Condios Approved by Australian Holsteiner Studbook

Morningside Stud has announced that its 7-year-old Holsteiner stallion CONDIOS (Coriano x Landgraf I) has been approved for breeding by the Australian Holsteiner Horse Association (AHHA). The AHHA is an Associate Member of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses, and the studbook's policies are informed by the Holsteiner Verband in Germany.

"We are delighted that Condios has been approved by the Australian Holsteiner Horse Association," states Tom Reed, owner of Morningside Stud. "With this approval, Condios is now approved in Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia, making him the most global of all Irish-owned stallions. Beginning this year we will be selling frozen semen to Australian and New Zealand breeders through International Horse Breeders Ltd., our agent in Australia. We believe that Condios is the perfect sire for the excellent Thoroughbred mares found throughout Australia and New Zealand, and his offspring should become the next
generation of top performers in all three Olympic disciplines."

Condios, a finalist in the 2001 German Showjumping Championship, is based in Denmark and competes full time in Denmark and Germany. A Grade A showjumper in Ireland and Denmark, in the last twelve months Condios has won 1.30 and 1.40 metre classes in Denmark and Germany, placed 2nd in his first and only 1.50 metre (in Denmark) and placed in his first and only Grand Prix (in Germany). In 2002 Condios will continue competing in 1.40 metre, 1.50 metre, and Grand Prix
classes. The Danish Federation has announced that next year it intends to start Condios in Nations Cup competitions.
