Armand xx

Winged Love — Chief Singer

Description of Armand xx

Bred by Gestüt Karlshof – also the breeder of the Derby winners Samum and Schiaparelli – Armand was raced over four seasons, first in the colours of Helmut von Finck from Munich. The owner of one of Germany’s greatest racing stables had purchased the dark brown colt at the Baden-Baden yearling sale at 200.000 euros, before he came into to the ownership of Friederike Leisten. Armand had 25 starts at 2 through 6-year-old and won six races, among them the Grand Prix de St.Moritz, a listed race run on snow, and two steeple chases. His life earnings amount to almost 80.000 euros and he carried a maximum weight of 84.5 kg. Armand’s sire Winged Love was leased for breeding by Gestüt Karlshof for several years. He won the Irish Derby in the colours of the Maktoum family, and placed third in the French equivalent. His dam Arpista came to Karlshof from Gestüt Graditz. Her sire Chief Singer – winner of one of Europe’s major sprint races, the Norcros July Cup – was also used in the well-established East German stud farm’s warmblood breeding programme. When the first Armand offspring was presented for stallion grading at Neumünster in 2010, Alant was licensed for breeding. At 4-year-old, he already put up an outstanding performance in young jumper classes under his rider Dirk Ahlmann, continuing his success in young horse classes in 2013 as he qualified for the 5-year-old jumper championships in Warendorf. In 2012, another Armand son was stallion graded in Marbach: Armagnac has been licensed for breeding in Baden-Württemberg and the breed societies of Southern Germany. In 2015, Elypsa by Armand became champion mare of the Elmshorn elite mare show and finished her mare performance test with a mark of 9.63. By now, first Armand offspring are successfully shown at international level in for eventing, like for example Argolis Tokyo under Albert Khalikov (RUS) and Azrael with Giel Vanhouche (BEL). Armand foals are characterized by good type. His breeding value based on his foals’ type and conformation is rated at 129 index points.
