Scuderia 1918 Halifax van het Kluizebos becomes entirely Italian owned. Scuderia 1918 has, indeed, bought Stephex Stable’s share thus becoming sole owner of the phenomenal performer stallion.
Scuderia 1918 Halifax van het Kluizebos will continue to be available to breeders in France with Groupe France Elevage (GFE). His fresh or frozen semen is available also in Italy.
With Italian rider Lorenzo De Luca, Halifax has proven his excellent jumping qualities with successes and important international victories. Halifax’s sporting career has always been on the up and reached its peak in 2017 with the leadership in the WBFSH/FEI 2016-2017 horses rankings and then with his win at the Rome Grand Prix 2018, a very significant record of great value also for Italian riding.
Scuderia 1918 Halifax (BWP 2007 Heartbreaker x Fetiche du Pas) is a son of Heartbreaker, one of the stallions that have made history of the modern day horse sport, and Dalida vd Heffinck who bears the blood of top sires Fetiche du Pas and Darco and is also the mother of two young stallions: Sir Halifax de W&S and Cha Cha-H.
Halifax is by far one of Heartbreaker’s best sons. Belgian champion at the age of six, he achieved 15 international victories in his career, among which the Rome Grand Prix stands out. In Grand Prix competitions he came in second at Windsor, third at Mechelen, fourth in Brussels and fourth again in the World Cup in Verona and Helsinki.
Scuderia 1918 Halifax van het Kluizebos is approved in the BWP, Holstein, KWPN, OS, sBs, Selle Français, Sella Italiano stud books. As a sire he is already passing on his considerable genetics. His sons are mostly still young though very promising. Some are competing in the international young horses circuit (Prestige Van Het Kluizebos, Heroiek T&L Z and others). Amongst those competing in CSIs instead, Monseigneur and approved stallion Nanteuil van T&L stand out.
