The GFE, Le Groupe France Elevage, has announced the passing away of the KWPN-sire, Vleut. Aged 20-years-old the stallion has passed away after a colic.
The son of Quick Star was bred by MW. A en W. Wolters (Groningen, the Netherlands). Together with Edwina Alexander and later, Abdullah Al Sharbatly Vleut performed at the highest level.
In 2011 the stallion impressed at the CSI5* World Cup in Lyon, France. The pair placed in over 20 international 1.50 and 1.60m classes. "It was a stallion with a great mindset and big heart," Alexander states.
In 2015, Alsharbatly took over the reins. The pair jumped up to a 1.60m level.
Also in breeding, Vleut has left his legacy with his offspring. Most famous are Doron Kuipers his sire, Edingbourgh (mf. Darco), Erynn Ballard his Charming Force B (mf. Flipper) and De Vleut (mf. Caretino).
