Diamant de Semilly dethrones Chacco-Blue in WBFSH Sire Ranking

Diamant de Semilly dethrones Chacco-Blue in WBFSH Sire Ranking
After maintaining the top position since 2017, the son of Chambertin, the incredible MECKL stallion Chacco-Blue (Chambertin x Contender) was dethroned by the equally amazing Selle Français, Diamant de Semilly (Le Tot de Semilly x Elf III). 

Since his last 1st place achievement back in 2016, Diamant de Semilly has been close on Chacco-Blue’s heels every year and finally surpassed him thanks to his 26,077 points obtained this year. With a narrow margin of only 77 points less, Chacco-Blue is far from being outdone and takes the second place of the podium of the Jumping Sires of the Year. A neck and neck race for the Sire of the Year title that will undoubtedly extend to 2024! The KWPN stallion Kannan (Voltaire x Nimmerdor) claimed his way back to the top three with a total of 22,013 points, up from the 4th position he was at back in 2022. Few changes regarding the rest of the top-10 Sires, except from the significant comeback of the stallion Comme Il Faut (Cornet Obolensky x Ramiro), gaining 6 places from his 16th position in 2022.

Diarado leads the Eventing Ranking

For the second consecutive year, the Holsteiner stallion Diarado (Diamant de Semilly x Corrado I) claims the top spot in the Sire Ranking for the Eventing discipline amassing 1,662 points. The son of Diamant de Semilly – winner of the Jumping Sire Ranking and number 10 in the Eventing Sire Ranking – has consistently secured a place within the Sire Ranking's top 3 since 2020. Meanwhile the Oldenburg stallion Obos Quality 004 (Quick Star x Domino) and the Trakehner Grafenstolz (Polarion TSF x Camelot) switched their 2022’s places, ranking now respectively at the second and third place, with 1,138 and 1,091 points. With the exception of Jaguar Mail (Hand in Glove xx x Laudanum xx), maintaining his 4th place in the ranking, and Kannan making a notable jump from 9th to 5th position, the remainder of the Eventing top-10 has undergone significant reshuffling. The stallion Zavall VDL (Casall x Emilion) made an extraordinary leap from 53rd place to 6th place. Puissance (Imperius xx x Diamonds are Trumps) now occupies the 8th place of the ranking, a remarkable ascent from his 34th place in 2022. Another noteworthy rise in the ranking is Upsilon’s (Canturo x Fusain du Defey x) with a 9th place this year, up from the 38th position in 2022.
