Rilory (Sport) - Calvados x Ekstein x Major de la Cour x Lugano van la Roche.  Rilory is a 16.2h 1998 KWPN mare.  Rilory earned her Sport predicate in Europe prior to being imported by Allison and Diane Van Sickle of Blue Star Equine.  She competed successfully at the 1.50m grand prix level in Europe.   Rilory is an athlete through and through and is a big moving, powerful mare.  Sadly, we lost Rilory in a tragic pasture accident in the fall of 2011. 
Here are a few of the notable classes that Rilory competed in:
2005 FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships (7 year olds)
2006 Zelhelm Grand Prix
2006 VDL Groep Prix
2006 Hema Hengelo Grand Prix
2006 Eurocommerce Grand Prix
2006 Robert Muntel Prix
2007 Eurocommerce Grand Prix
2007 Zelhelm Grand Prix
Damline and pedigree:
Rilory's dam, Lory, is a Preferent Prestatie mare, the highest level of recognition that a KWPN broodmare can achieve.  Lory has earned these predicates due to her outstanding production record.  Lory has produced 14 foals thus far, several of which have earned a variety of predicates to date including Sport, Ster, IBOP, and PROK.  Zwico, by Sam R and out of Lory sold at the KWPN Select Sale in 2007 for 34,000 Euros and is competing in Belgium.  Lory's son Anton H made it to the second round of the KWPN stallion selection.  This damline has also produced grand prix horses Lord Van Essene, Noblesse Van Essene, and Quattro Essene.
On Rilory's sire side, Calvados (Keur) was a Selle Francais that became an improvement sire to the Dutch breed.  Calvados jumped at the top of the sport, as did his sire, Uriel.  Calvados' dam, Gold Rose, was a conformation champion, but also jumped on the French team from 1979 to 1982, winning along the way.  Calvados' granddam, Jolie Rose, produced 6 international showjumpers.   Damsire Ekstein (Zion x Joost) is the sire of Olympic horse Joel, has sired 6 approved sons, has at least two dozen offspring jumping internationally, is the damsire of Olympic champion Hickstead, won his stallion testing as a three year old and also won the KWPN 7 year old showjumping championships.  Great grandsire Major de la Cour has sired 15 approved sons and 45 offspring that have competed at the 1.40m level and higher.  Below that in the pedigree we find Lugano van la Roche, the sire of the legendary Darco.
