Dressage favourite for high demands: First-class type and three equally good paces make Fürst Jazz highly desirable. His sire Fürst Romancier was fourth at the dressage Young Horse World Championships and German national championships, received the dressage-emphasized Ia-main premium and has produced, up to now, 25 licensed stallions, including the double licensing winner For Romance I, and 45 state premium mares in various breeding regions. A special showpiece is his daughter St. Pr. St. Fasine, full sister to For Romance I and II, winner of the 2012 Oldenburg elite mare show as well as German national champion and PSI top price in 2015.
His dam Borendy was Reserve champion of the mare show in Gelderland and made it to the finals of her age group. Her sire, Painted Black, son of the legendary Gribaldi, was competed by Hans Peter Minderhoud and continued his career with Anky van Grunsven finishing World Vice-Champion of the dressage six-year-old horses in Verden. Later on, he was internationally successful at Grand Prix level and World Cup winner.
His grand-dam Orendy produced the much sought-after sire Zhivago and numerous Grand Prix horses. Her full sister Trendy is the dam of the sires Charmeur and Edelman. Jazz in the third generation won international Grand Prix for the Netherlands with Tineke Bartels and Kirsten Beckers and was several-times part of the Dutch dressage team. Honoured with the predicate “keur” and “preferent” for his breeding performances, in 2006 he was named KWPN Horse of the Year in the Netherlands. In 2008, Jazz led the dressage WBFSH ranking for the first time and currently occupies third place. Every mare in his pedigree has produced horses up to Grand Prix level. Fürst Jazz represents the Dutch dam line 100, which produced, among others, the popular sires Estados, Grenoble, Van Gogh and Zuidenwind and is regarded as one of the surest dam lines of the Netherlands.
