Principal Mare: Astek Ooh La La
Sire - Fetiche Du Pas
Son of Le Tot De Semilly, Fetiche Du Pas was born in 1993. He was Vice Champion of France at 4 years and classified "Elite". In 1997 he was sold at the FENCES auction for a world record of 230,000 francs, (Over 1/2 a million NZ dollars). He went on to become the French 6-year-old champion with Eric Navet and in 2000, he won the International Grand Prix at 7 years of age in Dinard and Saint-Lo.
Tragically in 2002, Fetiche's successful jumping career was ended after a terrible road accident where Fetiche ended up in the middle of a motorway, completely stuck!
He was the combination Le Tot de Semilly and Almé, along with two Thoroughbreds, Night & Day and Furioso.

2004 NZWA Principal Bay Mare
Astek Ooh LaLa has Principal Mare Status for her achievements in Showjumping. She was bred by John Cottle and Sue Fowler from Astek Stud. She was a product of frozen semen breeding, by the French stallion Fetiche Du Pas out of a Ramirez mare Madonna. Her jumping career started with John Cottle and she was also formerly ridden by Julie Davey, Tess Williams and Lisa Cubitt. She jumped right up to 1.45m including the prestigious Lady Rider of the Year Class at the Horse of the Year Show.
She has won 3 event starts and even got 68% in a dressage test – proving that she’s not just a jumping star! Her filly foal by Cachassini II (called Cachava HS now owned by PL Performance Horses) was presented at classification for 75%. Astek Ohh La La herself was awarded a Merit (78%) from Gerd Kust during the same tour.
