the handsome grey, although he will remain under Belgian colours as he crosses the Atlantic to continue his career under the saddle of Filip de Wandel. According to Manu Casais, “This morning, when he left, it was obviously very emotional and everyone shed a little tear. It was, above, all, a great family story […] and the goal we set ourselves was achieved. I want to thank the Lenssens brothers who contributed to this story, as well as our partner Bjorn Paelinck who accompanied us on this adventure. For us, the story is not over, as we still have some Jingo products at home, as well as several offspring from his mother.” - www.studforlife.com
