CRACK – national champion of the six-year-old jumping horses in 2021. Last year he had been given a break from sport because of the great demand at stud.
This Cornet Obolensky son is thrilling in his exceptional rideability and willingness to perform. These qualities along with his ability and way of jumping make him a stallion with a massive potential in sport and as a sire. This year he is again being shown and we are excited to see his future development.
Boasting great own performance and a very reliable damline, Crack should well be able to pass on athleticism and performance. He is certain to pass on his genial personality and super rideability. Mares should have a smoothly connected topline. He very reliably produces frame and height.

With several World Cup, Nations Cup and championship placings under his belt and having crowned his career under Marco Kutscher with team gold at the Madrid Europeans in 2011, Cornet Obolensky is considered one of the most successful international top level show jumpers of his time. He has been retired from the active show jumping scene since and is now considered one of the best jumping sires in the world. Names of high-achievers like Cornardo NRW, Cornet d’Amour, and Comme il faut are directly connected to Cornet Obolensky.
Cornet Obolensky also carries proven Holsteiner genes through his paternal grandsire Corrado I, his maternal grand sire Nimmerdor, as well as Randel’s sire Ramiro.
Crack’s dam line has distinguished itself at international level in competition. His sister Corcega la Silla by Casall attracted a lot of attention in youngster classes at international horse shows under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and is now very successfully shown at S level by Jose Antonio Chedraui, particularly in Mexico and North America. A brother to Crack, Inar C by Quidam de Revel, competed in jumping classes at international level to 1.50 m already at nine-yearold. His second dam Adele has also produced the successful sport and breeding stallion Ouinar by Quidam de Revel.
Personal contribution of Crack
Crack’s exceptional jumping quality had become obvious already in his first showing season in 2019. He won almost all young horse classes he was shown in at marks up to 8.6. Brought on further and matured, he qualified for the five-year-old National Championship in Warendorf in 2020. In 2021, Crack became State and National Champion of the six-year-old jumping horses, an exceptional and unprecedented success for a Verband stallion.
