Dam Sire - Distlefink
Distelfink had been NZ's leading showjumping sire for over 14 years since computer records started in 1995. Bred by Hennig Bartels of Braunschweig, Germany, Distelfink was licensed as a Hanoverian breeding stallion prior to importing into New Zealand in 1982.
Distelfink's most famous showjumping offspring was Super Moth with Olympic rider John Cottle.
Super Moth and John Cottle are ranked third in the World Standing for the most World Cup wins on the same horse. Sold to the USA, Super Moth won a Denver Grand Prix before a tragic accident meant he had to be put down.
Distlefink''s other top jumper was Duty Free who with rider Maurice Beatson won over 62 classes and more than $72,000. His wins included 7 World Cup qualifiers - one of which was in Australia while competing on the NZ Showjumping Team with 2 other Distelfink's Super Moth and with Falcon as an individual.
