Victory’s sire Manno (by Fabricius x Zakerno) is, of course, very well known. Not only because of his own achievements, but certainly because of his offspring’s performances too.
Dam Rinova is ster and a grey daughter of the at that time super achiever Handro. As son of Waterman he decreases the influence of Renovo in Victory’s pedigree. Granddam Hinova is keur and a grey too. She is also the granddam of Rijnberg (by Fabricius), the successful harness horse of the Boelens Stables. The grey colour comes from Batello, the sire of Hinova keur.
Victory is not only the only KWPN approved grey stallion, he is also the only approved grey Manno son.

Who does not remember the fantastic greys in harness horse history: Ulex, Sneeuwkoning, Glamour and former National Champion Edelster! And in the past years the greys Oxcan and Lamour, formely in the team of the Schep Stables, were successful. It is easier to make a team with greys and therefore they are more valuable.
Using Victory gives you the opportunity to breed a grey yourself. Victory will produce grey offspring with a 50 per cent chance with black, brown and chestnut mares and with 75 per cent chance with grey mares.


Victory showed a fantastic foal collection in 2006, which enthused the spectators. The young Victory offspring showed great stature and great movements. It was a pleasure to look at these foals.
Last year Victory also produced several first premium foals of whom Cassanova, also bred by Victory’s breeder W.M. Veneklaas Slots, was qualified for the the National Foals Selection Final.
The oldest offspring of Victory is now two-years-old. One more year and we can enjoy the first group of three-year-olds!


offspring inspection: approved
