GFE buys Hokkaido de Menjo

18 March 2020

The first approved stallion by the very promising Excalibur de la Tour Vidal (Ugano Sitte x Ogano Sitte) who is being ridden at the highest level under Pénélope Leprévost’s saddle, Hokkaido de Menjo finished 8th in the French Championship for 3 year old stallions which took place a few weeks ago in Saint-Lô.

While his sire is reserved for GFE shareholders, his son will be stationed at the Haras de Coquerie in the Manche region alongside Frédéric David's former star, Baloussini (Baloubet du Rouet x Cassini I).

His dam, Radja de Menjo, is by the Anglo-Arab stallion, Mokkaido, and is from of the La Cour d'Auzay line which sired Michel Robert’s star, Galet d'Auzay, as well as the top performer, Mister Davier, who was competed by Julien Epaillard, as well as Daniel Etter’s great mare, Hermine d'Auzay, and Ut de Menjo in show jumping, and Odum de Menjo in eventing.

With a score of 17.25 for gaits and 16 in free jumping in the stallion qualifiers, HOKKAIDO obtained 17.5 in free jumping at the stallion final to secure 8th place.
