Condios Shines in WBFSH Rankings

The Rankings Department for the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses notified Morningside Stud today that the WBFSH Jumping Ranking 2002-2003 for the stallion Condios is incorrect. The WBFSH CD-rom and homepage have Condios ranked as the world's 591st best jumper; in fact, according to the WBFSH, Condios' correct ranking is 355th. The WBFSH will publish a correction in the magazine Horse International and update their homepage.

The WBFSH ranking of jumping horses is based on results in large International Grand Prix, Nations Cup, and World Cup classes.

Based on these corrected data, in his age group (birth year 1995) Condios is the #1 Holsteiner international showjumper, the #2 international showjumping stallion of any breed, and the #6 international showjumper overall.

Two progeny of Coriano, the sire of Condios, appear in the 2002-2003 rankings: Condios (stallion, born 1995) in 355th position and Cyrano de Bergerac (stallion, born 1994) in 815th position. Coriano, a star sire of the Holsteiner Verband, has recently been ranked as the #1 sire by the state of Schleswig-Holstein, the #2 sire by the Holsteiner Verband, and the #4 sire of showjumpers by the German National Federation.
