IRON MAN VAN DE PADENBORRE
DARCO X CHIN CHIN
Iron Man van de Padenborre is an International 1.60m stallion by legendary DARCO x CHIN CHIN. Ridden by No.10 in the world Gregory Whatelet!
Iron Man van de Padenborre is a young stallion that has already been named ‘Elite’ by the BWP as he sets out on his international career with Gregory Wathlet. This is real breeding – Iron Man van de Padenborre, by Darco out of a mare by Chin Chin, traces to the original foundation mare of the Padenborre Stud, Draisienne.
Iron Man’s full brother, Ho Go vd Padenborre, is a 1.60m international with Irish International Rider Denis Lynch (2nd at the CSI5* in Los Angeles, two years ago) while Cevo Socrates (who was Socrates vd Padenborre) is a full brother in blood to Iron Man. Iron Man is out of Dirka vd Padenborre (Chin Chin / Jessica vd Padenbore) while Socrates is out of Dirka’s full-sister, Pin Chin.
“He is a very good breeding stallion, he gives his foals strength, beautiful horses, big horses. The oldest are now six years old. He’s only ten years old, and look at how he jumped at Aachen, he is a super jumper.
Quote from Iron Man’s rider Gregory Whatalet;
“I have a few of Iron Man’s offspring at home. I think they are really good. I have to admit I am not really a specialist for foals, but I had three foals last year. I have also purchased two of his offspring that are three years old. We did free jumping with them that looked really good. A bit massive like Iron Man, but really careful with a lot of blood. Iron Man himself does also have a lot of blood. I haven’t seen his oldest offspring yet. I think they are six now, I have been told that there are a few very nice four-year-olds.”
“I think you can use for him all kinds of mares. Some people say that you need blood for him, but then I say no, he doesn’t need blood because he has a lot of blood himself. I ride him every morning one hour before the class, because he has so much blood. He doesn’t look like he has so much blood when you see him, but he has. That is his quality in the end and for sure the mares shouldn’t be too massive.”
“Iron Man himself has an amazing mind and is really brave. He is sensitive in a way, for example if he sees something on the floor and he doesn’t know it, he will spook a bit. In the ring he doesn’t spook for anything. To work with him is easy.”
